Piglets and Beef Chicks on Pasture!



Colonel’s Blog, Earthdate 4 September 2023…

Hey Y’all!


Good evening and happy Monday, Labor Day from Air2Ground Farms! I hope you have thoroughly enjoyed your holiday weekend! The weather here was warm and dry until this afternoon when a thunderstorm rolled through and dropped an inch of rain in about 30 minutes and the temps dropped about 15 degrees. It looks like this is the start of some rain for the next few days, which the grass really needs. The Saturday market was a great market from a sales perspective but we didn’t really have any in-depth chats with folks. Still amazed at how different each week turns out. That said, Sunday was mainly a community-building day. We had friends over for breakfast and chatted into the early afternoon. We went to pick up the new piglets and while there, chatted with them for an hour or so and toured their farm and got an in-depth look at their operation. We are so excited to be raising pigs/hogs from their operation. The 10 we got in the spring are also from them. Our pigs’ grandfather was scored as #1 in the nation for the quality of pork from his offspring. Pair those genetics with fermented GMO-free food and life in our forest…this is going to be AMAZING pork! I put 3 pics of the new piglets. They already enjoy their feed! I also added a few pics of the beef chicks ruling their roost in their tractor on pasture. Finally, I added a pic of TJ and 2 of Tank, both taking their job of guarding the lambs very seriously. We recorded the next edition of the Dust’er Mud podcast today and my stomach is still sore from laughing so hard! We had more fun recording this episode than any other, and that’s saying something. The last episode has 111 views on YouTube and 3 listens on various podcast sites, exceeding our goal of 100 combined engagements within the first year! I hope you have an opportunity to watch/listen as we talk about the surprises we encountered as we prepared for our chat regarding grass-fed beef. It seems straight forward, but it’s anything but. I’ll include the show notes in a blog later this week and will try to get it edited and uploaded so you guys can watch the YouTube video before it goes public.
