ACTIVE JELLY BUSH HONEY 250G JAR $39 /Lismore NSW 2480 Australia

Marketplaceaffordablewholefoods posted the article • 0 comments • 43 views • 2019-07-01 15:24 • came from similar tags

 
 
 
 

 
 
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Our active Jelly Bush honey has a high activity rating of 20+ and a MGO rating of 800+.

Active Jelly Bush honey has the same health promoting properties as New Zealand’s Manuka honey and is often referred to as Australia’s Manuka. Active Jelly Bush honey is the ideal compliment to your first aid kit or medicine cabinet as it is widely recognised for its many healing properties and is considered to be one of the best natural medicines.

Health benefits of Jelly bush honey

Jelly Bush honey is a potent wound healer, dramatically accelerating healing time and can greatly reduce the risk of infection and scarring.  It works as a natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial when applied topically to a wound as well as internally for many conditions such as ulcers and throat infections.  It is also very safe to use directly on burns, grazes and broken skin.
 
 
 ABOUT US:
 

 
WE LOVE WHOLEFOODS! Before Denise (the fantastic cook) and I (the fantastic eater), opened our store in Lismore, NSW, fresh affordable wholefoods were just not available to everyone. We had to change this. Taking a big step in 2008 we borrowed the money for our first store against the only thing we could, a heavily forested piece of land with a small shed in the beautiful Northern Rivers, our family home. A very scary thing to do but love will make you do almost anything. So our love for people and delicious wholesome food took over.[The Shed]The shed that started it all

We opened our first store in Lismore, the original bulk foods store in NSW, based completely on our life long philosophy of doing everything in a fair and ethical way. Treating the environment, the land, the farmers, the food as well as our staff, customers, friends, family and each other with sincere respect and generosity whilst having fun and laughter along the way is most important to us. We are them and they are us.

Trust is what has sustained us, and it is from this place that we strive to provide all our customers with the best quality wholefoods at the most affordable prices. Whether you are shopping with us in our Lismore store, the more recently opened Coffs Harbour store (2014) or online you can trust that your fresh food is handled with the utmost care, and friendly professional service.

ACTIVATED ALMONDS (INSECTICIDE FREE) 51.9$/kg

Marketplaceaffordablewholefoods posted the article • 0 comments • 38 views • 2019-07-01 15:13 • came from similar tags

 
 
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
 
 
 
Using a long soak and slow dehydration method our activated almonds are locally made in Woodburn NSW using sustainably grown, insecticide free, Australian almonds from Belehris Estates in South Australia.

Activating almonds refers to soaking/sprouting raw almonds in salted, filtered water for 12 hours to begin the process of germination, encouraging an almonds digestive enzymes to be activated…ultimately awakening their life force.

These enzymes break down phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors therefore making almonds easier to digest and the nutrients more readily available for our bodies to absorb. Super yummy too!

Honeybee Wrap is a reusable beeswax wrap, an eco friendly alternative to plastic wrap and a fantastic food preserver.

Honeybee Wrap is a reusable beeswax wrap, an eco friendly alternative to plastic wrap and a fantastic food preserver. By using a reusable beeswax wrap you are helping to reduce the 8 million tons of plastic that enters our oceans each year!

Hello im sherrie owner and creator of Honeybee wrap.

HoneyBee Wrap originated in my family kitchen 5 years ago in the Northern Rivers near beautiful Byron Bay. Having a big family, with 5 children I was always looking for greener alternative to preserve our food fresh without the use of plastic. That is until I started making and using Honeybee wrap.

To this day you can still find our little studio in Mullumbimby! Our reusable wraps are  100% Australian made and manufactured. 

In fact, our commitment to sustainability doesn't only stop at making an environmentally friendly alternative product but we give back to our community by employing locals and buying locally sourced ingredients. We also give away our by product fabric waste which is recycled. And each year we help a number of schools and community projects by fundraising their green activities. If you have a green idea we would love to hear from you!

WHAT'S IN OUR WRAP?

Our reusable food wrap are made with 100% organic cotton, natural Australian beeswax, organic coconut oil, tree resin and Australian jojoba oil. 

One of the reason why our beeswax wrap are of the highest quality on the market is because we only use the best ingredients. Starting with 100% certified organic cotton (GOTS certified) with low impact dyes. This means that the cotton is grown without the use of chemical and pesticide.

Did you know that cotton is the most widely grown crops in the world, growing conventional cotton is also one of the most chemical-­intensive?

Our reusable beeswax wraps are actually so green that when you are finished with them you can put them in your worm farm or compost bin!

ABOUT BEESWAX

A Permaculture internship on Christmas Island’s Hidden Garden Sustainable Farm is a one-of-a-kind experience. Much more than a Permaculture farm, Hidden Garden offers a unique opportunity to be part of a ground breaking project that is literally breathing the life back into the land – degraded and depleted after decades of mining. Set against the back-drop of one of the world’s most diverse ecologies, Christmas Island is surrounded by abundant marine life, unique eco-systems and pristine oceans.

Our six week practical Permaculture internships are for anyone interested in living a more sustainable self-reliant and resilient lifestyle as a productive citizen of our one and only planet. Study the principles of Permaculture and the art of more sustainable living with our qualified and passionate Hidden Garden team working together to realise the common goal of quality local food production, regardless of where you live. To promote and grow organic foods that are not only better for you but ‘cheaper’ because there is more food at a lesser environmental cost. Less food miles, less food storage and packaging, less toxic chemicals, less water, and less distribution cost! We’re a mix of part science, part technology and part heritage farming. We grow low input high yielding organic produce working alongside nature. We make use of local waste streams turning them into resources, aided by science and technology, to accelerate naturally occurring processes.

Purely organic and based on natural biological farming techniques – we compost community waste bringing land back to life

Othershidden garden posted the article • 0 comments • 35 views • 2019-06-29 14:51 • came from similar tags

 

 
 
 Purely organic and based on natural biological farming techniques – we compost community waste bringing land back to life…we can farm practically anywhere!

Our farms are designed to be completely self-sustaining. We build fertility by converting community waste into the very best compost. Bio-Vital™ compost was developed by co-founder, Paul Taylor over four decades of research and application on degraded systems all over the world. Our Bio-VitalTM compost is used to remediate degraded soil and enhance conditions for growing fresh organic produce. This specialist aerobic thermal compost is used to enhance raised growing beds and aquaponic systems.

Depending on local conditions and requirements our modular farming system can include market gardens with raised garden beds, roofed greenhouses, annual row cropping and Permaculture forests. The gardens self-propagate providing on-going seed supply.

Chickens, geese, ducks, and guinea fowl are an essential part of the Hidden Garden design. They help control insects and weeds control and provide eggs and fertiliser. Hidden Garden Sustainable Farms favours Chicken Caravan systems which allows us to move the chickens around, giving them an open area to forage.

The ultimate vision for our farms is that they will be run off the grid, with all electricity and water coming from the site itself. All roofed structures will capture and store water, and if needed other methods for storing water in-ground will also be used. Power from solar and wind generation will be introduced on appropriate sites to supply the farm with its energy needs.

Description

This rust eraser removes rust from cast iron and steel. It is a semi-flexible rubber sanding block with 120 grit impregnated uniformly in the block. We find it very useful for removing superficial rust from our scythe blades on the odd occasion we forget to give them a light oiling after use . The block is a comfortable size to hold in your hand, being 80 mm x 50 mm x 20 mm. Unlike other sanding blocks, it retains its abrasive qualities until the block has been completely worn away – just like a pencil eraser.

Advanced Scythe Kit – Left Handed $358.29 inc. GST . Grass Blades / Totnes Valley, NSW

Marketplacehazelcombefarm posted the article • 0 comments • 35 views • 2019-06-29 14:40 • came from similar tags

 
Description

The Advanced Scythe Kit consists of the 70 cm grass blade, the snath of your choice, a copper stone sheath, the Mailander Gruene Drache whetstone, the Picard scythe anvil and Picard peening hammer.

This kit is well suited to someone who is experienced working with metal and feels confident they could peen a blade freehanded.

Blade Length

There is only one length of blades that are left handed. We therefore recommend that if you feel you could manage a right handed scythe, which by the way is still used with two hands, you would be better to choose a right handed one. You have a much broader selection of blade lengths for right handed scythes.

If you are shorter than about 160 cm (5 ft 3 in), choose the Short snathIf you are between 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in) tall, choose the Standard snathIf you are between 176 cm and 188 cm (6 ft 2 in) tall, choose the Long snathIf you are between 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in) tall, choose the Extra Long snath

 

Please note: If you don’t feel confident to tackle freehanded peening at this stage, the Starter Scythe Kit, left handed provides you with an easier way of sharpening your blade. If you feel you would prefer to get a right handed kit, see the Starter Scythe Kit or Advanced Scythe Kit.

Description

The Advanced Scythe Kit consists of the 70 cm grass blade, the snath of your choice, a copper stone sheath, the Mailander Gruene Drache whetstone, the Picard scythe anvil and Picard peening hammer.

This kit is well suited to someone who is experienced working with metal and feels confident they could peen a blade freehanded.

Blade Length

There is only one length of blades that are left handed. We therefore recommend that if you feel you could manage a right handed scythe, which by the way is still used with two hands, you would be better to choose a right handed one. You have a much broader selection of blade lengths for right handed scythes.

Snath Length
 
  • If you are shorter than about 160 cm (5 ft 3 in), choose the Short snath
  • If you are between 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in) tall, choose the Standard snath
  • If you are between 176 cm and 188 cm (6 ft 2 in) tall, choose the Long snath
  • If you are between 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in) tall, choose the Extra Long snath

Description

The Starter Scythe Kit consists of a grass blade of your choice, the snath of your choice, a copper stone sheath, the peening jig and the Mailander Gruene Drache whetstone.

This kit is well suited to someone who mainly wants to mow grass, but hasn’t had much experience working with metal.

Blade Length

If you mainly wish to mow in enclosed spaces such as around trees, garden beds and fences, the trimming blade would be most useful for you. If you wish to mow mainly wide open areas of grass, and maybe even make some hay, the field blade (75 cm) or even the hay making blade (90 cm) would be a better choice. If you have both enclosed and open areas to mow, the all-purpose blade would be a good choice. The vegie garden blade is for mowing in narrower rows in your vegetable garden. We’ve even seen people mowing salad vegetables with this blade when harvesting salad vegetables for market.

Snath Length


If you are shorter than about 160 cm (5 ft 3 in), choose the Short snathIf you are between 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in) tall, choose the Standard snathIf you are between 176 cm and 188 cm (6 ft 2 in) tall, choose the Long snathIf you are between 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in) tall, choose the Extra Long snath

Please note: If you are an experienced metal worker or blacksmith and feel confident that you could peen out the blade freehanded, see the Advanced Scythe Kit. If you are 100% left handed. see the Starter Scythe Kit, left handed or Advanced Scythe Kit, left handed.

Blade Attachment Ring $15.75 inc. GST (Totnes Valley Road, Totnes Valley, NSW)

Description

The blade attachment ring is the connecting piece of metal between the scythe blade and its handle, the snath.

If you buy a snath from us, this blade attachment ring and the accompanying Allen key are included with the snath. However, more and more people like to make their own snaths, as they did in days gone by, in which case it is very useful to be able to buy the blade attachment ring separately.

Included are some photos of how the blade attachment ring attaches the blade to the snath.

Photo 1 shows the blade attachment ring slid past the notch at the bottom of the snath with the nub of the blade about to be fitted into the notch.

Photo 2 shows the blade attachment ring has been slid back down so it is now positioned over the tang of the blade.

Photo 3 shows how the blade is secured using the two little grub screws and the Allen key.

00:03:19,250 --> 00:03:21,269

three hours of Sun today and each day




47

00:03:21,468 --> 00:03:24,118

for the next couple days and then we'll




48

00:03:24,318 --> 00:03:25,980

plan them out next it's time for a quick




49

00:03:26,180 --> 00:03:27,989

herbal orientation for this guy who




50

00:03:28,188 --> 00:03:30,330

might be sent to run herb errands for




51

00:03:30,530 --> 00:03:33,149

cooking so you know green onions right




52

00:03:33,348 --> 00:03:36,659

pay attention now okay ready cilantro




53

00:03:36,859 --> 00:03:38,789

this one's dill if she wants to do




54

00:03:38,989 --> 00:03:40,368

that's what she wants this is chives




55

00:03:40,568 --> 00:03:42,539

it's kind of like onions but it's like




56

00:03:42,739 --> 00:03:45,929

tiny in this oregano this is called




57

00:03:46,128 --> 00:03:49,890

oregano this is called time this one is




58

00:03:50,090 --> 00:03:54,439

called sage this one is summer savory




59

00:03:54,639 --> 00:03:56,939

she wanted oregano when we send you out




60

00:03:57,139 --> 00:03:59,759

to get herbs take scissors and just clip




61

00:03:59,959 --> 00:04:01,020

off little pieces like that




62

00:04:01,219 --> 00:04:08,279

okay we're using this portable somatic




63

00:04:08,479 --> 00:04:11,129

cell count kit to detect subclinical




64

00:04:11,329 --> 00:04:12,779

mastitis now I didn't tell you why we're




65

00:04:12,979 --> 00:04:15,719

doing this we're doing this because when




66

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,718

we got Alice the milk cow her milk at




67

00:04:18,918 --> 00:04:22,110

least from back quarters tasted salty




68

00:04:22,310 --> 00:04:24,600

salty tasting milk can be a sign of




69

00:04:24,800 --> 00:04:26,699

mastitis we've also been reading about




70

00:04:26,899 --> 00:04:29,040

it and there's a lot of other possible




71

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:30,449

reasons there's actually a ton of people




72

00:04:30,649 --> 00:04:33,019

right now on all the online cow boards




73

00:04:33,218 --> 00:04:35,189

posting about their salty tasting milk




74

00:04:35,389 --> 00:04:37,110

we're gonna do this test though this may




75

00:04:37,310 --> 00:04:39,809

help us know if she actually




76

00:04:40,009 --> 00:04:41,910

besides the concern would be that she




77

00:04:42,110 --> 00:04:43,588

might be like in an early stage of




78

00:04:43,788 --> 00:04:47,100

mastitis she actually her milk looks




79

00:04:47,300 --> 00:04:50,519

great and her udder looks fine so a lot




80

00:04:50,718 --> 00:04:53,429

is reassuring and we're gonna refer back




81

00:04:53,629 --> 00:04:55,709

to our instructions that Wilders eating




82

00:04:55,908 --> 00:04:59,968

four drops in milk okay we're okay no we




83

00:05:00,168 --> 00:05:02,549

only need four drops of milk on each one




84

00:05:02,749 --> 00:05:07,169

of these three four we're gonna rinse




85

00:05:07,369 --> 00:05:09,629

that out and then four drops of




86

00:05:09,829 --> 00:05:13,829

developer on each trip we've got to wait




87

00:05:14,028 --> 00:05:15,359

five minutes so while we're waiting I'm




88

00:05:15,559 --> 00:05:17,489

gonna taste all these milks I'm just




89

00:05:17,689 --> 00:05:31,170

tasting the left-back salty you're right




90

00:05:31,370 --> 00:05:34,538

back tastes really good to me




91

00:05:34,749 --> 00:05:37,649

right front tastes good left front




92

00:05:37,848 --> 00:05:38,879

tastes good they all taste good at the




93

00:05:39,079 --> 00:05:40,439

left back though tastes bad here's the




94

00:05:40,639 --> 00:05:43,139

test results left front is white right




95

00:05:43,338 --> 00:05:47,218

front right back and then here is the




96

00:05:47,418 --> 00:05:49,679

left back and what we're supposed to do




97

00:05:49,879 --> 00:05:52,649

is compare the color to this test strip




98

00:05:52,848 --> 00:05:54,569

honestly it's closest to this one which




99

00:05:54,769 --> 00:06:02,639

is 1500 cells times a thousand from Noli




100

00:06:02,838 --> 00:06:04,379

so it looks like she may have mastitis




101

00:06:04,579 --> 00:06:06,899

in her left back quarter this too this




102

00:06:07,098 --> 00:06:08,670

isn't a definitive diagnostic test




103

00:06:08,870 --> 00:06:10,468

format size but it looks like she




104

00:06:10,668 --> 00:06:14,189

probably does so we have some learning




105

00:06:14,389 --> 00:06:16,528

to do about treating mastitis we're




106

00:06:16,728 --> 00:06:18,059

doing everything right now we're milking




107

00:06:18,259 --> 00:06:19,920

her out in that back left quarter




108

00:06:20,120 --> 00:06:22,559

especially and her milk actually looks




109

00:06:22,759 --> 00:06:24,329

good it's not really it's not chunky or




110

00:06:24,528 --> 00:06:27,430

gloppy or anything




111

00:06:29,060 --> 00:06:31,960

this is by far my least favorite thing




112

00:06:32,160 --> 00:06:34,360

that we do around here I'm gonna dis bud




113

00:06:34,560 --> 00:06:37,449

all the goats there's a lot of reasons




114

00:06:37,649 --> 00:06:41,430

we do this I do think that it's not




115

00:06:41,629 --> 00:06:43,509

necessary if you're planning on keeping




116

00:06:43,709 --> 00:06:46,420

a goat but most people buying goats




117

00:06:46,620 --> 00:06:49,540

expect it and it would be a big turn-off




118

00:06:49,740 --> 00:06:52,000

to many people but we're going to knock




119

00:06:52,199 --> 00:06:53,590

it out really quick and let these babies




120

00:06:53,790 --> 00:06:57,830

go back to their mum




121

00:07:01,589 --> 00:07:03,559

all right you're done let's get you back




122

00:07:03,759 --> 00:07:07,520

to mommy now it's lucky to Luckys turn




123

00:07:07,720 --> 00:07:09,910

poor little lady sorry girl




124

00:07:10,110 --> 00:07:12,910

and that was Molly's turn sorry lady




125

00:07:13,110 --> 00:07:18,079

alright she's done these babies they're




126

00:07:18,279 --> 00:07:19,278

not gonna probably let me get close




127

00:07:19,478 --> 00:07:21,468

they're gonna say we remember what you




128

00:07:21,668 --> 00:07:23,960

just did to us hey guys




129

00:07:24,160 --> 00:07:28,929

a little burnt heads you guys are cute




130

00:07:29,129 --> 00:07:31,939

and that should be the lastest Budig I




131

00:07:32,139 --> 00:07:35,689

have to do this year she that calf is




132

00:07:35,889 --> 00:07:37,850

polled and we don't have a name for yet




133

00:07:38,050 --> 00:07:40,338

that calf and this guy you can see his




134

00:07:40,538 --> 00:07:42,290

horns I'm gonna let his horns grow




135

00:07:42,490 --> 00:07:44,959

though I'll tell you why because he's




136

00:07:45,158 --> 00:07:46,730

gonna be beefed within a year he's a




137

00:07:46,930 --> 00:07:48,350

good size two month old calf he's gonna




138

00:07:48,550 --> 00:07:50,540

be beefed within a year we're not we




139

00:07:50,740 --> 00:07:53,149

don't have to sell him yeah I just don't




140

00:07:53,348 --> 00:07:54,588

think it's gonna be a problem so he'll




141

00:07:54,788 --> 00:07:56,329

have some little horns by the time we




142

00:07:56,528 --> 00:07:57,739

eat but Sherman you can probably hear




143

00:07:57,939 --> 00:07:59,359

Breanna is mowing down here and you




144

00:07:59,559 --> 00:08:00,739

might say why aren't you mowing you're




145

00:08:00,939 --> 00:08:03,439

the man between us that's the more




146

00:08:03,639 --> 00:08:05,838

favorable job rather than we're doing




147

00:08:06,038 --> 00:08:07,910

work with this guy in your back I love




148

00:08:08,110 --> 00:08:09,829

wearing this guy but it just makes it




149

00:08:10,028 --> 00:08:12,619

hard to do work and so that is the job




150

00:08:12,819 --> 00:08:14,509

that both of us wanted she's doing it




151

00:08:14,709 --> 00:08:17,749

with that that was fun but I ran out of




172

00:09:03,490 --> 00:09:06,229

camera battery I've carefully burned




173

00:09:06,429 --> 00:09:08,179

around my apple trees not right next to




174

00:09:08,379 --> 00:09:13,688

him hey how's mowing going good Wow




175

00:09:13,889 --> 00:09:16,758

inside this box or fence post pick tail




176

00:09:16,958 --> 00:09:19,188

fence post for rotational grazing we've




177

00:09:19,389 --> 00:09:21,559

been wanting to actually rotationally




178

00:09:21,759 --> 00:09:24,289

graze our pasture forever and we're just




179

00:09:24,490 --> 00:09:25,519

now getting the equipment where it's




180

00:09:25,720 --> 00:09:29,129

actually feasible to do it




181

00:09:42,698 --> 00:09:44,459

well folks it's 5:30




182

00:09:44,659 --> 00:09:46,969

I didn't get done everything on my list




183

00:09:47,169 --> 00:09:49,618

actually I was hoping to rototiller the




184

00:09:49,818 --> 00:09:51,659

garden today but there was a lot of goat




185

00:09:51,860 --> 00:09:53,308

chasing you didn't see unfortunately I




186

00:09:53,509 --> 00:09:55,139

fixed that there was a hole in the fence




187

00:09:55,339 --> 00:09:57,238

basically where the buck was squeezing




188

00:09:57,438 --> 00:09:59,368

out through the fence and he got out I




189

00:09:59,568 --> 00:10:02,248

think four times he took one bite off a




190

00:10:02,448 --> 00:10:07,919

cherry tree buck this has been another




191

00:10:08,120 --> 00:10:11,188

great day on the homestead I'll see you




192

00:10:11,389 --> 00:10:12,839

set sure it actually looks sharper than




196

00:10:18,799 --> 00:10:20,698

that because this in white now and that




197

00:10:20,899 --> 00:10:24,188

starting now the boys are fertilizing




5

00:00:18,118 --> 00:00:20,409

these greens with fish fertilizer and




6

00:00:20,609 --> 00:00:22,210

they're just pouring it down each line




7

00:00:22,410 --> 00:00:24,159

with a pretty concentrated fish




8

00:00:24,359 --> 00:00:26,169

fertilizer and then we'll water this bed




9

00:00:26,368 --> 00:00:30,589

when we're done pull out those plants




10

00:00:31,989 --> 00:00:52,498

not in the newer




13

00:00:57,869 --> 00:01:00,498

and then just make sure that if you have




14

00:01:00,698 --> 00:01:01,849

locked the brakes make sure they get to




15

00:01:02,049 --> 00:01:03,419

spread out




16

00:01:03,619 --> 00:01:06,119

18

00:01:10,219 --> 00:01:12,750

mastitis so I've got these four jars to




25

00:01:24,890 --> 00:01:27,569

her left front and her right front now




29

00:01:52,759 --> 00:01:53,969

we'll just finish smoking out her




30

00:01:54,170 --> 00:01:54,939

backside




31

00:01:55,140 --> 00:02:03,540

[Music]




32

00:02:17,360 --> 00:02:25,810

[Music]




33

00:02:29,889 --> 00:02:46,920

more raspberry plants came in to mail we




34

00:02:47,120 --> 00:02:50,300

have four Triple Crowns blackberries




35

00:02:50,500 --> 00:02:55,140

three black Jim blackberries I can't




36

00:02:55,340 --> 00:02:57,989

pronounce these we watch cheetah




37

00:02:58,188 --> 00:03:02,969

blackberries six double gold raspberries




38

00:03:03,169 --> 00:03:07,230

and four characters these plants we will




39

00:03:07,430 --> 00:03:08,700

not be planting today they have to be




40

00:03:08,900 --> 00:03:10,980

hardened off which means introduced




41

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:12,509

slowly to direct sunlight they've




42

00:03:12,709 --> 00:03:14,129

probably been grown in a greenhouse or




43

00:03:14,329 --> 00:03:16,289

under State cloth and you can kill them




44

00:03:16,489 --> 00:03:17,310

if you just put them straight out in the




45

00:03:17,509 --> 00:03:19,050

Sun so we'll let them get about two or




46

00:03:19,250 --> 00:03:21,269

three hours of Sun today and each day




47

00:03:21,468 --> 00:03:24,118

for the next couple days and then we'll




48

00:03:24,318 --> 00:03:25,980

plan them out next it's time for a quick




49

00:03:26,180 --> 00:03:27,989

herbal orientation for this guy who




50

00:03:28,188 --> 00:03:30,330

might be sent to run herb errands for




51

00:03:30,530 --> 00:03:33,149

cooking so you know green onions right




52

00:03:33,348 --> 00:03:36,659

pay attention now okay ready cilantro




53

00:03:36,859 --> 00:03:38,789

this one's dill if she wants to do




54

00:03:38,989 --> 00:03:40,368

that's what she wants this is chives




55

00:03:40,568 --> 00:03:42,539

it's kind of like onions but it's like




56

00:03:42,739 --> 00:03:45,929

tiny in this oregano this is called




57

00:03:46,128 --> 00:03:49,890

oregano this is called time this one is




58

00:03:50,090 --> 00:03:54,439

called sage this one is summer savory




59

00:03:54,639 --> 00:03:56,939

she wanted oregano when we send you out




60

00:03:57,139 --> 00:03:59,759

to get herbs take scissors and just clip




61

00:03:59,959 --> 00:04:01,020

off little pieces like that




62

00:04:01,219 --> 00:04:08,279

okay we're using this portable somatic




63

00:04:08,479 --> 00:04:11,129

cell count kit to detect subclinical




64

00:04:11,329 --> 00:04:12,779

mastitis now I didn't tell you why we're




65

00:04:12,979 --> 00:04:15,719

doing this we're doing this because when




66

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,718

we got Alice the milk cow her milk at




67

00:04:18,918 --> 00:04:22,110

least from back quarters tasted salty




68

00:04:22,310 --> 00:04:24,600

salty tasting milk can be a sign of




69

00:04:24,800 --> 00:04:26,699

mastitis we've also been reading about




70

00:04:26,899 --> 00:04:29,040

it and there's a lot of other possible




71

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:30,449

reasons there's actually a ton of people




72

00:04:30,649 --> 00:04:33,019

right now on all the online cow boards




73

00:04:33,218 --> 00:04:35,189

posting about their salty tasting milk




74

00:04:35,389 --> 00:04:37,110

we're gonna do this test though this may




75

00:04:37,310 --> 00:04:39,809

help us know if she actually




76

00:04:40,009 --> 00:04:41,910

besides the concern would be that she




77

00:04:42,110 --> 00:04:43,588

might be like in an early stage of




78

00:04:43,788 --> 00:04:47,100

mastitis she actually her milk looks




79

00:04:47,300 --> 00:04:50,519

great and her udder looks fine so a lot




80

00:04:50,718 --> 00:04:53,429

is reassuring and we're gonna refer back




81

00:04:53,629 --> 00:04:55,709

to our instructions that Wilders eating




82

00:04:55,908 --> 00:04:59,968

four drops in milk okay we're okay no we




83

00:05:00,168 --> 00:05:02,549

only need four drops of milk on each one




84

00:05:02,749 --> 00:05:07,169

of these three four we're gonna rinse




85

00:05:07,369 --> 00:05:09,629

that out and then four drops of




86

00:05:09,829 --> 00:05:13,829

developer on each trip we've got to wait




87

00:05:14,028 --> 00:05:15,359

five minutes so while we're waiting I'm




88

00:05:15,559 --> 00:05:17,489

gonna taste all these milks I'm just




89

00:05:17,689 --> 00:05:31,170

tasting the left-back salty you're right




90

00:05:31,370 --> 00:05:34,538

back tastes really good to me




91

00:05:34,749 --> 00:05:37,649

right front tastes good left front




92

00:05:37,848 --> 00:05:38,879

tastes good they all taste good at the




93

00:05:39,079 --> 00:05:40,439

left back though tastes bad here's the




94

00:05:40,639 --> 00:05:43,139

test results left front is white right




95

00:05:43,338 --> 00:05:47,218

front right back and then here is the




96

00:05:47,418 --> 00:05:49,679

left back and what we're supposed to do




97

00:05:49,879 --> 00:05:52,649

is compare the color to this test strip




98

00:05:52,848 --> 00:05:54,569

honestly it's closest to this one which




99

00:05:54,769 --> 00:06:02,639

is 1500 cells times a thousand from Noli




100

00:06:02,838 --> 00:06:04,379

so it looks like she may have mastitis




101

00:06:04,579 --> 00:06:06,899

in her left back quarter this too this




102

00:06:07,098 --> 00:06:08,670

isn't a definitive diagnostic test




103

00:06:08,870 --> 00:06:10,468

format size but it looks like she




104

00:06:10,668 --> 00:06:14,189

probably does so we have some learning




105

00:06:14,389 --> 00:06:16,528

to do about treating mastitis we're




106

00:06:16,728 --> 00:06:18,059

doing everything right now we're milking




107

00:06:18,259 --> 00:06:19,920

her out in that back left quarter




108

00:06:20,120 --> 00:06:22,559

especially and her milk actually looks




109

00:06:22,759 --> 00:06:24,329

good it's not really it's not chunky or




110

00:06:24,528 --> 00:06:27,430

gloppy or anything




111

00:06:29,060 --> 00:06:31,960

this is by far my least favorite thing




112

00:06:32,160 --> 00:06:34,360

that we do around here I'm gonna dis bud




113

00:06:34,560 --> 00:06:37,449

all the goats there's a lot of reasons




114

00:06:37,649 --> 00:06:41,430

we do this I do think that it's not




115

00:06:41,629 --> 00:06:43,509

necessary if you're planning on keeping




116

00:06:43,709 --> 00:06:46,420

a goat but most people buying goats




117

00:06:46,620 --> 00:06:49,540

expect it and it would be a big turn-off




118

00:06:49,740 --> 00:06:52,000

to many people but we're going to knock




119

00:06:52,199 --> 00:06:53,590

it out really quick and let these babies




120

00:06:53,790 --> 00:06:57,830

go back to their mum




121

00:07:01,589 --> 00:07:03,559

all right you're done let's get you back




122

00:07:03,759 --> 00:07:07,520

to mommy now it's lucky to Luckys turn




123

00:07:07,720 --> 00:07:09,910

poor little lady sorry girl




124

00:07:10,110 --> 00:07:12,910

and that was Molly's turn sorry lady




125

00:07:13,110 --> 00:07:18,079

alright she's done these babies they're




126

00:07:18,279 --> 00:07:19,278

not gonna probably let me get close




127

00:07:19,478 --> 00:07:21,468

they're gonna say we remember what you




128

00:07:21,668 --> 00:07:23,960

just did to us hey guys




129

00:07:24,160 --> 00:07:28,929

a little burnt heads you guys are cute




130

00:07:29,129 --> 00:07:31,939

and that should be the lastest Budig I




131

00:07:32,139 --> 00:07:35,689

have to do this year she that calf is




132

00:07:35,889 --> 00:07:37,850

polled and we don't have a name for yet




133

00:07:38,050 --> 00:07:40,338

that calf and this guy you can see his




134

00:07:40,538 --> 00:07:42,290

horns I'm gonna let his horns grow




135

00:07:42,490 --> 00:07:44,959

though I'll tell you why because he's




136

00:07:45,158 --> 00:07:46,730

gonna be beefed within a year he's a




137

00:07:46,930 --> 00:07:48,350

good size two month old calf he's gonna




138

00:07:48,550 --> 00:07:50,540

be beefed within a year we're not we




139

00:07:50,740 --> 00:07:53,149

don't have to sell him yeah I just don't




140

00:07:53,348 --> 00:07:54,588

think it's gonna be a problem so he'll




141

00:07:54,788 --> 00:07:56,329

have some little horns by the time we




142

00:07:56,528 --> 00:07:57,739

eat but Sherman you can probably hear




143

00:07:57,939 --> 00:07:59,359

Breanna is mowing down here and you




144

00:07:59,559 --> 00:08:00,739

might say why aren't you mowing you're




145

00:08:00,939 --> 00:08:03,439

the man between us that's the more




146

00:08:03,639 --> 00:08:05,838

favorable job rather than we're doing




147

00:08:06,038 --> 00:08:07,910

work with this guy in your back I love




148

00:08:08,110 --> 00:08:09,829

wearing this guy but it just makes it




149

00:08:10,028 --> 00:08:12,619

hard to do work and so that is the job




150

00:08:12,819 --> 00:08:14,509

that both of us wanted she's doing it




151

00:08:14,709 --> 00:08:17,749

171

00:09:00,519 --> 00:09:03,289

with that that was fun but I ran out of




172

00:09:03,490 --> 00:09:06,229

camera battery I've carefully burned




173

00:09:06,429 --> 00:09:08,179

around my apple trees not right next to




174

00:09:08,379 --> 00:09:13,688

him hey how's mowing going good Wow




175

00:09:13,889 --> 00:09:16,758

inside this box or fence post pick tail




176

00:09:16,958 --> 00:09:19,188

fence post for rotational grazing we've




177

00:09:19,389 --> 00:09:21,559

been wanting to actually rotationally




178

00:09:21,759 --> 00:09:24,289

graze our pasture forever and we're just




179

00:09:24,490 --> 00:09:25,519

now getting the equipment where it's




180

00:09:25,720 --> 00:09:29,129

actually feasible to do it




181

00:09:42,698 --> 00:09:44,459

well folks it's 5:30




182

00:09:44,659 --> 00:09:46,969

I didn't get done everything on my list




183

00:09:47,169 --> 00:09:49,618

actually I was hoping to rototiller the




184

00:09:49,818 --> 00:09:51,659

garden today but there was a lot of goat




185

00:09:51,860 --> 00:09:53,308

chasing you didn't see unfortunately I




186

00:09:53,509 --> 00:09:55,139

fixed that there was a hole in the fence




187

00:09:55,339 --> 00:09:57,238

basically where the buck was squeezing




188

00:09:57,438 --> 00:09:59,368

out through the fence and he got out I




189

00:09:59,568 --> 00:10:02,248

think four times he took one bite off a




190

00:10:02,448 --> 00:10:07,919

cherry tree buck this has been another




191

00:10:08,120 --> 00:10:11,188

great day on the homestead I'll see you




192

00:10:11,389 --> 00:10:12,839

in another video yeah just go go go




193

00:10:13,039 --> 00:10:15,299

around here sweet homestead sir yeah




194

00:10:15,500 --> 00:10:16,738

don't forget to get your home sweet home




195

00:10:16,938 --> 00:10:18,599

set sure it actually looks sharper than




196

00:10:18,799 --> 00:10:20,698

that because this in white now and that




197

00:10:20,899 --> 00:10:24,188

white just pops up all the colors




198

00:00:22,269 --> 00:00:23,629

than a bunch of Jersey cabs I've never




4

00:00:23,829 --> 00:00:25,309

seen them like this until the other day

00:00:25,509 --> 00:00:27,629

we gotta kick these goats out of the




11

00:01:32,200 --> 00:01:34,789

barn because we're gonna put cows in




12

00:01:34,989 --> 00:01:37,319

here




13

00:01:40,079 --> 00:02:05,829

come on lady yes the goats from the




14

00:02:06,030 --> 00:02:10,819

other side of this gate in there




15

00:02:17,900 --> 00:02:25,120

everyone's okay we got our New Jersey




16

00:02:25,319 --> 00:02:29,950

cow pick her up today as you saw in the




17

00:02:30,150 --> 00:02:33,610

video her name she comes with his




18

00:02:33,810 --> 00:02:38,800

Wallace and this is a little heifer calf




19

00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:41,890

over on this side and then we decided to




20

00:02:42,090 --> 00:02:46,210

go ahead and get this steer and bring




21

00:02:46,409 --> 00:02:46,840

him along




22

00:02:47,039 --> 00:02:50,469

this is not her calf but our plan is to




23

00:02:50,669 --> 00:02:53,439

get him to nurse on her




24

00:02:53,639 --> 00:02:56,830

so both calves will be on her it's a




25

00:02:57,030 --> 00:02:58,689

little bit of a challenge but we've been




26

00:02:58,889 --> 00:02:59,980

going back and forth and trying to




27

00:03:00,180 --> 00:03:02,020

decide we pretty much decided against it




28

00:03:02,219 --> 00:03:03,400

and then we said you know what let's do




29

00:03:03,599 --> 00:03:09,889

it and so we brought him along as well




30

00:03:12,430 --> 00:03:14,610

cows always get dirty in trailers




31

00:03:14,810 --> 00:03:16,980

because they poop all over and rub up




32

00:03:17,180 --> 00:03:25,260

against the sides we're just letting




33

00:03:25,460 --> 00:03:27,719

them kind of chill out down here get




34

00:03:27,919 --> 00:03:28,920

used to being in here we'll leave them




35

00:03:29,120 --> 00:03:34,410

in the barn at least until tomorrow to




36

00:03:34,610 --> 00:03:35,969

kind of get used to being here and calm




37

00:03:36,169 --> 00:03:37,680

down before we let him out in the fence




38

00:03:37,879 --> 00:03:42,140

we also want to keep this calf the steer




39

00:03:42,340 --> 00:03:45,840

real close to her we got to watch this




40

00:03:46,039 --> 00:03:49,680

process very closely and may need to get




41

00:03:49,879 --> 00:03:52,080

real hands-on in it and getting him to




42

00:03:52,280 --> 00:03:54,270

nurse on her the question is not will he




43

00:03:54,469 --> 00:03:56,280

nurse on her of course he will the




44

00:03:56,479 --> 00:04:01,590

question is will she let him nurse we




45

00:04:01,789 --> 00:04:03,689

already actually saw him in the trailer




46

00:04:03,889 --> 00:04:05,790

nurse a little bit which is that's




47

00:04:05,990 --> 00:04:08,630

encouraging and she didn't pick him off




48

00:04:08,830 --> 00:04:11,520

sometimes it's hard to get cast in her




49

00:04:11,719 --> 00:04:13,439

son different moments but we already




50

00:04:13,639 --> 00:04:16,139

knew that this calf kind of tried to




51

00:04:16,339 --> 00:04:18,509

nurse on every moment around so we knew




52

00:04:18,709 --> 00:04:22,120

that that was gonna be the problem




53

00:04:25,620 --> 00:04:28,110

how does that feel having a cow again




54

00:04:28,310 --> 00:04:35,500

right good I do think that learning the




55

00:04:35,699 --> 00:04:38,350

new routine with new animals you know it




56

00:04:38,550 --> 00:04:40,990

stresses the animals to be moved but it




57

00:04:41,189 --> 00:04:43,300

also stresses the new animals you know




58

00:04:43,500 --> 00:04:45,370

that have to get used to new creatures




59

00:04:45,569 --> 00:04:47,230

and then it stresses us not nearly as




60

00:04:47,430 --> 00:04:50,079

much but you know just takes time to




61

00:04:50,279 --> 00:04:53,199

learn the new routine but I'm really




62

00:04:53,399 --> 00:04:56,439

excited I just feel so blessed that we




63

00:04:56,639 --> 00:05:09,610

found a grass-fed Jersey so close it was




64

00:05:09,810 --> 00:05:11,889

basically a year ago that her last milk




65

00:05:12,089 --> 00:05:15,278

cow died and we've been looking forward




66

00:05:15,478 --> 00:05:17,860

to this day people asked us over and




67

00:05:18,060 --> 00:05:18,968

over when you're gonna get a milk cow




68

00:05:19,168 --> 00:05:21,460

and we always we never were impatient




69

00:05:21,660 --> 00:05:23,079

for the day to come but I do feel like




70

00:05:23,279 --> 00:05:25,360

this is the right cow at the right time




71

00:05:25,560 --> 00:05:30,730

for us I feel like in some ways we know




72

00:05:30,930 --> 00:05:32,410

a lot more than you then in some ways we




73

00:05:32,610 --> 00:05:34,000

still have so much to learn about cows




74

00:05:34,199 --> 00:05:36,550

and it's intimidating honestly just not




75

00:05:36,750 --> 00:05:39,009

not keeping a cow but as health problems




76

00:05:39,209 --> 00:05:42,218

arise this intimidating but I'm pretty




77

00:05:42,418 --> 00:05:45,870

confident that we're going into it as




78

00:05:46,069 --> 00:05:49,028

just with them in many ways the kind of




79

00:05:49,228 --> 00:05:51,639

a better footing in I wouldn't say a




80

00:05:51,839 --> 00:05:53,079

better footing in animal care but kind




81

00:05:53,279 --> 00:05:54,370

of in where we're at in our lives right




82

00:05:54,569 --> 00:05:58,240

now to just do a really fine job with




83

00:05:58,439 --> 00:06:04,629

this cow it is Alice we wanted to keep




84

00:06:04,829 --> 00:06:07,930

it similar but I really I don't like




85

00:06:08,129 --> 00:06:09,819

changing animals names but in this




86

00:06:10,019 --> 00:06:18,850

instance I really wanted to so folks




87

00:06:19,050 --> 00:06:19,900

88

00:06:20,100 --> 00:06:24,189

how things are going very soon as we




89

00:06:24,389 --> 00:06:27,009

start milking and how the steer calf is




90

00:06:27,209 --> 00:06:28,410

taking too




91

00:06:28,610 --> 00:06:33,689

this is the miracle of a cow choosing to




2

00:00:02,669 --> 00:00:04,459

adopt a calf that's not her own




3

00:00:04,660 --> 00:00:36,929

[Music]




