Our Iowa State Tshirt Quilt

It is no secret that my wife and I support Iowa State.  We regularly watch Iowa State Athletics especially football and men's basketball.  Throughout the years we had accumulated numerous Iowa State University tshirts.  Since we had so many of them and since my mother-in-law and owner of we had he make a tshirt quilt for us.  We think it turned out pretty good.  It is queen sized tshirt quilt and we love it because its nice and warm plus it just brightens our bedroom and reminds us of the good memories made at ISU.

2013 Chickens - An 8 Week Review

We took our chickens to be butchered on Friday, July 12 after raising them for 55 days (just slightly under 8 weeks). We did a live weighing at 50 days to make sure we were going to make our target weight for butchering. We targeted 6 lbs for our dressed (processed ready to be cooked) chicken weight which is on average about 2 lbs. larger than the chickens you can normal buy in the grocery store. We feel the chickens just taste better and are a better value to our customers at that size than a smaller, younger chicken.

New Spring Creek Farm Website

I decided to do a few upgrades to the Spring Creek Farm website.  With more and more people using smart phones and tablets the need for a website to be easily seen and navigable on any type of platform and screen size has become a must.  The new Spring Creek website thus has   a responsive theme so it can be easily viewed on any device.  I also redesigned the layout the site to include different events and videos I intend to publish.  I also revamped the order form for ordering Spring Creek products and hopefully made it more user-friendly. 

New Year - New Goals - New Pieces

Well it's 2013 and with a new year comes another set of goals or resolutions, if you will, for the new year.  Aside from the normal personal and family resolutions for 2013, I also have developed a few for the farm that I am hoping to accomplish.  Some are relatively small but some are pretty aggressive, so hear they are in no particular order:
