A chicken Tractor is basically a mobile chicken house that lacks a floor. It is designed to be easily moved so that the chickens can eat, scratch and fertilize in one area, then be moved to a fresh area periodically. My dad and I have been building a chicken tractor and it was really run!
January is not my favorite month…the days are short and time spent outside is limited. It feels like there are so many tasks to complete and not enough daylight to do it. I have several projects I want to start on the farm but there is an impending winter storm this week so I wanted to look into a fun small project to work on inside. This leads me to microgreens and sprouts. I’m sure you have seen these at the Farmers Markets around Tulsa. They are outrageously priced for a small bundle of greens that you can add to salads or sandwiches. I’ve often wondered what is so special about this product that makes them so expensive…so I went on a deep dive for information on them and I’ll be attempting to grow my own.
Hi, I’m Lori! Welcome to Elm Bend Farm! When I was born, my dad was a foreman at a ranch in a very rural community, called Nowata, OK. We lived in the family’s ranch houses. My parents built their own place when I was six and my brother was four. I grew up helping my dad with his operation in any way I could. I am so thankful to my parents for providing my brother and I with a well rounded education including a love for music, as well as a strong work ethic that is needed when you work a farm or ranch.