4

00:00:42,119 --> 00:00:43,869

when we got her cow the other day we




5

00:00:44,070 --> 00:00:47,320

made a bold and possibly stupid decision




6

00:00:47,520 --> 00:00:50,500

this was the decision we got a steer




7

00:00:50,700 --> 00:00:54,070

calf that didn't belong to Alice the cow




8

00:00:54,270 --> 00:00:58,520

that we bought we just brought him along




9

00:01:10,328 --> 00:01:14,219

this kind of change is very stressful on




10

00:01:14,420 --> 00:01:18,088

cows and not all mother cows will take




11

00:01:18,289 --> 00:01:20,308

on an extra calf to nurse well why did




12

00:01:20,509 --> 00:01:24,238

we do it we did it because in our whole




13

00:01:24,438 --> 00:01:26,368

home city experience the number one




14

00:01:26,569 --> 00:01:30,558

thing that was productive and




15

00:01:30,759 --> 00:01:33,149

cost-effective that we've done was




16

00:01:33,349 --> 00:01:34,890

raising a steer for beef




17

00:01:35,090 --> 00:01:36,778

we raised brownie out we raised him on




18

00:01:36,978 --> 00:01:39,899

grass and about four or five bales of




19

00:01:40,099 --> 00:01:44,250

hay and it was an incredible value and a




20

00:01:44,450 --> 00:01:47,909

huge amount of production from our small




21

00:01:48,109 --> 00:01:50,649

piece of land




22

00:01:58,159 --> 00:02:00,988

we went back and forth actually the days




23

00:02:01,188 --> 00:02:03,448

before we got the cow and we had decided




24

00:02:03,649 --> 00:02:05,789

completely against getting the steer we




25

00:02:05,989 --> 00:02:08,939

said you know it's just too risky we're




26

00:02:09,139 --> 00:02:11,640

new at this the cow would be under




27

00:02:11,840 --> 00:02:13,830

stress moving into a new environment the




28

00:02:14,030 --> 00:02:15,960

calf would be under stress we don't




29

00:02:16,159 --> 00:02:17,399

really know what we're doing it can be




30

00:02:17,598 --> 00:02:20,640

very involved you know some people have




31

00:02:20,840 --> 00:02:24,030

to restrain the cow and actually




32

00:02:24,229 --> 00:02:26,130

physically put the calf on the cow some




33

00:02:26,330 --> 00:02:28,649

people use scent cover up see cows don't




34

00:02:28,848 --> 00:02:30,599

really want to just take on any random




35

00:02:30,799 --> 00:02:32,939

calf they're they're linked together




36

00:02:33,139 --> 00:02:36,719

with sound with smell with touch and




37

00:02:36,919 --> 00:02:39,330

they'll only nurse their own calf




38

00:02:39,530 --> 00:02:42,219

normally




39

00:02:52,568 --> 00:02:54,810

then at the last minute we decided you




40

00:02:55,009 --> 00:02:56,730

know what we really are gonna go for




41

00:02:56,930 --> 00:02:58,770

this we're gonna do it we got this deer




42

00:02:58,969 --> 00:03:00,420

we brought him home we were kind of




43

00:03:00,620 --> 00:03:02,368

worried worried that it was just gonna




44

00:03:02,568 --> 00:03:05,790

be a disaster because worst case is the




45

00:03:05,990 --> 00:03:09,300

calf doesn't nurse and get sick and dies




46

00:03:09,500 --> 00:03:13,920

or we spend a whole week just fighting




47

00:03:14,120 --> 00:03:17,100

it and fighting it fighting and end up




48

00:03:17,300 --> 00:03:20,469

bottle feeding the calf




49

00:03:23,169 --> 00:03:26,969

we got the calf back into the barn we




50

00:03:27,169 --> 00:03:30,330

got the cow in the calf and the plan was




51

00:03:30,530 --> 00:03:32,100

initially just to watch and keep them




52

00:03:32,300 --> 00:03:34,710

very close but then I realized I can't




53

00:03:34,909 --> 00:03:37,740

sit and watch them all the time and I




54

00:03:37,939 --> 00:03:39,930

won't even know if he's nursing so I




55

00:03:40,129 --> 00:03:42,150

locked him up for about three or four




56

00:03:42,349 --> 00:03:44,939

hours and then I came back that first




57

00:03:45,139 --> 00:03:48,900

evening and I let him out and he walked




58

00:03:49,099 --> 00:03:52,740

out and he tried to nurse and she kicked




59

00:03:52,939 --> 00:03:54,689

him in the head and I thought oh gosh




60

00:03:54,889 --> 00:03:56,879

here we go and he tried to nurse again




61

00:03:57,079 --> 00:03:59,280

and she butted him off and I was just




62

00:03:59,479 --> 00:04:01,170

thinking we're we're in for it this is




63

00:04:01,370 --> 00:04:05,920

going to be such a hassle




64

00:04:16,750 --> 00:04:20,210

and then




65

00:04:20,410 --> 00:04:23,300

he didn't give up he tried to nurse




66

00:04:23,500 --> 00:04:26,930

again and she didn't do anything




67

00:04:27,129 --> 00:04:31,100

and I sat there for about ten minutes




68

00:04:31,300 --> 00:04:35,600

and just watched him nurse on his new




69

00:04:35,800 --> 00:04:40,670

mama I think that she realized that his




70

00:04:40,870 --> 00:04:43,129

mom wasn't there maybe I'm reading too




71

00:04:43,329 --> 00:04:45,230

much into it but I really think that's




72

00:04:45,430 --> 00:04:47,569

what happened he was bellowing he was




73

00:04:47,769 --> 00:04:49,340

hungry and she just something clicked in




74

00:04:49,540 --> 00:04:51,439

her head and she just let him so from




75

00:04:51,639 --> 00:04:53,560

that moment on he's been nursing




76

00:04:53,759 --> 00:04:57,400

perfectly it's kind of the miracle of a




77

00:04:57,600 --> 00:05:03,450

cow choosing to adopt a calf




78

00:05:03,579 --> 00:05:10,430

[Music]




79

00:05:10,629 --> 00:05:13,129

we thought might be just the disaster




80

00:05:13,329 --> 00:05:17,000

turned out in this case to be really




81

00:05:17,199 --> 00:05:19,790

easy for us we're so thankful for that




82

00:05:19,990 --> 00:05:21,770

and thankful that with our first




83

00:05:21,970 --> 00:05:24,470

experience of grafting a calf onto a




84

00:05:24,670 --> 00:05:28,530

mama cow that it went really well




85

00:05:54,740 --> 00:05:59,449

it's happening right now you can see it




86

00:05:59,649 --> 00:06:02,550

little beefsteak is nursing away




87

00:06:02,750 --> 00:06:06,240

greedily and mama Alice is standing




88

00:06:06,439 --> 00:06:09,389

perfectly still calm she's not kicking




89

00:06:09,589 --> 00:06:11,160

she's not butting him she's not




90

00:06:11,360 --> 00:06:13,470

objecting him she's not objecting to him




91

00:06:13,670 --> 00:06:16,290

nursing she's letting him nurse letting




92

00:06:16,490 --> 00:06:21,639

him feed and now they're both doing it




93

00:06:32,949 --> 00:06:37,910

we just feel so blessed with this cow




94

00:06:38,110 --> 00:06:41,910

for a couple reasons and not least among




95

00:06:42,110 --> 00:06:49,079

them is this that apparently she's a




96

00:06:49,279 --> 00:06:53,939

great nurse count because we didn't have




97

00:06:54,139 --> 00:06:55,620

to do anything to make this happen




98

00:06:55,819 --> 00:06:58,050

literally nothing we put him together in




99

00:06:58,250 --> 00:07:03,329

the barn and within just a few hours he




100

00:07:03,529 --> 00:07:06,400

was nursing and she had accepted them




101

00:07:06,600 --> 00:07:09,468

that we bought we just brought him along




9

00:01:10,328 --> 00:01:14,219

this kind of change is very stressful on

we do it we did it because in our whole

home city experience the number one




14

00:01:26,569 --> 00:01:30,558

thing that was productive and

grass and about four or five bales of




19

00:01:40,099 --> 00:01:44,250

hay and it was an incredible value and a




20

00:01:44,450 --> 00:01:47,909

huge amount of production from our small




21

00:01:48,109 --> 00:01:50,649

piece of land

00:01:58,159 --> 00:02:00,988

26

00:02:09,139 --> 00:02:11,640

new at this the cow would be under




27

00:02:11,840 --> 00:02:13,830

stress moving into a new environment the




28

00:02:14,030 --> 00:02:15,960

calf would be under stress we don't




29

00:02:16,159 --> 00:02:17,399

really know what we're doing it can be




30

00:02:17,598 --> 00:02:20,640

very involved you know some people have




31

00:02:20,840 --> 00:02:24,030

to restrain the cow and actually




32

00:02:24,229 --> 00:02:26,130

physically put the calf on the cow some




33

00:02:26,330 --> 00:02:28,649

people use scent cover up see cows don't




34

00:02:28,848 --> 00:02:30,599

really want to just take on any random




35

00:02:30,799 --> 00:02:32,939

calf they're they're linked together




36

00:02:33,139 --> 00:02:36,719

37

00:02:36,919 --> 00:02:39,330

know what we really are gonna go for




41

00:02:56,930 --> 00:02:58,770

this we're gonna do it we got this deer




42

00:02:58,969 --> 00:03:00,420

we brought him home we were kind of




43

00:03:00,620 --> 00:03:02,368

00:05:17,199 --> 00:05:19,790

easy for us we're so thankful for that




82

00:05:19,990 --> 00:05:21,770

and thankful that with our first




83

00:05:21,970 --> 00:05:24,470

experience of grafting a calf onto a




84

00:05:24,670 --> 00:05:28,530

mama cow that it went really well




85

00:05:54,740 --> 00:05:59,449

it's happening right now you can see it




86

00:05:59,649 --> 00:06:02,550

little beefsteak is nursing away




87

00:06:02,750 --> 00:06:06,240

greedily and mama Alice is standing




88

00:06:06,439 --> 00:06:09,389

perfectly still calm she's not kicking




89

00:06:09,589 --> 00:06:11,160

she's not butting him she's not




90

00:06:11,360 --> 00:06:13,470

objecting him she's not objecting to him




91

00:06:13,670 --> 00:06:16,290

nursing she's letting him nurse letting




92

00:06:16,490 --> 00:06:21,639

him feed and now they're both doing it




93

00:06:32,949 --> 00:06:37,910

we just feel so blessed with this cow




94

00:06:38,110 --> 00:06:41,910

for a couple reasons and not least among




95

00:06:42,110 --> 00:06:49,079

them is this that apparently she's a




96

00:06:49,279 --> 00:06:53,939

great nurse count because we didn't have




97

00:06:54,139 --> 00:06:55,620

to do anything to make this happen




98

00:06:55,819 --> 00:06:58,050

literally nothing we put him together in




99

00:06:58,250 --> 00:07:03,329

the barn and within just a few hours he




100

00:07:03,529 --> 00:07:06,400

was nursing and she had accepted them




101

00:07:06,600 --> 00:07:09,468

folks this has been another great day on




102

00:07:09,668 --> 00:07:10,850

5

00:00:25,969 --> 00:00:28,440

I'm out with the boys in the garden all




6

00:00:28,640 --> 00:00:30,570

the boys little buddies behind you here




7

00:00:30,769 --> 00:00:33,719

we're gonna plant five raspberry plants




8

00:00:33,920 --> 00:00:36,750

I was out here prepping this area to put




9

00:00:36,950 --> 00:00:38,659

in the raspberries digging up the soil




10

00:00:38,859 --> 00:00:41,909

adding a bunch of this partially




11

00:00:42,109 --> 00:00:44,669

composted manure and I found this cool




12

00:00:44,869 --> 00:00:47,369

little elderberry plant here which I




13

00:00:47,570 --> 00:00:50,070

will keep and that came from actually




14

00:00:50,270 --> 00:00:51,839

just burying some chunks of elderberry




15

00:00:52,039 --> 00:00:54,029

root that I dug up from the world these




16

00:00:54,229 --> 00:00:57,769

raspberries came from the Indiana




17

00:00:57,969 --> 00:01:01,559

Berrien plant company these are a




18

00:01:01,759 --> 00:01:05,399

variety called Nantahala and if you're




19

00:01:05,599 --> 00:01:07,049

from around here you'll recognize the




20

00:01:07,250 --> 00:01:09,030

name immediately this variety was




21

00:01:09,230 --> 00:01:15,090

developed by NC State and I bought it




22

00:01:15,290 --> 00:01:17,700

because supposed to taste good and do




23

00:01:17,900 --> 00:01:20,590

well around here




24

00:01:26,019 --> 00:01:30,619

it's okay dude all right that's that




25

00:01:30,819 --> 00:01:35,628

look at these silly cows hey lady




26

00:01:35,828 --> 00:01:43,738

any babies it's been pretty rainy the




27

00:01:43,938 --> 00:01:45,628

past two days which has been nice for




28

00:01:45,828 --> 00:01:48,439

the garden and pasture and everything




29

00:01:48,640 --> 00:01:51,890

the cow has been out in the rain we




30

00:01:52,090 --> 00:01:53,878

would pretty much try to keep her




31

00:01:54,078 --> 00:01:57,599

outside and have generally been happier




32

00:01:57,799 --> 00:02:00,329

overall when we kept the cow that we had




33

00:02:00,530 --> 00:02:03,418

out of the barn she will stay so much




34

00:02:03,618 --> 00:02:07,918

cleaner out here then she will in the




35

00:02:08,118 --> 00:02:08,399

barn




36

00:02:08,598 --> 00:02:13,710

and not only will she stay cleaner which




37

00:02:13,909 --> 00:02:17,099

makes milking cleaning easier keeps your




38

00:02:17,299 --> 00:02:20,939

milk cleaner the barn stays a lot




39

00:02:21,139 --> 00:02:22,710

cleaner too so everything stays cleaner




40

00:02:22,909 --> 00:02:24,599

if she just stays out and and the rain




41

00:02:24,799 --> 00:02:26,910

doesn't hurt her you know if it's storm




42

00:02:27,110 --> 00:02:28,050

and real bad we might let her in the




43

00:02:28,250 --> 00:02:31,819

barn but if I turn my gaze over this way




44

00:02:32,019 --> 00:02:34,140

there's an apple tree that's doing great




45

00:02:34,340 --> 00:02:37,680

but right in here there are two ducks




46

00:02:37,879 --> 00:02:40,680

sitting on duck eggs




47

00:02:40,879 --> 00:02:44,098

[Music]




48

00:02:47,879 --> 00:02:51,049

[Music]




49

00:02:54,169 --> 00:02:57,800

our raspberries are in the ground one




50

00:02:58,000 --> 00:03:01,950

two three four five and then between




51

00:03:02,150 --> 00:03:04,830

this post and that corner up there we'll




52

00:03:05,030 --> 00:03:07,618

put in 13 more plants and I think it's




53

00:03:07,818 --> 00:03:10,140

five different varieties the potatoes




54

00:03:10,340 --> 00:03:11,759

are doing awesome I've started just




55

00:03:11,959 --> 00:03:13,740

mulching them with grass that I cut by




56

00:03:13,939 --> 00:03:15,170

hand from around the edge of the garden




57

00:03:15,370 --> 00:03:18,890

this lettuce looks awesome but it needs




58

00:03:19,090 --> 00:03:20,640

thinning but it's just growing




59

00:03:20,840 --> 00:03:23,550

beautifully this is joyful garden she




60

00:03:23,750 --> 00:03:26,100

needs to do some work on it these peas




61

00:03:26,300 --> 00:03:28,850

along the fence are looking really puny




62

00:03:29,050 --> 00:03:31,950

so last night I cut the grass all along




63

00:03:32,150 --> 00:03:34,259

the fence to try to give him a little




64

00:03:34,459 --> 00:03:37,020

more sunlight and then I fertilized them




65

00:03:37,219 --> 00:03:40,200

this morning with some fish fertilizer




66

00:03:40,400 --> 00:03:42,780

to try to just get them to pop the




67

00:03:42,979 --> 00:03:45,060

asparagus is doing awesome and there's




68

00:03:45,259 --> 00:03:46,950

just a nice thick steak look at this




69

00:03:47,150 --> 00:03:49,770

giant here and then under the feet of




70

00:03:49,969 --> 00:03:53,550

the asparagus there are thousands of




71

00:03:53,750 --> 00:03:57,780

little asparagus plants here all along




72

00:03:57,979 --> 00:04:00,870

so if we let it this whole area here and




73

00:04:01,069 --> 00:04:01,530

here




74

00:04:01,729 --> 00:04:04,289

will turn into a big giant asparagus bed




75

00:04:04,489 --> 00:04:06,840

the rhubarb looks really great and




76

00:04:07,039 --> 00:04:09,450

there's comfrey coming up down here in




77

00:04:09,650 --> 00:04:12,960

the path the strawberry bed looks really




78

00:04:13,159 --> 00:04:15,719

really good and here are onions which




79

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,900

this was my last project is weeding and




80

00:04:19,100 --> 00:04:21,020

mulching this is gonna be my next one




81

00:04:21,220 --> 00:04:23,189

weeding the onions probably mulching




82

00:04:23,389 --> 00:04:25,439

them in some way and here's Chinese




83

00:04:25,639 --> 00:04:28,680

chives which are pretty tasty the garlic




84

00:04:28,879 --> 00:04:33,000

looks good but needs weeding kale the




85

00:04:33,199 --> 00:04:38,670

same beets the same spinach looks pretty




86

00:04:38,870 --> 00:04:43,949

good that is they think radishes green




87

00:04:44,149 --> 00:04:45,689

onions the kids are constantly eating




88

00:04:45,889 --> 00:04:47,278

these you can see all these tops pulled




89

00:04:47,478 --> 00:04:49,939

off that's from children eating them and




90

00:04:50,139 --> 00:04:52,920

cabbage is doing in this tunnel it's




103

00:05:32,250 --> 00:05:34,329

doing awesome and it is not being eaten




104

00:05:34,529 --> 00:05:37,030

by caterpillars at least I saw a little




105

00:05:37,230 --> 00:05:42,370

slug damage on one of them look at this




106

00:05:42,569 --> 00:05:46,150

a lot of weeds but the plants look




107

00:05:46,350 --> 00:05:47,980

awesome and then you're getting they're




108

00:05:48,180 --> 00:05:50,079

big and they're strong really pretty




109

00:05:50,279 --> 00:05:53,410

little plants there this portion of the




110

00:05:53,610 --> 00:05:55,120

garden behind me is almost completely




111

00:05:55,319 --> 00:05:56,680

planted there's a little open real




112

00:05:56,879 --> 00:05:59,079

estate here down at the end there and




113

00:05:59,279 --> 00:06:01,840

then in the ends of those beds but our




114

00:06:02,040 --> 00:06:04,660

early gardens almost totally in next




115

00:06:04,860 --> 00:06:08,860

comes this mess up here this part of the




116

00:06:09,060 --> 00:06:11,770

garden as far as the soil goes is pretty




117

00:06:11,970 --> 00:06:13,449

significantly worse than what's behind




118

00:06:13,649 --> 00:06:16,540

me down here we've put a ton actually




119

00:06:16,740 --> 00:06:19,139

multiple tons honestly literally of




120

00:06:19,339 --> 00:06:23,050

organic manure compost into this lower




121

00:06:23,250 --> 00:06:25,210

portion and just not as much into the




122

00:06:25,410 --> 00:06:27,639

upper portion so we're gonna row to till




123

00:06:27,839 --> 00:06:30,069

this upper portion so that's what's next




124

00:06:30,269 --> 00:06:31,240

in the garden and that's pretty much




125

00:06:31,439 --> 00:06:33,189

wraps up our garden tour let's go see




126

00:06:33,389 --> 00:06:34,730

some baby goats




127

00:06:34,930 --> 00:06:38,050

[Music]




