Greetings from Minnesota! It’s the 19th of December, and we still don’t have any snow. Weird. But nice actually.
I know I haven’t shared much about the farm lately, but I’ve been saving up all sorts of fun pictures for you.
First, we had a lovely little Carmel-colored calf a few days ago. He’s a bull, and boy is he cute.
We also had a special addition to the herd a few days ago.
If you’ve been following along for awhile, you might recall that Sugar the Cow is one of my favorites.
Sugar’s one granddaughter is 2806, and 2806 had a lovely baby heifer!
So Sugar is now a great-grandmother. It’s pretty fun to watch her family grow. 🙂
And here’s the last cow picture I have to share. These little twin girls got moved to our group calf hutches last week. I think they are pretty unique, and I see a lot of calves.
Two little twins girls and two little white mustaches!
And speaking of our group hutches, blog calf Etta is now one of the oldest animals in the group hutches, and she’s growing well. She’ll be ready to move into the barn and become part of a larger group soon.
If you found this post because of the “giveaway” in the title, you’re in luck!
It’s perhaps a bit late for Christmas, but my little blog giveaway should arrive in time for New Year’s. It’s cheese!
I really am thankful for all of you readers, and I wish I could share a Christmas gift with you all.
Unfortunately, that would blow my gift budget to smithereens. But I can give one lucky reader a gift! I’m giving away two pounds of cheese of your choice from My Cheese Store.
You can pick two of the 1-pound blocks or one of the 2-pound blocks – whichever you so desire.
I know I’ve done cheese giveaways before, but I honestly can’t think of anything else as tasty or appropriate for me to share. I’m also proud to give this cheese because it’s made by the cooperative we sell our milk to.
So how do you enter??
Just leave me a comment. You can tell me about your favorite cheese or dairy product, your favorite holiday treat, or anything else you wish to share.
You can also gain one additional entry by tweeting, blogging or otherwise sharing my giveaway and then leaving me a comment telling me you did so.
Because I want this cheese to arrive to the winner in time for New Year’s, the giveaway will close Wednesday, Dec 21st @ 11:59 pm.
I wish you all the best in your final holiday preparations!
