Farm Photo Friday, October 11, 2013

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!

Erica Parker is going to be covering some animal chores this weekend.  Here Shawn demonstrates the appropriate amount of chamomile to include in the feed mix for the piglets.

Although it’s a rainy day, we relish the chance to build a bit of muscle on our way to the piglets.

It seems these little guys are eagerly awaiting their breakfast…

And that’s how you feed the piglets!

Would you believe that we are still up to our eyes in apples??  This is the time of year that we bring apples out to the cider press.

Shawn Kidd is all smiles…  He can already taste the sweet organic apple cider this trip is going to produce.

Here is the cider team getting ready to label some jugs!  (left to right:  Shawn Kidd, Chris West, Erica Parker, and Chris Sacelaris – and Amy Baringer behind the camera!)

Back at the farm, Coach welcomes our two new donkeys, Irwin and Mr. Tuggs.  They were a bit nervous at first…

But now they are settled in quite nicely.

Shawn spends some time with Irwin and Mr. Tuggs while he gets the low down on their routines.

Please don’t forget to share the organic love!

    Happy to see the photos of the boys – I am the woman in the shed – the one who dropped them off today. Makes me happy to see Shawn visiting w/ them. It looks like they are getting lots of attention so thanks! Please feel free to call me with any questions regarding their care if you need any help or suggestions.

    Thank you-
