"Recycle" The Rain
Where & When You Need Water


Despite a our record-breaking warm weather this summer, we all know this is the “wet” coast.  So, why not take advantage of the abundance of rain and harvest it to use for your farm animals, your landscaping, or other water-related chores?
 
Black Creek Farm & Feed Supply not only offers advice, but we have a full range of products for Rain Water Harvesting.
 
From pipes and screens to tanks (250-3000 gallon), we have what you need.

Layers Need Light


With the shortest days just around the corner, care should be taken to ensure your laying hens have at least 14-16 hours of light each day for optimal laying during the winter.  
 
Just hook up a light to a timer and give those girls more light. Many say it is best to awaken them early (2am) and let them go to bed at the natural time of dusk, rather than to use your timer to extend the light into evening.
 
You may also want to adjust their feed to a higher ratio (18%) if you notice a decrease in egg production (size or quantity).

How About Bees?


We have complete hive kits and wide variety of supplies to get
you started or top up what you're working on. Even "Bee Keeping For Dummies."

While we're happy to provide advice at BCFF, you may want to talk with other beekeepers.

Check out these groups: These groups host meetings and welcome guests. The groups' experienced members are willing to share "been-there-done-that" advice, so don't be shy to ask questions.  
 

Stay tuned for an upcoming workshop at BCFF, too.
