Finally some wonderful rain! The garden is coming along well. We picked the first cherry tomatoes from the greenhouse. Not enough for the market but coming soon. Also little potatoes, zucchini squash and cucumbers. Taking orders for lamb ready this fall. Have a few ewe lambs if you are looking for breeding stock.
Mr. Ed's Farm is a farm boy's dream come true. I grew up on a diversified central Minnesota dairy farm. In 1985 Gayle and I bought 80 acres on the edge of Minnesota's Mesabi Iron Range. Our farming adventure began with seven sheep, a dozen chickens, a cat and a team of draft horses. The early years were spent cleaning up delapidated buildings and tearing out rusty barb wire. Slowly we transformed the old farm to one with a new life and purpose. We cleared the brush, plowed the fields, planted oats and cut hay. Along the way we added another 80 acres and many more animals to the barnyard.
Today Mr. Ed's Farm is home to a flock of sheep, a herd of goats, a coop full of hens, a gaggle of geese, a pen of pigs and assorted other livestock including percheron draft horses.
Upon retiring from a fulltime job in 2012, I began the process of transitioning Mr. Ed's Farm into an educational as well as a horse powered farm
