Milk up, Eggs down

Hmmmm. We have new hands here that are jumping in and handling a lot of the farm work. All the milk cows are under a roof, warm, well fed, and regularly milked, so the milk production has come up. Now we have excess milk, can deliver more if you want it, and will be able to stick to a consistent delivery schedule (at least it won't be delayed by milk production issues).

Chickens have been at our feet through all of the recent changes. Lots of chickens everywhere. With the new hands, we finally are starting to get the chickens contained in trailers on pasture, and soon into the greenhouse for winter. We had an excess of eggs for quite a while, which resulted in eggs stored for too long here turning out bad for the farm share owners. Now egg production has crashed, no lights on the chickens yet. The quality of the eggs we delivery should be consistent now, but the quantity of production may not meet demand at some point in the near future. We shall see, and will do our best to make it happen through winter without a break this year.
