Every Friday we share some snaps from our 333-acres in Kutztown, PA. Our photographers? The staff members who keep this farm chugging along. Enjoy a sneak peek at what’s going on here at Rodale Institute!
Miss Peggy had a surprise for everyone on Monday! Over the weekend, she gave birth to six precious, pint-sized piglets. Nothing says "spring" like new born piglets!
Hungry and happy, the piglets don't stray far from mom's side!
Ross Duffield, Farm Manager, and Mark Fabian and Michael Schmaeling, Facility Team Members, worked hard to build this beautiful custom home for the piglets and Miss Peggy.
Even though it's spring and the weather is warming up, the piglets still need to snuggle close together next to mom to stay warm.
Michael Schmaeling, Facilities Team Member, is giving this little piggy some hugs and head scratches!
Mom's keeping close watch over her piglets! These little guys are looking happy and healthy!
Vogue! This little piggy strikes his first pose! Little does he know that there will be many more photo shoots to come!
Houdini thinks he's just as cute as the little piglets. What do you think? Come learn more about Houdini and our other pigs at Rodale Institute's Heritage Pastured Pigs: Help your hogs help your profits workshop on May 2nd.
The tulips are blooming just in time for their debut at our Spring Thaw plant sale event tomorrow, Saturday March 28th!
Cynthia James, Agriculture Supported Communities (ASC) Program Manager, is planting celeriac over in the greenhouse! Celeriac is a variety of celery that forms a large, swollen celery root. It grows fairly large and is delicious roasted or in soups! By the way, we're still accepting applications for internships with our ASC program!

It looks like Mr. Tuggs needs an opponent in his game of backyard soccer!
Irwin is hiding out in the donkey shed and it seems like Mr. Tuggs is saying, "lace up your cleats and get on the field!"
What did the sheep say to the other sheep?
"Hey, where'd the goats go?"
We found the goats and they've moved to greener pastures! This little guy has some show-stopping eyes, don't you think?
