A Year of Farming
Every day at Windy View Farm is full of activity. Whether we’re feeding and watering the animals, cleaning their sleeping areas, or preparing for the two markets we attend—we love what we do! The rest of our working schedule is very organized to focus on a variety of tasks at optimal times of the year. This allows for a happy and efficient working environment and the best products for our customers.

We spread our animals’ manure that we’ve stored over the winter. This ensures that we have healthy pastures and hay for our animals. During this time of year, we also fix and build fences.
