177-Summer at the Farm

Hello again,

The weather here in Central Illinois has turned to summer. We are grateful for the warmth and the rain. Our garden is producing wonderful vegetables, including the harvest of garlic. Garlic is planted in the fall and harvested early summer. In addition to the curly green scapes we use from the top of the garlic, the fresh bulbs can be used immediately. Most of ours will be cured for winter storage.

As the country opens up, we are planning for more bands at the farm. Upcoming events include Doty and Dexter on July 17 and the Luna Halos on October 9 for our Fall Festival. Mark your calendars, bring a lawn chair and enjoy everything Five Feline Farm has to offer.

Each week the Mercantile will be open from 12:00PM -4:00PM. Come out and browse. For those living within a 15 mile radius of the Farm, delivery service begins on June 12, 2021 on Saturday mornings.

There is always something happening. Keep up on all the current events through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

176-Problem Solving on a Small Farm

Hello again from Five Feline Farm!

As the title of this episode suggests, we have discovered that living on and managing this small farm business requires good problem solving skills. Just this past week, we had a breach of some garden beds by varmints: both ground hogs and raccoons. We will tell you on this episode how we protected those areas.

Plus, you will hear our philosophy about living in harmony with wild animals. Donna even shares a funny story about one of her interactions with a snake.

The Mercantile will be open Friday and Saturday afternoons (12:00 PM – 4:00PM) with the exception of holiday weekends. You can place an order for pickup by visiting the online Mercantile.

We will begin our delivery route on June 12, 2021. If you live within a 15 mile radius of Five Feline Farm you can place an order and we will deliver to your door on Saturday mornings. We also have a waiting list for our Gert’s Garden 2 Go© bags, so let us know if you would like to be on that list.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

174-Karaoke in the Crib Was a Blast!

This week’s episode reviews our most recent weekend at the Farm which featured Karaoke on Saturday afternoon. It was a wonderful time with Kwiksilver Karaoke.

Several people visited the Farm for the first time and many others were return visitors. We appreciate each and every one.

In the episode, we mentioned meeting Rooney’s previous foster mother and a story about Rooney’s adoption day. Here’s the link to the story on Medium:
