Thanks to our lamb banding helpers, we made quick work of our spring roundup. Lots of beers, giddy baby squeals, lamb hugging, and of course banding, on Saturday, and at the end -good food. We had a salad with the first Basil harvest of the year -look forward to basil in a few weeks at your local Purple Sage Farms purveyor.

Arlie here, and I’m enthused to be able to share some spring images from Purple Sage Farms. Just before the April showers began I took a lovely stroll on the farm with my family and I wanted to share it with you. With all of the babies decorating the pasture at this time of year, we often host friends on the farm and have them help bottle feed bummer lambs. It really feels like a spring salutation to see a green field full of frolickers, be they lamb, kid or human.
One of my favorite things to do on the farm is watch the lambs playing. They hop and wag their tails, giddy for their mother’s milk. Some of the newer mothers need a little extra help, so we bottle feed their 3rd lamb or kid.
Here’s a link to a video of the Lambs herding up at Purple Sage Farms, enjoy!
Happy spring and hope to see you at the farm soon!
