We kicked the pigs out of the stalls for the new goat mamas and kiddos. A few shipping pallets and a Mickey D’s billboard tarp later and they think they received a complimentary suite upgrade.

Surprise! The chastity apron for our billy goat didn’t work five months ago. Nature’s plan wins again. Three months early. 🤦‍♂️ #whosnext . . . #babygoats #nubiangoats #rawmilk #supportaustinfarms #regenerativefarming #organicweedcontrol

We’re beginning to realize how pigs-in-a-blanket became a thing. Whomever was the first to successfully wrap a 200lb bundle of hooves and playful energy into a blanket - my hat’s off to you. #pigsinablanket . . . #pasturedpork #animalwelfareadvocate #supportsmallfarms #pasturedpigs #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood

For the last week we’ve been scraping and clearing 10in worth of last year’s stall-compacted “litter” and straw into the compost bin. It’ll sit for over 6 months before we can use the humus to restore and strengthen the soil. #productivefitness . . . #farmfit #composting #compostbin #regenerativefarming #goatpoop #grassfarmer #supportsmallfarms #smallfarmlife

#BigAg and #GloboFarms will continue to co-opt then corrupt the latest green labels that we the good guys use, be it free-range, organic, etc. Is love or kindness next? What can you, the consumer, do about it? #KnowYourFarmer . . #pasturedpork #heritagebreed #organicpork

Yes, that’s a herd of 150+lbs happy pigs keeping up with our car. . Does your pork come from a pig that was allowed to regularly exercise? Did it eat from what was growing from healthy soil? Does it matter to you? #pasturedpork #knowyourfarmer

License and registration? Hmmm smells like treats in here. I’m going to need you to step out of the car and put your hands down where I can nibble. Don’t try any funny business. #GoatState #NubianGoats #GoatLove

I am no more a weed than you an animal. Understand what I have been showing you for centuries. Do I not thrive while the grasses you plant wither under the oppressive Texas sun? Your goats dine on my mineral bouquet. The discerning bovine palate picks carefully from my bounty. If our resilience tips the balance of ‘your ideal’ forages do not blame us; we know only how to heal the soil of your poor management. Bind our leaves for your books. Tomorrow the story changes. #GrassFarming #RegenerativeAgriculture

The 5th rat snake I’ve relocated away from the chicken coops this month. #SorryNeighborLarry Pro tip: catch them while they’re #DoinIt because they’re super relaxed. Just be careful when separating their ‘organs’. . . . #regenerativefarming #naturalfarming #symbiotic #natureconservation

Mom likes to remind me how much I ate during my growing years. She would pull two grocery carts through the aisles - one for the family and the other for me. It was a small town so the butcher and checkout staff could tell that I’d gone to college when she was down to one cart. Now that the farm has graduated to 330lb barrels from 50lb bags I feel her pain and am that much more appreciative. I’m also pretty happy that she justified it out of love and not by judging my carcass weight. I would have surely disappointed at the scales back then.

Our “miniature” bull is unfazed by last night’s epic storm as he muddies his face in preparation of intimidating/taunting the neighbor’s (full-sized) bull. Turn up your sound for the growl at the end. #ItsNotTheSizeOfTheBullInTheFight #ButTheAmountOfMudOnHisFaceThatMatters #AdageRemix

I try to imagine what it’d be like to lay down on top of my food once I’ve stopped gorging. Naked. Then just chew a little more for the heck of it. Because I’m laying down - in my food.

While preparing our farm taxes today I ran across the receipts from when my favorite goat, Ella, became ill. Frantic trips to the vet, general store, HEB, and neighbors in search of relief. I made the difficult decision to personally put her down after a few days of suffering and took it exceptionally hard. That kind of emotional cost can’t be expensed or recuperated. I suppose most small business owners and entrepreneurs have similar scars. I’d like to see the USDA print a care-o-meter next to the nutrition labels on produce and animal products. It’d be a lot more transparent than the misleading labels they currently allow. Rant and pity-party over.
