This Mama goose has been patiently waiting on this clutch of eggs for days now. Geese are VERY protective of their eggs and will certainly hiss and bite you if you get too close! So … we will keep our distance and patiently wait for goslings. Hopefully we have a photo of that soon.
Isn’t it amazing how well she blends in with her surroundings? Nature is amazing!
Recently, we bought 100 chickens. Now these little chickens, for a short time fit very easily into two paper boxes.
After they were delivered we transferred them into a stock tank with heating lamps over the top which they soon outgrew.

We will be hosting the 7th annual Firefighters Muster at May Farms on JULY 13th!
The Muster will begin at 9 am, with a captains meeting at 8:00 am. If your department is interested in participating please contact the office at 303.822.5800 for a registration form.
The first Firefighters’ Muster was held on July 4, 1849 in Bath, Maine. Five teams, using hand drawn pumpers, competed to see which team could shoot a stream of water the longest distance. During the second half of the 19th century firefighers’ musters grew. Modern musters are very different from those early events. Today they are more complex, with serious competition among fire companies and individuals. The goal is to perform the challenge task perfectly, and according to strict rules, and in the fastest time.

These little Chinese Geese arrived today. You can visit these babies or any animals in the barnyard on your next trip to May Farms! These feathered friends were not born here. Their feathers are soft and cuddly and they can not join their older friends in the water yet because they do not produce the oil like a mother goose provides for their young babies and they will get too cold. Until they produce that oil they will have to swim in climate controlled waters. Hope to see you at May Farms soon!

After a beautiful day of heavy snow the sun has finally peeked through at May Farms and we are enjoying the pristine landscape. Soon we will pull out or tractors and start plowing the driveways and parking lot. There is something about untouched snow that is peaceful.
We get a lot of questions about organic farming from visitors through out the year. As May Farms uses a variety of sustainable farming practices we are not organic farmers. It is refreshing to know that 99% of farmers say that protecting the environment is a good goal to practice. We feel as stewards of the land it is our responsibility to use as many farming practices as we can to help conserve the land, water and other resources at May Farms.
Big news today for the CSU Agricultural Education Program! Four of Colorado’s top agricultural lenders have joined together to donate more than $1 million for construction of a modern Center for Agricultural Education at CSU that will train new generations of agricultural teachers and leaders. The May Family has had 4 children attend CSU, two of which graduated with Agricultural degrees. As farmers with concern for the future of our industry, we are excited to see this new “Center for Agricultural Education” gain support as the need to properly educated and arm our future leaders is huge.
Thank you for your commitment to Agriculture!
