I can't figure out how to rotate this picture, but this is a shot of the largest piglet we brought home today. He is a big guy!! My favorite part of picking up piglets is watching the drivers behind us. They lean forward, squint and then start laughing as they realize it is a bunch of piglets they are looking at!! They are so cute, but so strong!! This bunch weighed too much for us to slide out of the truck so Mike had to grab one by one and put in the pen, and they are so powerful it really gave Mike a run for his money!!! Meanwhile Molly is running in circles trying to do her part, and Mike is doing his best not to trip over her! Of course she is hoping he will trip and drop one so she can put it away. She went nuts as soon as she "smelled" us coming and went right to work barking and running in circles. You could just hear her saying "okay, let me do my job, just let them out, I'll put them away....awwww...come on guys!!!". It was nice to have her there after watching Mike struggle with the piglets. Just in case one did get away, I knew Molly would have it back in no time flat. It is nice to know I don't have to run around like a chicken with it's head cut off anymore chasing escapee animals!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our was absolutely stupendous!!! See ya all soon!!
My name is Rowena McDermott and with the help of my husband Michael I run Moonstruck Farms here in Phelan, California serving the Tri City area. Our goal is to provide local, farm fresh food to our community bringing dollars and health to our community.
We currently provide our produce to the local community in a variety of ways.
One, we provide sustainably farmed produce and eggs and have collaborated with other farmers in the area to bring farm fresh poultry and fruit to our Online CSA customers. Our CSA is nontraditional in that our customers order per item and all ordering is done online with a delivery at a predetermined location once a week. For more information please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our website www.moonstruckfarmscsa.webs.com.
Two, we sell eggs and produce to Tri Community Co-op in Wrightwood (www.tricommunitycoop.com).
We also sell to our local health food store, Natural Elements located at 4120 Phelan Road, Phelan, (760) 868-8088 and deliver each Thursday.
Thank you for supporting our local farming community!!
