🛁 🐷🛁 * Tips for a successful MUD BATH, brought to you by Pee Wee, pig bathing guru 🐖 ✨ * 1). Carefully inspect the water. Ensure it’s good and murky. If it’s clean and clear, add snout fulls of dirt👌 * 2). Blow lots of bubbles. Bubbles makes it all swirly and way more fun. Bubbles are key ⭐️ * 3). Dip piggy bod into designated mud wallow/puddle/watering station area 💦 Go nice and slow to be sure you coat all areas of the undercarriage 🤭 * 4). Scratch rump in above mentioned ☝️wallow. This move requires some skill, and not for the faint of heart, but the reward is totally worth it 👍 * 5). Adjust yourself as needed. Don’t worry...no one’s judging 😉 * 6). If time allows, return to flop around, lay for a while and ponder life’s great mysteries🤔 * * * It’s #farmvideofriday hosted by Mel @unconventional_acres and guest host, Kirsten @hostilevalleyliving and I couldn’t resist sharing PW’s sage advice before the long Memorial Day weekend, especially with that smokin’ hot #summerbody 🏝. Make sure to check out all the fun videos today and tag some friends to join in!

Did you know it’s #heritagebreedsweek? 💁‍♀️ It is, and we’re thrilled to work closely with @livestockconservancy, as we love ❤️ our #Arapawa goats and love raising various heritage breed 🐓chickens on our farm! * * Yesterday, we were extremely lucky to have the super-talented Aliza Eliazarov @faunography visit us and photograph 📸 the herd. The 🐐models were slightly confused by what we were doing, but they still nailed it being #ridiculouslygoodlooking 😉✨ Check out my IG stories for some candid shots taken by Aliza and @edwarddoty of all the fun we had ☝️☝️ * * Aliza’s upcoming 📖 #onthemodernfarmbook will feature our Arapawas, and many other goat, poultry, pig, donkey, cattle, horses, sheep, etc. on The Livestock Conservancy’s “Conservation Priority List.” Since there are so few Arapawa in the US and internationally, our goats are considered “critically endangered.” 😳 That’s not ok with me and we need to work harder preserving the past by saving our beloved #heritagebreed animals! * * This year, I’m on the Board of the Arapawa Goat Breeders Association {AGBA} and will be doing my best to raise awareness for the breed! 🙌 To kick it off, I’m donating 10% of all proceeds from the sale of any #BOSS item from our Farm Shirt 👚 👕 collection! So go ahead, SHOP NOW🛒 and use the code HERITAGE for 10% off your entire order!

#Caturday calisthenics 🐱 * * Our morning workout 🏋️‍♂️ before going to the vet for our first well kitty checkup! Doc said Tilly is a sweet little girl with a friendly disposition 💖 and thinks she’s about 8 weeks old. She got her first distemper shot and we’ll return in a month for her booster, plus rabies and testing for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). It’s important to test for those diseases in case we ever wanted to introduce another cat 🐈 into our home/farm, and knowing Tilly’s status will help guide us, especially with any supportive care or newer treatments if needed ✨ * Both are common cat viral 🦠 diseases transmitted in different ways: FeLV is spread through saliva or urine from an infected cat (during grooming, sharing the same bowls or litter box) while FIV is spread when an infected cat bites and uninfected cat. If Tilly tests positive, we will have her retested after 3 months to rule out a false positive (which can happen with any testing) #themoreyouknow ☺️ In the meantime, we’ll continue to enjoy all of her daily #kittyacrobatics! 🤣 * * * #kitten #kittensofinstagram #cutenessoverload #cutekitten #animalsdoingthings #moderncatmag #herekittykitty #cat #fuzzyface #meow #kitty #farmsweetfarm #animalvideos #instagood #onthefarm #cutebabyanimals #tillygreen #sillytilly #saturdayvibes #vetmedicine #furryfriends #rescuecat #adoptdontshop #fureverhome #prettykitty #newburyfarms

✨Always Bee 🐝 Kind✨ * * * Sharing a different #fluffybuttfriday today! 🤗 Kinda bittersweet since I haven’t noticed many bees (or butterflies 🦋) yet this year ☹️. My game plan is to work with a local beekeeper/mentor this season, educate myself on the art of #beekeeping, and get the property ready for hives and a pollinator garden. For now, I’ll just place this little sweetie outside for a well-deserved drink 🌸 🌼🌸🌼🌸 * This weekend I’m determined to get the flower garden installed, and finish off our vegetable/herb 🌿 garden! What plants do you think are “must-haves” for attracting pollinators??🤔 * * * #bees #saveourbees #pollinator #bekind #beelife #backyardbeekeeping #beesofinstagram #beefriendly #beefriendlygarden #pollinatorgarden #savethebees #plantsforpollinators #homestead #organicgardening #organicbuildslife #kellogggarden #homesteadersofamerica #onthefarm #naturephotography #springinthecountry #springblooms #saveourpollinators #newburyfarms

NOTE TO SELF 💁‍♀️: Chickens cannot be trusted as garden 🌿assistants😑 * * I’ve repaired & replaced our garden netting SEVERAL times now. Sookie 🐶 thoroughly enjoys sitting IN my raised beds and smushing all the seedlings planted 😱😩🌱 Rogue chickens then sneak through the ripped openings and strip my plants bare-bones 😭 Bunch of jerks...and yes, I scolded them loudly...like any #crazychickenlady would do 🤦‍♀️ * * So...just to recap: chickens have no boundaries, farm dogs love to smell like compost 💩, and I’m one worn out #farmher after today’s shenanigans. Tomatoes and peppers are FINALLY planted and I’m getting closer to planting my perennial/pollinator garden 🐝 🦋 It’s #womensworkwednesday hosted by @love_and_lavender and I’m trying my best to find balance while I #doallthethings. Spring is a busy, busy season...but I’ll take this any day over those long, winter blahs 🥶 Also sharing one of the garden 🐔assassins for my friend, Janice @rogerscreekfarm for #redwattlewednesday !

JUNGLEFOWL 🌿🐓🌿 * * My chicken 🐔 obsession began in Key West, Florida, when my husband and I honeymooned there and fell in love with the wild chickens roaming the island 🌴 It’s ironic that many years later, I’m staring at my free-range flock and enjoying these 🦖 roam my farm. Did you know that chickens as we know them today are descendants of Gallus gallus, or “red junglefowl” (chicken-like birds). Floppy {pictured here}, Kol and Freddy, my Svarthöna boys, still have those exotic vibes and always choose the woods and thick brush to spend their time digging up goodies for their favorite ladies (swipe ⬅️⬅️ to see Kol and Coco, his main squeeze, searching around for tasty treats 🐛🐜🕷). They’re also recent parents to Svarthona x BCM chicks and I cannot WAIT to see them mature 🖤🧡🖤 * * Got any wild boys to share for this week’s #roosdaytuesday? If so, let’s see those babes today! ❤️🐓❤️ Want to join in? Here are the rules: * 1. FOLLOW me @newburyfarms and post a rooster pic 2. 🏷 TAG @newburyfarms ON your pic and IN your description (make sure to take me so I don’t miss it) 3.

Hold on to your hats, folks 😬🐱 There’s a new girl in town! Meet Tilly 👋 * * Tilly was found in some duct work in a city garage and needed a forever home 🏡 She’s been well cared-for these past few days by a wonderful family and today was the day we welcomed her into our house and hearts 💕 She’s so sweet, playful, curious, and confident. She’s #polydactyl and has a heart-shaped marking on her shoulder! My heart just grew three sizes thanks to this little kitty 🥰 Happy #caturday, friends... * * * #imnewhere #kitten #kittensofinstagram #cutenessoverload #cutekitten #moderncatmag #herekittykitty #cat #fuzzyface #meow #kitty #farmsweetfarm #onthefarm #asimplecountrylife #cutebabyanimals #tillygreen #sillytilly #saturdayvibes #furryfriends #rescuecat #adoptdontshop #fureverhome #prettykitty #newburyfarms

