Introducing The Island School Farm’s six newest residents. In the past ten days six baby goats were born to three different mothers, increasing the number of goats living on the Cape to 11. Two were born little over a week ago with another two born last Saturday and the youngest two born on Monday. The kids are all doing well and adjusting to life on Eleuthera. Pictured are Moon, Shadow, Eli, Sunday, Flapjack, and Bonnie along with CEI staffers Al, Eric, Kelly, and Whitney as well as IS farmers Joseph and Noel.
The much anticipated birth of 9 bouncing baby piglets happened this past Monday. The event created quite a stir, as folks around campus organized a pool that included date of birth and number of piglets. (The parameters were controversial, as it took considerable negotiating to work through the issue of live births vs. surviving piglets). But in the end, Spencer and Annie split for the correct date, and Tiffany, Alex, and Noel all predicted the correct number of live births. As master of all things farm and livestock on campus, Joseph was disappointed with his miscalculations. But he vowed, with a sunny optimism only Joseph can muster, not to be outdone next time!
