January on the Farm

January on a farm is a time for preparing for the year ahead and taking care of the ongoing needs of the farm. Our activities that commonly take place on our farm in January include:

1. Feeding and caring for livestock: Livestock, such as cows, pigs, and chickens, will need to be fed and cared for on a regular basis throughout the winter. This may include providing them with additional hay or feed to help them stay warm and healthy.

2.Pruning trees and shrubs: Some fruit trees and ornamental shrubs need to be pruned in the winter in order to promote healthy growth in the spring. This may involve removing dead or damaged branches and shaping the plant to encourage new growth.

3. Planning for the growing season: Many farmers spend the winter months planning for the growing season, including deciding what crops to plant, purchasing seeds and supplies, and preparing the land for planting.

4. Maintenance tasks: There are always a variety of maintenance tasks that need to be completed on a farm, such as repairing fences, fixing equipment, and cleaning out barns and sheds. These tasks may be more pressing in the winter when the weather is colder and there is less work to be done in the fields.
