Last year we purchased a small herd of cows in Montana. The purpose was to create our own farm herd. We bought 12 female cows and one young bull.

The herd are all British White Parks, a very unusual cow in that they're both beef and dairy. The meat has less fat that most breeds. They're great mothers, very gentle and protective of their young ones.

Now we have six sprightly calves to entertain is while they bounce around their pasture. And there are more to come in the next months.

The best news is that phase 1 of 8 parcels is completely sold. We have to build a small bridge across the North Fork to access the west side, so sales of the 10 parcels are considered 'pending' until we receive State approval of our permit application. At this time we will begin closing these pending sales.

Mason County has already approved our permit. So, if you're interested in becoming part of Skokomish Farms we urge you to contact us, and visit as soon as possible.

We're busy planning our winter and spring activities which will include installation of a livestock waterline on the west side of over 4,000 feet long.

Next, is construction of our first greenhouse, which will be on rails so it can be moved when desirable to grow new plants. This greenhouse will be considered a 'seasonal' type of construction.

We're working on a newsletter, so email us and we'll send you the latest. If you've already contacted us you'll receive the newsletter before Christmas.
