North Woods Homestead, Trained Registered Mini Jersey Family Milk Cows & Rare Salmon Faverolles Chickens, Priest River, Idaho
We recently joined the International Mini Cattle Breeders Society & Registry as Lifetime Members. This, to us, shows our long term commitment to breeding generations of Mini Jerseys that are each better than the one before. We've taken steps to establish quality stock and register all our herd. From here out all cattle we breed will be registered. We are listed now on the registry website.
We have procured several large pieces of equipment needed to harvest our own hay for the first time. After years of doing it on shares, 50/50 split with the harvesting farmer, we will be baling our own small square hay bales. We hope to have some extra to sell to cover costs and turn a little profit. Earning an income for our efforts, while providing for ourselves and neighbors, has always been the goal. We're SO close!
These new milestones excite us for the direction we're headed and the future of our homestead. For the past few years we've done so much dreaming. Then, it almost seems like overnight we're making huge strides to have a self-sustaining homestead!
Have a great Spring!
