Bent Limb Farm LLC

Welcome to Our Farm!

It's been a great summer here @ Bent Limb Farm. We all, including the animals, have enjoyed the milder temperatures and less humidity. We tried very hard not to complain on the muggy days since the rest were perfect. We humans kept the animals comfortable by moving them regularly and using the trees and portable shelters to help us with shade. Lots of extra water helped also.

Goliath, one of the adult alpaca males, loves to put his front feet in the water buckets. We took one of the large rubber pig bowls and filled it for him so the drinking water was no longer his foot bath! He stood in the water so much that the fiber on his front legs is gone to just below the knee and they look like they belong to a poodle. At least he was cool and happy.

The broiler chickens and turkeys are in the freezer for another year. It's always rewarding to fill the freezers and decrease chores at the same time.

Our piglets weighed 100 pounds at the last check so are well on their way to finishing. We hope to get them to weight by the end of November. If you are interested in pasture-raised pork (not organic but fed only non-GMO feed), please contact us. We are selling them by the quarter, half and whole pig for custom processing. There are only 2 available for sale.The application for retail of the meat by the piece is going to take a few months; we then will get pigs processed at Hiway Meats for USDA inspection and be able to sell cuts of meat including bacon and smoked ham and sausage. This probably will not be available until the next group of piglets finishes sometime next spring.

As the summer winds down, the fiber side of the farm gets busy. Socks, gloves, hats, scarves, felted items are all arriving for the winter season. We will continue to be at the farmers' market in front of St. Joseph's Hospital every Tuesday from 10-4. Store hours will be posted regularly on the website. The new studio/farm store will be completed by the end of October. Classes are scheduled to begin then--stay tuned for details.

As always, we hope to see you at the farm. Pam & Paul
