Welcome to the farm!
With more fall like temperatures coming our way, working outside is a delight. We've got cover crop in the field lush, beautiful and setting lots of nitrogen in our future growing plots, veggies plants flowering and some producing fruit and the new hens growing well. They are two months old now and we'll be turning them out for their first taste of freedom and free roamers. It's an exciting time. With the cold fronts, I listen and look for the first groups of geese and ducks to arrive. I often hear them before I see them!
We make our own soap at Osth Family Farm. We take the nutrient rich goat milk, mix it with fats and sodium hydroxide (aka lye) and create a creamy, cleansing bar of soap! Free from harsh chemicals of commercial brands, our soap nourishes and hydrates skin, plus it's wonderful for keeping skin problems away.
