No worms part two for now.

I decided the other day that, as we have just had our worm bin for a short time I would probably just increasing the noise about the issue on the Internet with a follow up post on the subject. I guess I don't like doing "how to" posts. I would rather share with you what we are doing and whether or not it works for us. That way you can decide what works best for you.

We have a couple of other irons in the fire at the time.
  1. We currently have some maple taps out and I hope to produce some of our own syrup this year.
  2. We have started looking for breeding stock to raise meat rabbits this year and acquired some cages to house them in.
  3. We have ordered ducklings and replacement laying hens for the season.
Lastly we have submitted the paperwork to the secretary of state's office to become incorporated. To me that is a big step toward making the farm a legitimate business enterprise.

Busy, busy, busy!

It sounds as though you will indeed be very busy this summer. I would love to hear more about what being incorporated means for you one of these days.

Congrats on becoming official!
We are looking into starting meat rabbits this year too. Would love to hear more posts from you about this. Jeremy has been doing all the research and has probably checked out every rabbit-related book in the whole county! =)

Mr. H.- We will be busy indeed. For us the incorporation is important if we want to sell any products of the farm. We need to consider that as we still have a hefty mortgage.

Aimee- Thanks! We may have to swap rabbit stories some day. If Jeremy has found a good source of breeding stock I would love the contact info.

Hey Farmer Rick, we don't have any leads on anything as of yet.
Have you seen this?

I found it to be helpful somehow (if not a bit gory!).

Thanks Aimee I did see that.

Hope the worm project goes well. We've been thinking about this ourselves as well, but we don't know anyone who's actually done it. I'll check back to see if you like it or not.
