Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the folks at Grace Valley Farms!

The sheep at the farm send their greetings! 





May you be blessed as you rejoice in the birth of Jesus, our Savior! 

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. - Isaiah 9:6

Winter Wonderland!

This past weekend we had another snowstorm blow through our area. 

 The temperatures dipped to -10 degrees one night! The sheep were not cold as they stayed nice and warm in their long wool coats!

When the temperatures drop and the snow covers our pastures, we supplement the energy needs of our sheep by feeding extra hay. Since it was below freezing for a few days, we added alfalfa hay to their diets. Alfalfa is a good source of protein and it is also loaded with vitamins and minerals.
