Why I’m Thankful

Post Image

We had a lot of rain yesterday, almost 3 inches, which is just about unheard of this time of year around here.  And today it is cold, damp, and windy—one of those days when you’d rather sit inside near the fireplace, drink a cup of coffee, and read a book.  But the pigs needed to […]

Of pygmy goats and learning at Hoosier Heritage Farm…

Post Image

Next to spring on the farm, fair time runs a close second on the “busy” meter.   Hoosier Heritage Farm shows pygmy goats during fair season.  Many people are surprised to learn that you show pygmy goats just like other people show cows, horses or pigs.  In fact, pygmy goats are the smallest livestock in the […]

News stations have been advising that people bring their pets indoors until this cold snap passes in a couple days, and that’s good advice. It is dangerous for animals that are […]

Post Image

Most people may not typically put “barn” and “Christmas” in the same sentence.  But since I was a small child, I always connected the two.  Maybe it was because I was pretty familiar with barns—I spent a lot of time in our barn feeding the cattle, putting down fresh straw for them to sleep on, […]

The cows have arrived!

Post Image

Yesterday I brought home the first of Hoosier Heritage Farm’s cattle herd.  It has been 17 years since this farm has had cattle on it, and I’m glad to see them return.  This is a modest start—we only purchased two in this first batch—but more are coming, and I couldn’t be happier with the quality […]

What a bunch of turkeys

Post Image

I’ve never raised turkeys before.  When I was a kid, we had the obligatory flock of laying hens that supplied us with fresh eggs, and sometimes enough to sell to friends and neighbors.  And Mom would get about 100 chicks each spring and raise them to butcher in the summer to put meat on our […]

Why Hoosier Heritage Farm?

Post Image

Even though I was born and raised on a farm—on this very farm, as a matter of fact—most of my colleagues are surprised when they learn that I’ve taken some time off from my professional career to get Hoosier Heritage Farm up and running.  And that’s understandable—going from business executive to farmer is a pretty […]
