News on the Farm

Occasional Updates to keep those interested posted. 

May 1, 2020       

      Farmer's market is coming. We are still unclear what will be our platform for the Ronan Market this year.  The steering committee has a much clearer grasp of what is in the works.  It sounds like we will be available for online ordering and our steering committee has just elected a hard working board of directors for the new Co-Op structure of our little Ronan Farmer's Market.  They are busily at work organizing and studying ways to make market work in the COvid-19 times. So we are anxious to see how it will play out.  Oh! By the way, the purpose of our update today is to announce our newest litter is sold and adopted out to new families. It is such a blessing to hear the excitement in the families looking forward to taking home their new furry friends and workers. I LOVE dog people! I love cat people!... I LOVE ANIMAL people...people that are animals...well them too, but animal lovers are awesome people.

       This stay at home business seems to be keeping us busier than ever.  We had a blessed Easter and look forward to getting our seeds in the garden. Is it time yet?  Momma dog appears to have "helped" us with our recently planted potatoes.  She is so opinionated.  Speaking of her, we have taken reservations on her puppies and are still accepting deposits on those that are left. We have six that will be ready May 5th, and two that are ready anytime, though we would really like to keep those two.   Check out Our Dogs' page to see the latest litter.

I know a peace, where there is no peace,

A calm where wild winds blow,

A secret place where face to face

With the Master I may go.

Ralph Spalding Cushman

And so another week passes. Last week we had the boys home so lot's got done...except homework...oops.   This week starts with a mysterious 20 minute windstorm in the middle of the night Saturday night and waking to 4 horses intermingled and reorganized with corral panels in all sorts of disarray.  One ewe trying her hardest to prolapse. I think we stopped that bus, Lord willing.  Then that hopefully allows us to make schoolwork priority is this week.  Right? I hope so.  Anyhow I wanted to list our wool.  Available for sale is raw unwashed fine quality Isle de France and some Merino, full fleeces. We will sell this wool for $10 per pound unwashed, unpicked and uncombed. 

   Okay enough of life, since it is odd, out of the ordinary and for some, very scary right now.  Which brings me to what I feel prompted to share. And following is an article I have been very inspired with these last few weeks. 

"Peace, where is peace---peace for our nations, our homes, and most of all for our hearts and minds?"

This desperate cry has been heard through the ages.  Is it also the cry of your heart?  

People are weary and worried. ( really? with COVID19 that is surprising?)  Without a doubt there is a need for direction and counsel, security and confidence. We need, and want peace of mind. 

Peace of mind---What a treasure!  Can this treasure be found in a world of so much conflict and despair, turmoil and trouble?

The great search is on!  Many people are seeking peace in fame and fortune, in pleasure and power, in education and knowledge, in human relationships and marriage.  They desire to fill their heads with knowledge and their purses with wealth, but their souls remain empty.  Others are seeking to escape the realities of life with drugs or alcohol, but the peace they seek eludes them.  They are still empty and lonely, still in a troubled world with a troubled mind.

God created man and placed him in a beautiful garden to enjoy perfect peace, joy and happiness.  But when Adam and Eve disobeyed, they were at once stricken with guilt.  Where before they had longed for the presence of God, now they hid themselves with shame.  Guilt and fear replaced the peace and happiness they had known.  Man's sin was the beginning of a troubled world.... and a troubled mind. 

Although our soul longs for God, our sinful nature rebels at His ways. This inner struggle causes tension and distress.  When we, like Adam and Eve, are self-centered in our desires and ambitions, we become anxious and fretful. The more we focus on ourselves, the more troubled we become.  The uncertainties of life and the changing, decaying world shake our security and disturb our peace.

Although you may not have recognized or acknowledged it, sin could be the reason for your uneasiness.  Many people search among outward and material things to find peace.  They blame the troubled world  for their troubled mind.  But they fail to look within their own heart. 

There can be no peace until all aspects of life are brought into harmony with the One who made and understands us.  This is only possible by a complete surrender to Christ.  He is not only master of the world, but knows our life from the beginning to the end.  He was thinking of us when He came into the world "to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace" (Luke 1:79)

Jesus offers light for darkness, peace for strife, joy for sorrow, hope for despair and life for death.  He says in St. John 14:27 " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you... let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

When you feel the heavy load of sin weighing you down, the remedy is to "Repent...and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out" (Acts 3:19)

Jesus invites you to this most meaningful, life-changing experience. "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest"  ( Matthew 11:28)

1 John 1:9 promises " If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.:  Will you accept His invitation?

When you come to Jesus, you will find forgiveness and freedom.  Instead of resentment and unforgiveness, your heart is filled with love and mercy.  With Jesus reigning in your heart, you will love your enemies.  This is possible through the power of Christ's refining blood.

As a Christian, faith in God and trust in His care is the antidote for fear and anxiety.  How restful it is to trust in an unchanging God who is from everlasting to everlasting. He loves us and will always care for us.  So why worry and fret?  Learn to do as we read in 1 Peter 5:7 "Casting all your care upon Him; for he careth for you."  we also have the promise, " Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee:  because he trusteth in Thee." (Isaiah 26:3)

With Jesus Christ in your heart, your search for peace is over.  He will give peace and a calm that comes only from trusting Him. You will be able to say with the poet.  I know a peace where there is no peace...

Well it most certainly is spring time again.  We have been admittedly holding our breath as winter never really seemed to show up on our doorstep.  But as it turns out we have a flock of bred ewes ready to lamb soon.  Kittens have blessed us with their arrival in the barns and Hazel has delivered nine beautiful puppies.  So with all the great happenings on the farm we have some offerings for sale.  

-We are accepting reservations for the puppies whom will be ready for their new homes, families and/or flocks in the beginning to middle of May. 

Puppies available to choose from are 

          -  4 white male and one                       badger print male


          -4 badger print female


All are from outstanding guardian parents both of whom are pure Great Pyrenees.  The dew claws will be left intact as Great Pyrenees dew claws are intentionally their and attached by bone and are crucial to their effectiveness in snow country.  Shots and vaccinations will be negotiable but are not as a rule included.  

Next on the agenda is a one year old Merino Winsleydale Cross ram.  We used him one season for our ewes and do not need him again. He is a willing breeder. ;).  His wool is exceptionally beautiful nicely fine and will ad a considerable staple length to your flock.   We would ask $200. for him. 

And as ever we have lamb meat for sale still on the hoof. Very mild exceptional flavor and tenderness.
