Friday Farm Update

Big news here at Victory Garden Farm!  We found a wonderful family who wants to buy 2 gallons of milk each week.  Our fridge has been busting at its seams with milk.   If you remember, it got to the point I was taking milk baths and feeding it to the chickens because we had so much milk.  Such a waste!  It is illegal to sell raw milk in Maryland for human consumption.  So why am I so excited to tell everyone that I have a buyer?  Because this family has a wildlife animal rescue and needs the milk for the abandoned animals.  Completely legal sale.  They have everything from baby deer to alpacas. 

We get about 3 gallons of milk a week from Mocha so after giving them 2 gallons we have a gallon for our personal use. Hubby and I really dont need much more than that, so this arrangement is perfect! Mocha has her own savings account now. All the money that we receive from the rescue center goes towards buying fence panels for the goat pen. So Mocha is really earning her larger pen. I can't tell you how much this helps! We are incredibly blessed to have hooked up with this rescue center. Its a win-win for everyone
