A photo journal of the last week starting with Kara Kahl Farm…
Steve the Cat at Kara Kahl. If you decline his requests for attention, he might just lean on you a little bit.
If leaning doesn’t yield the results he wants, he has no choice but the bring out “Le Tigre”.
Gus even roped in Lance, notorious dog avoider, with his puppy eyes.
We nicknamed both kids. This one we called “Bounder”, but here he was acting more like his brother, “Nibbles”.
Recently unsuccessful in getting through the pen to a doe who seemed interested, this fellow was looking for love in all the wrong places.
Sometimes it seems like a big old barnyard love fest. The smaller and less rambunctious of the goofball brothers stole a quick nuzzle while I was snapping pictures.
The chickens live harmoniously among the much larger hooved and pawed beasties, but they aren’t as cuddly as the others. I loved the meta juxtaposition here. 😉
The milking gals know when it is time to be milked and, conveniently coincidentally, when it is time for grain. This is a hungry doe ready for her turn.
Unlike me, Lance says milking was never on his bucket list, but he gave it the old college try anyway!

And what more appropriate photo to close out the Kara Kahl section of the post than a bountiful harvest. There are two different varietals here. Both are delectable, but I can’t recall their names!

My first time making pizza dough was a success! These pies contained a little bit of every farm we’ve worked: Garlic from Windrose, sauce we canned at The Good Earth, mozzarella we made at Kara Kahl — and as a bonus we finished our eggs from SageRidge chickies this morning. A nice way to spend the evening and share some of our adventures with family on our short visit here in Wisconsin.
