Last Friday, Thaddeus’ four yearling goats joined us here on the farm. We now have Frank, Jesse, Beau, and Calamity living here — they’re still getting used to things, but that’s fair, because we’re still getting used to them!

They came so quickly, we weren’t really ready to accept them, which is why the barn fencing was rushed through. Luckily, these guys are pretty tame, and they are easy to leash and tie out, so we’re letting them at our blackberries!

Surrounded by tasty blackberries near the northwestern path down to the back 20.

Staked out under the trees next to the garden, enjoying a little shade.

Blackberry devestation after just a few hours. A beautiful sight!
