Cajeta Anyone?

If you want to try some of the best caramel you will every have stop by the store and pick some up next time you are in.  We just made our first batch this year and it is amazing, the texture is very nice and the caramel has a very rich flavor that is not overwhelming.  This goes great with ice cream and fruit!

Batman is our only bull calf on the farm.  Here he is showing off his new hardware, his new nose ring, now he is an offical bull!  The reason for putting a ring in a bull’s nose is to control them when they are adults.  Just like any animal if we need to tend to a bull for health reasons or just to move them some where else on the farm they can get very mean.  We try our best to train Batman to behave by spending extra time with him, we also put a halter on him at times just so he will get use to it.  There is nothing like getting in a pin with a 2000lbs bull and getting ran over, so the nose ring will help from getting injuried when he is an adult, plus the lady cows dig it!
