New additions at Monnett Farms

This March, we welcomed 11 kids and 8 lambs to the farm. Everyone is doing well despite the cold weather and snow we had.

Freezing Weather & Less Than Perfect Timing

The animals have a way of timing things out that is usually less than perfect. We had one little buckling born in the frigid temperatures on Sunday March 2nd. His mom had him out in the snow and with sub-freezing temperatures, he was having a hard time. Luckily, Benson found him quickly. After spending several hours (in the middle of the night) warming him up in the truck, we were able to reunite him with his mother and the pair is doing well.

First Lambs Born at Monnett Farms

This is our first year having lambs on the farm, which has made things extra exciting. We’re really please with how the sheep have done and the lambs seem very strong and healthy.
