This week holds many firsts for Fox Hollow Farm

Dante Valvo, our summer intern, started today and hit the ground running. The farrier came to take Molly and Polly’s shoes off and trim their feet (they were not happy with the process). Today we also took the first batch of chickens to Pleasant Valley Poultry Processing. Taking birds to this business instead of butchering them ourselves will give us more options for when and where to sell them and hopefully save time.

Last, but definitely not least, today Molly and Polly pulled something other than a wagon for the first time. We got out our new Pioneer Homesteader with the cultivator attachment and practiced in preparation for weeding the potatoes. The process required learning and patience from everybody but by the end we were starting to get the hang of it. By the end of the summer we hope to be harvesting potatoes with the horses!
