A Wedding at Mulberry Lane Farm

Oh My! Grab a kleenex before sitting down to enjoy this awesome video of a couple deeply in love captured by a very talented team of professionals at Kim Thiel Photography. Must admit, the backdrop certainly enhances this masterpiece.
Weddings at Mulberry Lane Farm are something new. Being a children's petting farm first and foremost, hosting weddings wasn't something really on our radar. However, after watching the video of one of the weddings held at the farm (10/1/11), I now understand why couples who do want something "out of the box" fall in love with the farm for a unique setting.  
Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Jerry Ort for allowing us the pleasure of hosting your special day.  And to the team of professionals at Kim Thiel Photography...thank you for capturing this blessed event. Godspeed.

Shetland Ewe Stops By the Morning Show on TV26

Today's segment of Bonnie's Barnyard brings Lightening to the studio.  Baaaahhh...

Click on link to watch.

Wisconsin winters can be harsh. One farm animal we envy is the sheep.  They have a thick wool coat that is perfect for staying dry & warm in any climate.
  • Lightening is a Shetland ewe (female). Male sheep are called rams.
  • Shetlands are small and slow-growing. It can take two to three years to reach their adult weight.
  • Rams usually weigh approximately 105 lbs and ewes about 85 lbs. Lambs (baby sheep) are born weighing around 5 lbs.
  • Shetlands live 10 to 12 years. According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the oldest sheep lived to be 23.
  • The breed is noted for its very fine, soft wool and the high quality of its meat.
  • Wool is one of the best insulating fibers known to man. It is moisture wicking.
  • Their wool repels water, but humidity is absorbed. That's why sheep do well in both winter and summer.
  • Sheep have excellent peripheral vision and can see behind themselves without turning their heads.

Up, Up & Away.

In the dead of winter it warms the soul to view the farm on warmer days.  This aerial was taken this past October.
