July: What’s new on the farm!

Already the middle of the year has passed! In spite of, and in between all the rain and storms, we succeeded in making our hay. It’s always a pleasure to see our bales of hay in the fields. And the smell of freshly cut hay is a real treat !!For now, we have about thirty…
