LuLu the Diva!

  Introducing Lulu, the Queen of R&C Dairy, her majesty and her little sire rule the roost here! Lulu came to us from a Mennonite farm in Dodge City Kansas, as she is a miniature Jersey, she has the first impression of a big barrel on sticks when you see her. She has absolute power here on the farm. She tells us when it is milking time, she tells us when it is supper time, she tells us when she is peeved about something, she ignores us when we want her attention, she comes from the far end of the pasture when we whisper her name, she gives us some "sugar" when she feels like it ..... We just love her to pieces. She gives the best creamy milk, and she knows it. She is going to have another calf in the Spring, and as always on a dairy, heifer calves are the wish, but we just hope for a healthy baby for LuLu. Little Lincoln is going to be our next herd sire, and as he has matured, our only concern is that we will have to get a step stool for him to accomplish his task! He is SHORT!!! But the Farmer assures me that where there is a will, there is a way, and lovesick bovine beauties have been known to "stoop down" a little, if need be, to do the deed, if you get my drift. Market hours are going to be the same through December 23, as we are preparing for the holidays. Thurs. Fri. Sat. from noon until 4:00 PM. Orders for holiday goodie baskets need to be placed by Dec 15th.  We will be closed through Christmas and New Years, more detailed dates will be posted. We are still harvesting the last of the produce, as a big freeze is expected next week, we are winding down. We will be closed Thursday and Friday, of Thanksgiving week, but will be open Saturday from noon until 4:00 pm. From our Farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support.                                                                                                                                                                              In


  1. Sure would be interested in a milk cow class for those of us just getting into having our own family cow.

    Love the blog, too!!

  2. Next Spring we are going to have a Festival here on the farm where we will be doing some demonstrations on the basics of milking cows and goats.We will be happy to share what we have experienced with those that want to learn, Thanks so much for reading the blog, Carol. P.S. Jennifer, if you would like to come to the farm, Rocky would be happy to answer any questions that you might have.

  3. Oh Wow! Lulu has a calf! He is beautiful! Last time I spoke to you, she was on a slight diet :D

    Thanks for sharing!