When it comes to #farmmamas, not all broody 🐔 hens are created equal! * Case in point: this lineup. One homicidal chick killer 👿, one that’s never been broody, and one determined to be a mama but a total rookie. None of them will be raising chicks. Danerys (my Buff Orp) and Arya (my mottled Cochin) are the only two I trust wholeheartedly 🤗 * In my experience, hen-raised chicks 🐥 are more independent, self-sufficient, and tend to be hardier and navigate coop dynamics far better than incubated/brooder chicks. However, some broody hens can start out great, then decide to change plans midway and leave eggs or chicks cold and dead 😩😩. Some broodies are murderers and may take out their own chicks, and other’s hatching around them☠️. Some don’t have enough standing in the flock hierarchy and may not protect their babies from nastier, aggressive hens. Sooooo, with all those concerns, who would let broodies raise chicks? 🤷‍♀️ I do, and from past experiences (good & bad), I know my star 🌟 players because they’ve demonstrated their abilities time and time again. —Dedication to sitting, only leaving the nest daily to eat, drink and 💩 —Acting like a psycho if other hens approach the nest 😜 —Not leaving the nest at all during the “lockdown” phase of hatching 🐣 —Once chicks have hatched, keeping them safely close by —Valiantly protecting their brood by any means (verbally telling others to CLUCK OFF or physically pecking or drop-kicking potential offenders) —Bonus points ✨for adopting chicks that aren’t their own * Supervise and care for your broodies during this delicate time 💕. If you don’t want them raising chicks, break them quickly so their health doesn’t suffer. If you’re worried about other hens being aggressive, separate the broody hen and give her a maternity space that’s secure from the flock. You can transition them back into the flock when the chicks are older & stronger with their mama. Cheers to all those amazing #farmmommas out there that go above and beyond to care for their broods! Sharing today for two stellar Farm Mamas, Dennita @the_red_barn_farm and Brittany @camoandfeathers for this week’s #❤️myfarm!! I’m tagging some friends to play too!

PLAYING IN THE DIRT👩‍🌾🐷 * * On the agenda: (besides piggy butt scratches ☺️): PLANTING! 🌱 It’s been so rainy ☔️ and cold this spring, so a lot of planting has been on hold. I’ve been chomping at the bit to get stuff done, and these past few days have been dry, so a few items got crossed off the list 📝! Dahlias are finally in their new bed 🌼🌸🌼 Raspberries & chives {thanks @fdclinton}, asparagus, brassicas, carrots, beets and radishes, some gourds and nasturtium, and potatoes are all done ✅ Netting around & over the blueberry patch (we’ve got free-ranging chickens with no regard for boundaries)🤦‍♀️🐓🌿 * My hands are dirty, my back aches, and this #farmher is totally exhausted, but man it feels good to be in the garden again! 🌱🌱🌱 Fun fact: researchers have found that soil microbes 🦠 affect the brain in a similar fashion as antidepressants! So go out and get dirty; it’s good for your mental health! 💚 * * Sharing this ridiculous selfie 🤳 with my muddy buddy, Dottie, for #iamyourfarmer with @wildrosefarmer 🌞 *

“Excuse me, Miss, can we get another round of daiquiris over here? 🍹🍹🍹You can add it to our tab!” 😎 * * Sun’s out, buns out! ☀️ Sand in our chicken runs has been one of the best investments since I started keeping chickens. It drains well, is easy to clean by raking and sifting, and provides perfect spots for dust bathing 🏝 Freddy and his lovely ladies seem to approve 👍 and are always happy to pose for #roosdaytuesday!

#cantstopwontstop🏃🏼‍♀️ * Fiesty should be this one’s middle name! 😂 First one to hatch late Friday night and sooooo full of personality! Hobbs is totally annoyed by the brace {as you can see in the pic above, she/he has been pecking at it}, but doing such a great job zipping around the brooder! Unfortunately Hobbs has splayed leg. This hatch had issues during lockdown with inconsistent temp 🔥 and humidity 💦. There are some 🐥 with curled toes and Hobbs has splayed legs (spraddle leg). * If caught and treated early, these conditions can be corrected fairly easily. We’re using Vetrap as a brace for Hobbs’ legs to help stabilize and bandaids/vetrap on feet for curled toes. I like Vetrap for bracing since you can adjust the middle strap more easily than using bandaids. Checked a few times daily with some added physical therapy and we should be all good 👍 Anyone else had to treat these issues? 💁‍♀️ Would love to hear what worked for you! * * Sharing for a few tags 🏷: #mondayclucks @lazy_b_acres @callfamilyfarms #mohawkmonday @rustymoosefarm #theyarejustwee @quirkyfarming and @theredshedhomestead * * * #babychicks #chickseason #chick #splayedleg #hatching #hatchaholicsanonymous #chickensaspets #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #fluffybutt #fluffyface #itssofluffy #farmsweetfarm #cutenessoverload #cute #babyanimals #springchicks #justhatched #incubation #vetmedicine #veterinarymedicine #newburyfarms
