Che, one of our cows, with the farmhouse in the background. All the animals are named after activists.
One of the thousands of honey bees from our hives. Bees are important for pollination and great honey too.
Howard, one of 2011's calves from our small herd of cattle. Our cattle are pasture-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free. We try to maintain rotational pastures, which helps in keeping pathogens down. Howard, who is named after Zinn, likes the shade of the LEED-certified outhouse (just kidding about that!)
At Red Earth Farm, we keep decendants of wild hogs. This allows us to maintain our no-chemical pledge, since these hogs don't get most of the diseases that domesticated hogs get.
New to the farm this year are ducks, here safe in the South Garden.
Milking Ingrid, one of our Sannan goats, with her recently born kid, Julian, waiting his turn. Ingrid's last name is Betancourt.
Rosa and one of her baby chicks. Guess who Rosa was named after.
Watching the guinea fowl is one of our small pleasures here at the farm.
