And on with life we go...

Firstly, a huge thank you to all the folks who helped us out in the wake of our barn fire!  Many of our neighbors dropped off anywhere from a few bales to a pretty good sized stack to help us through the short term and we've been sent many names and numbers of folks who may have hay for sale.  Others have sent money towards a hay fund or offered to pay balances for CSAs that aren't due until March to help keep us liquid while getting ourselves put back together.

The folks at Wilson Banner Ranch rallied the whole clan and then some with about 120 bales of straw in about 5 trucks to come up the evening after our barn burned to construct some straw bale and cattle panel hoophouses to shelter our homeless sheep and piglets!

We are ever so grateful for all of the family and friends who have offered their help and assistance during this time.

But alas, life continues to move forward, whether you're sick, your barn burns down or your creek floods itself to nearly-record levels because of a single day melt of a foot and a half of snow.  (no worries, the piggies didn't have to swim... but I do think they were starting to consider building themselves a boat...)

This Weekend, February 15th, Omache Farm will be at Artfully Yours Bakery on Main Street in downtown Pullman for another mid-winter sale.  We will be there between 11 am and 2 pm along with Wilson Banner Ranch!

Omache Farm will have Lamb and PORK! (no bacon yet.  Sad, i know!)
Wilson Banner Ranch has promised pears and apples, honey and fresh eggs.  Yum!

Come on over, say hi to some of your local farmers, snag yourself some pork and apples and enjoy something gluten and allergen free from Artfully Yours with your neighbor!
