Some signs of Spring

Spring is starting to show up on the Premier Farms. We have crocuses blooming in the gardens, frogs croaking in the ponds and the fields are becoming more green by the hour. Since Spring has arrived a few weeks early this year, the ewe flocks will be put on the pastures sooner than we planned. This will prevent the forage in the fields from becoming overly mature at the time we normally graze.
