About the author

Bill Fosher started farming in 1989 in Hadley, Mass., and hasn’t been able to stop since. After years of moving from place to place, he and his wife, Lynn Zimmerman, have put down roots in the Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire, not far from where Bill grew up. Vegetables were his first farming venture, but sheep were added in 1990 and have been Bill’s main passion ever since. They also raise and sell pork, pastured chickens and turkeys, farm fresh eggs, hand-dyed and natural color yarns, and sheepskins. Bill is an expert in pasture management, and moonlights as the coordinator for Granite State Graziers. He is known for his common-sense approach to intensive rotational grazing and for his commitment to animal welfare.

    Very timely, first lambs of the year born this morning, at about 5*F. All fine, but unexpected and hypothermia definitely a concern. Their outside hay pack stays dry in the frigid weather, but it is a little crowded. We do have an inside space to keep newborns and their moms for the first day or so.
