Man, if I had a quarter for every time one of my clients laughed “Well, I guess you really are here to stay!” or “I see you never plan on moving again” when they write a check made out to Last Move Farm I’d be “farting in silk,” to quote my late father-in-law.

Most ti...

I figured certain things in Lexington would just never cease to be. Buffalo and Dad’s. High on Rose. Spaulding’s Donuts. That old-school soda fountain in the drug store on Main Street that was the only place I could ever find egg salad sandwiches like my mom made. And...

Winter is absolutely, bar none my least favorite time of the year. Late winter brings with it the birth of kids (goats, not hoomans) but prior to that, I find reasons to spend as much time as possible indoors in front of a roaring fire. This year, my time is spent rese...

My first actual spinning lesson was a private one with Hillary, before I had my own wheel set up. She came to my house, lugging with her her own spinning wheel, as well as an E-spinner. As the name would imply, the E-spinner is electric, so no need to self-power the th...

On the heels of the carder and also working toward the goal of adding value to my fleece, my second major SSFG purchase was a spinning wheel. I cannot stress enough the value of a good mentor when undertaking a new endeavor! My mentor for spinning was Hillary Jipson, w...

I have spent a significant amount of time since receiving the grant check pondering and researching equipment. As I thought about things, it dawned on me that I needed to make this grant count as much as I possibly could not only for myself, but for other sheep produce...

I began to learn about washing of raw fleece last summer (2017). Relying on information gleaned from Sara Dunham (Equinox Farm in Cynthiana, KY) as well as online groups and fiber forums, I dipped my toe in the (often disgusting) fiber-washing water with slight trepida...

Well, that didn’t take long! In only 24 days, I have been notified that Last Move Farm will indeed be a Small Scale Farm Grant recipient! Where oh where to begin? At the beginning, I suppose.

Once Rambo’s progeny hit the ground, I thought it imperative to learn as much...

In August, 2018, I applied for and received a Small Scale Farm Grant from Kentucky State University. My goal is to be able to increase income on our small (50 acre) Kentucky farm. We are not farmers per se; we sort of came backward into livestock farming from the Thoro...