128

00:06:38,250 --> 00:06:41,088

so far this is the most vigorous of all




129

00:06:41,288 --> 00:06:44,480

the apple trees and it's a Liberty all




130

00:06:44,680 --> 00:06:46,759

of these trees are putting on a good




131

00:06:46,959 --> 00:06:52,910

amount of new growth this is a straight




132

00:06:53,110 --> 00:06:56,990

start break star and we're gonna have to




133

00:06:57,189 --> 00:06:59,199

pick these off here but this thing has




134

00:06:59,399 --> 00:07:02,240

probably twenty or thirty little tiny




135

00:07:02,439 --> 00:07:05,778

though apples on yeah that's just a




136

00:07:05,978 --> 00:07:10,550

second year in the ground tree I got




137

00:07:10,750 --> 00:07:15,860

some hay for you do you want it there's




138

00:07:16,060 --> 00:07:18,139

a few stray chickens but we'll let the




139

00:07:18,339 --> 00:07:21,538

majority of these chickens




140

00:07:28,709 --> 00:07:30,579

how are you all doing we all do it




141

00:07:30,779 --> 00:07:32,730

play if I couldn't interest you in some




150

00:08:17,069 --> 00:08:18,999

hey maybe I could interested interest




151

152

00:08:26,728 --> 00:08:28,778

that's why she's making that little bit




153

00:08:28,978 --> 00:08:31,468

of a bellowing film so bad this year




154

00:08:31,668 --> 00:08:33,669

well she doesn't like it so she's




155

00:08:33,870 --> 00:08:37,059

running from me what count does like




156

00:08:37,259 --> 00:08:39,699

157

00:08:39,899 --> 00:08:42,819

spray I did get thumb on her just now so




158

00:08:43,019 --> 00:08:43,929

00:00:25,969 --> 00:00:28,440

I'm out with the boys in the garden all




6

00:00:28,640 --> 00:00:30,570

the boys little buddies behind you here




7

00:00:30,769 --> 00:00:33,719

we're gonna plant five raspberry plants




8

00:00:33,920 --> 00:00:36,750

I was out here prepping this area to put




9

00:00:36,950 --> 00:00:38,659

in the raspberries digging up the soil




10

00:00:38,859 --> 00:00:41,909

adding a bunch of this partially




11

00:00:42,109 --> 00:00:44,669

composted manure and I found this cool




12

00:00:44,869 --> 00:00:47,369

little elderberry plant here which I




13

00:00:47,570 --> 00:00:50,070

will keep and that came from actually




14

00:00:50,270 --> 00:00:51,839

just burying some chunks of elderberry




15

00:00:52,039 --> 00:00:54,029

root that I dug up from the world these




16

00:00:54,229 --> 00:00:57,769

raspberries came from the Indiana




17

00:00:57,969 --> 00:01:01,559

Berrien plant company these are a




18

00:01:01,759 --> 00:01:05,399

variety called Nantahala and if you're




19

00:01:05,599 --> 00:01:07,049

from around here you'll recognize the




20

00:01:07,250 --> 00:01:09,030

name immediately this variety was




21

00:01:09,230 --> 00:01:15,090

developed by NC State and I bought it




22

00:01:15,290 --> 00:01:17,700

because supposed to taste good and do




23

00:01:17,900 --> 00:01:20,590

well around here




24

00:01:26,019 --> 00:01:30,619

it's okay dude all right that's that




25

00:01:30,819 --> 00:01:35,628

look at these silly cows hey lady




26

00:01:35,828 --> 00:01:43,738

any babies it's been pretty rainy the




27

00:01:43,938 --> 00:01:45,628

past two days which has been nice for




28

00:01:45,828 --> 00:01:48,439

the garden and pasture and everything




29

00:01:48,640 --> 00:01:51,890

the cow has been out in the rain we




30

00:01:52,090 --> 00:01:53,878

would pretty much try to keep her




31

00:01:54,078 --> 00:01:57,599

outside and have generally been happier




32

00:01:57,799 --> 00:02:00,329

overall when we kept the cow that we had




33

00:02:00,530 --> 00:02:03,418

out of the barn she will stay so much




34

00:02:03,618 --> 00:02:07,918

cleaner out here then she will in the




35

00:02:08,118 --> 00:02:08,399

barn




36

00:02:08,598 --> 00:02:13,710

and not only will she stay cleaner which




37

00:02:13,909 --> 00:02:17,099

makes milking cleaning easier keeps your




38

00:02:17,299 --> 00:02:20,939

milk cleaner the barn stays a lot




39

00:02:21,139 --> 00:02:22,710

cleaner too so everything stays cleaner




40

00:02:22,909 --> 00:02:24,599

if she just stays out and and the rain




41

00:02:24,799 --> 00:02:26,910

doesn't hurt her you know if it's storm




42

00:02:27,110 --> 00:02:28,050

and real bad we might let her in the




43

00:02:28,250 --> 00:02:31,819

barn but if I turn my gaze over this way




44

00:02:32,019 --> 00:02:34,140

there's an apple tree that's doing great




45

00:02:34,340 --> 00:02:37,680

but right in here there are two ducks




46

00:02:37,879 --> 00:02:40,680

sitting on duck eggs




47

00:02:40,879 --> 00:02:44,098

[Music]




48

00:02:47,879 --> 00:02:51,049

[Music]




49

00:02:54,169 --> 00:02:57,800

our raspberries are in the ground one




50

00:02:58,000 --> 00:03:01,950

two three four five and then between




51

00:03:02,150 --> 00:03:04,830

this post and that corner up there we'll




52

00:03:05,030 --> 00:03:07,618

put in 13 more plants and I think it's




53

00:03:07,818 --> 00:03:10,140

five different varieties the potatoes




54

00:03:10,340 --> 00:03:11,759

are doing awesome I've started just




55

00:03:11,959 --> 00:03:13,740

mulching them with grass that I cut by




56

00:03:13,939 --> 00:03:15,170

hand from around the edge of the garden




57

00:03:15,370 --> 00:03:18,890

this lettuce looks awesome but it needs




58

00:03:19,090 --> 00:03:20,640

thinning but it's just growing




59

00:03:20,840 --> 00:03:23,550

beautifully this is joyful garden she




60

00:03:23,750 --> 00:03:26,100

needs to do some work on it these peas




61

00:03:26,300 --> 00:03:28,850

along the fence are looking really puny




62

00:03:29,050 --> 00:03:31,950

so last night I cut the grass all along




63

00:03:32,150 --> 00:03:34,259

the fence to try to give him a little




64

00:03:34,459 --> 00:03:37,020

more sunlight and then I fertilized them




65

00:03:37,219 --> 00:03:40,200

this morning with some fish fertilizer




66

00:03:40,400 --> 00:03:42,780

to try to just get them to pop the




67

00:03:42,979 --> 00:03:45,060

asparagus is doing awesome and there's




68

00:03:45,259 --> 00:03:46,950

just a nice thick steak look at this




69

00:03:47,150 --> 00:03:49,770

giant here and then under the feet of




70

00:03:49,969 --> 00:03:53,550

the asparagus there are thousands of




71

00:03:53,750 --> 00:03:57,780

little asparagus plants here all along




72

00:03:57,979 --> 00:04:00,870

so if we let it this whole area here and




73

00:04:01,069 --> 00:04:01,530

here




74

00:04:01,729 --> 00:04:04,289

will turn into a big giant asparagus bed




75

00:04:04,489 --> 00:04:06,840

the rhubarb looks really great and




76

00:04:07,039 --> 00:04:09,450

there's comfrey coming up down here in




77

00:04:09,650 --> 00:04:12,960

the path the strawberry bed looks really




78

00:04:13,159 --> 00:04:15,719

really good and here are onions which




79

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,900

this was my last project is weeding and




80

00:04:19,100 --> 00:04:21,020

mulching this is gonna be my next one




81

00:04:21,220 --> 00:04:23,189

weeding the onions probably mulching




82

00:04:23,389 --> 00:04:25,439

them in some way and here's Chinese




83

00:04:25,639 --> 00:04:28,680

chives which are pretty tasty the garlic




84

00:04:28,879 --> 00:04:33,000

looks good but needs weeding kale the




85

00:04:33,199 --> 00:04:38,670

same beets the same spinach looks pretty




86

00:04:38,870 --> 00:04:43,949

good that is they think radishes green




87

00:04:44,149 --> 00:04:45,689

onions the kids are constantly eating




88

00:04:45,889 --> 00:04:47,278

these you can see all these tops pulled




89

00:04:47,478 --> 00:04:49,939

off that's from children eating them and




90

00:04:50,139 --> 00:04:52,920

104

00:05:34,529 --> 00:05:37,030

by caterpillars at least I saw a little




105

00:05:37,230 --> 00:05:42,370

slug damage on one of them look at this




106

00:05:42,569 --> 00:05:46,150

00:05:46,350 --> 00:05:47,980

awesome and then you're getting they're




108

00:05:48,180 --> 00:05:50,079

big and they're strong really pretty




109

00:05:50,279 --> 00:05:53,410

little plants there this portion of the




110

00:05:53,610 --> 00:05:55,120

garden behind me is almost completely




111

00:05:55,319 --> 00:05:56,680

planted there's a little open real




112

00:05:56,879 --> 00:05:59,079

estate here down at the end there and




113

00:05:59,279 --> 00:06:01,840

then in the ends of those beds but our




114

00:06:02,040 --> 00:06:04,660

early gardens almost totally in next




115

00:06:04,860 --> 00:06:08,860

comes this mess up here this part of the




116

00:06:09,060 --> 00:06:11,770

garden as far as the soil goes is pretty




117

00:06:11,970 --> 00:06:13,449

significantly worse than what's behind




118

00:06:13,649 --> 00:06:16,540

me down here we've put a ton actually




119

00:06:16,740 --> 00:06:19,139

multiple tons honestly literally of




120

00:06:19,339 --> 00:06:23,050

organic manure compost into this lower




121

00:06:23,250 --> 00:06:25,210

portion and just not as much into the




122

00:06:25,410 --> 00:06:27,639

upper portion so we're gonna row to till




123

00:06:27,839 --> 00:06:30,069

this upper portion so that's what's next




124

00:06:30,269 --> 00:06:31,240

in the garden and that's pretty much




125

00:06:31,439 --> 00:06:33,189

wraps up our garden tour let's go see

[Music]




128

00:06:38,250 --> 00:06:41,088

so far this is the most vigorous of all




129

00:06:41,288 --> 00:06:44,480

the apple trees and it's a Liberty all




130

00:06:44,680 --> 00:06:46,759

of these trees are putting on a good




131

00:06:46,959 --> 00:06:52,910

amount of new growth this is a straight




132

00:06:53,110 --> 00:06:56,990

start break star and we're gonna have to




133

00:06:57,189 --> 00:06:59,199

pick these off here but this thing has




134

00:06:59,399 --> 00:07:02,240

probably twenty or thirty little tiny




135

00:07:02,439 --> 00:07:05,778
