So a couple neighbors and I are thinking of taking out a booth at the Farmer's Market in Lexington in the spring. I have lamb. Joe has started raising chickens (and may try Cornish game hens and ducks) inaddition to lambs, and he runs beef, which he currently markets conventionally but could easily enough start taking when I take the lambs. Woody has eggs, and honey, and some veggies. His mom Opal can really put up jams and jellies and veggies. Joe's wife Edna makes great baked goods( so does Joe for that matter). She suggested taking the eggs and some of the veggies another neighbor grows on 12 acres he leases from them, and making little quiches out of them. Zeldon, who grows the veggies, would probably let us pick whatever was in season.
This begins a series of posts, where I am going to post the email conversations I have had to this point with Frank Kipe, of Microdairy Designs. He is drawing up my plans for the sheep dairy. In this post I am hopefully going to master posting a video. This is a video I took of the site we have created for the sheep dairy. It is basically in my backyard. Nothing like a 90 second commute!
