Calf joins the farm!

Our new calf “Rusty” was born on June 24th. He joined us on the farm yesterday (at 6 days old) and our farm vacation guests will get to bottle feed him twice per day.

Rusty is a dairy bull calf and is already beginning to make friends with the chickens and lambs.

For those interested in dairy breeds, Rusty is an Ayrshire cross – which originated in the County of Ayr in Scotland, prior to 1800. For more information check out this site:
