“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Our hens have been laying more eggs than we can consume,
so we have been donating them to the county Food Pantry
each week.
From time to time, Hubbs volunteers for the Food Pantry,
helping with food distribution.
Last week he was asked if our farm could make use of
some of the produce that would not be distributed.

Apparently, they had received a large load of apples and were unable

in some spots.
So, Saturday morning he picked up two cases of apples.
They are now in the barn refrigerator and will be treats

For some strange reason, the donkeys turn their noses up
when offered a piece of apple... unless it is a tiny piece.

Sunday I thought it might be fun to let the horses "bob" for apples.
We cut the apples into bite sized pieces and this is how it went...
