Hello everyone! I am starting to feel the pinch of the reality of a new business. Making cheese, selling cheese along with the dairy work and my commitments to serving the industry as well as trying to blog and social media. I sit here on this Sunday evening and remind myself that I can only do what I can do…..
So this will be a short (but I think very sweet) post.
As I was loading up the van with cheese on Thursday to sell, Tony gave me a surprise…Three little piggies! We hated the fact that we were not using the whey from my cheese making to its greatest potential. We could not feed it to the calves easy (some eat too much and get tummy aches). Transporting it to the heifers was a big chore and inconsistent. So Tony built a pen with easy access and we now house the three little pigs! 🙂 Whey has a great source of protein and they love it!
My cousin Diane called it perfectly and posted on Facebook that they are the best… ” eco-friendly garbage disposal” and she is so correct. Really though, that is was dairy and farming is all about…recycling. We reuse and make the most of what we have. I know to many it seems like a trendy thing…but really farmers have been doing this for generations.
I look forward to sharing their progress!
