January 2016 enjoying a little sun on a frosty day with the pigs

Today is January 2, 2016.  It is 28F here in Roy and the ground is frozen solid.  We are introducing our new KuneKune boar "Howie" to the rest of our herd.  We took all of the pigs outside for them to play on the frost covered frozen ground and eat carrots with Morgan.  The other pigs have accepted Howie and he is doing well!  He is such a wonderful addition to the farm and Morgan's favorite boy!  Here are some of the photos I took today of the pigs enjoying their time outside.

2015 year update


Worrell Family 2015 update


            2015 is a year we will always remember as one where we dealt with a number of changes both in our lives. This year, I have started teaching Human anatomy and physiology at a local Community College.  I love teaching and have enjoyed the students.  Our daughter also experienced changes as she started the 8 grade at a new school.  Due to transportation problems, we had to switch schools at the last possible moment before school began.

2015 update

This year has brought a lot of changes to our family farm.  The year started off as a hard one with my father, age 86, developing health problems and then us loosing him in June.  We all know he is in a happier place now and once again with the wife he loved for 56 years.  

Mark and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary by bringing in KuneKune pigs to our farm.  We are excited about our new arrivals (Justin, Ginger, Maryanne, and Miley) and hope for piglets in December.  Will keep you posted on that!

2014 year update

2014

This year has been full of fun on the farm.  Morgan enjoyed a litter of Dutch bunnies from her two chocolate/white Dutch bunnies (Mocha and Chief).  We enjoyed playing with the baby bunnies in the kitchen.  I was blessed with a litter of French angora bunnies from Buttercup and Brownie.  The fiber on the babies is just wonderful.  I kept a little male "Copper" out of the litter for our future breeding program.  Lovely boy with incredible fiber.  We also added a new horse to our farm.

Information on Cashmere Goats, Kiko Goats, Shetland Sheep, angora and dutch bunnies

If you are looking for information on our animals or general information on Cashmere or kiko goats, shetland sheep, Dutch rabbits or Angora rabbits, please don't hesitate to contact us.  I really enjoy talking about the animals and assisting people. It is wonderful to speak to people who are doing their "homework" prior to obtaining animals to make sure they have the correct housing/food/time/etc. needed for care of the animals.  Also, it is not always easy to breed quality/healthy animals.  Please feel free to contact us.  No question is not worth asking!!!  If I don't know the answer, I will try to help you locate someone who has the answer!
