Back to the Blog

Greetings!

Well, it seems like every year at this time I look at the blog and realize that I have been woefully neglectful. Fortunately, the world can continue to spin without my thoughts adding to the cyberspace clutter. But, since this blogging thing is supposed to be good for business(my daughters tell me)I guess I will get back on the horse.

Obviously lots of things have happened at Winterberry Farm since May but I don’t want to update you with one huge post so be on the lookout for posts to come about the summer and fall goings on. The topics may or may not include: The Airstream Not So Dry Run , The Great Fall, Wilbur and Templeton, The Great Rooster Culling, PeeMan Sings Country, The Boyfriends, etc.

For now I just want to say that I hope you had a Merry Christmas and I wish you all the best for 2016!

Sure Signs of Spring: Chicken Wrangling and PeeMan in the Garden

Greetings!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. We owe a deepest debt of gratitude to those men and women who have fought and died in the fight to keep our great country free. Thank you.

Well, it is 58 degrees out. No worries about getting the air conditioners in any time soon. I haven’t even thought about getting the pool ready(and I am usually ready for it in April!). Spring is definitely taking her sweet time this year. We have had plenty of moisture but sunshine has been a rare commodity. However, certain events of this past weekend are undeniable indicators of Spring’s return(however reluctant) – the 8 chicks were moved out of their “chickubator” and into the hen house.

That was the easy part.

New Chicken Run

Getting Brown Betty and The Amish Hen into their new spacious digs was a bit more challenging.

It involved some tricky manuevering, some edible motivation, and a little coaxing with a badminton racket, but I am pleased to announce that the girls are now enjoying a much bigger run and spacious hen condominium.

Secondly, last year’s pig sty(R.I.P Stanley)was disassembled and a new, much more luxurious and commodious pen was built in a new location in anticipation of the arrival of 2 piglets.

The environmentally conscious man that I am, I simply couldn’t let all that rich, nutrient filled earth left behind by pig pen #1 go to waste.  So, that is now officially the PeeMan’s garden patch. Since it is mine, and it is hidden  so as not to offend my wife’s aesthetic sensibilities, I get to grow what I want in it, so the corn has been planted and squash and pumpkins will soon follow.

My daughter has also laid claim to some of the land for her own garden this year and the peas and lettuce have already been planted. As soon as the seeds sprout, the WolfPee will be put around the garden plot to protect the tender shoots from any hungry animals.

Well, that just about brings things up to date here at the PeeMan’s farm. I hope it is warm and sunny where you are, and don’t forget to protect your gardens this summer with 100% PredatorPee – Accept no substitutes!

100% Mt. LionPee vs. Boar – PredatorPee Unleashed: Episode 2

Greetings!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We sure did – as always lots to be thankful for!

Without further ado, as promised – the second episode of PredatorPee UnleashedThe following is a video of a boar reacting to our 100% Mt. LionPee and 100% WolfPee. These critters are scared senseless and want nothing to do with the scent of their feared predators. NOTE: This video was provided to us, the PeeMan does not have any boars in pens on the farm(only Stanley the pig) – and no animals were harmed in the production of this clip.  Take a look . . .

At http://www.predatorpee.com, we sell Mt. LionPee to protect against wild boar, javelina, and feral hogs BUT our customers in Japan have successfully used both Mt. LionPee and WolfPee to keep these animals out of the rice paddies.

My Kind of Reality Show – PredatorPee Unleashed Episode 1

Greetings from the North woods!

Ok, we have had some serious chill this week up here! A couple of days it only made it into the low 30’s! Well, I shouldn’t complain since I choose to live here.

Anyway, moving on – would you believe that I received another email from a different production company based in New York about a PeeMan reality show?!! I just don’t understand why people would want to sit around and watch me and my family sell, package and ship animal urine. I mean – I think my job is great and definitely fodder for interesting conversation, but I wouldn’t want to sit in front of a screen watching me or anyone else do it.

I do actually have a worthwhile contribution to the “reality tv” craze. The following is a video of “real” live deer reacting to our 100% CoyotePee. Talk about drama! These deer want nothing to do with the scent of one of their feared predators. But, the whole point of reality tv is to see it, not read about it – without further ado – PredatorPee Unleashed – Episode 1

Stay tuned for more episodes.

Words from the Customers Continued . . .

Greetings!

Every now and again I like to empty my PeeMail and share with you the great stuff that I hear from customers every day.  So without further ado. . .

“Hi, Family friend is a satisfied customer and she recommended your products to chase squirrels. Thanks. Richard”

“I read an article about Bobcat pee as a repellent for mice, and found you using a google search. bmf”

“I have been ordering your products for a few years, mainly bobcat and coyote pee for rats and mice. I used google to find you the first time and I continue to refer customers to you. Thank You…Joyce”

“I purchased from you previously, found you via web search. . .  So far the Wolf urine seems to being working. I have four small dogs and we have seen coyotes in our area pretty regularly . I will be trying the granules for the first time when this next order arrives. I plan on taking some with me when we head to our Florida home this winter, YES, there are coyotes there too.”

“I found out about you because my friend had racoons and used your products and they went away. Courtney”

“This is the second order I’ve made. I found you by a google search. Haven’t seen any bobcats or coyote! Thanks for giving me a little peace of
mind. Lisa”

Not much to add to all that. So, until I find more words . . .

Ward Off Winter Wire Chewers

Hello Again!
Well it has been a rough week around here. I am starting to feel like I am living in a bad country song. My truck broke. Then my motorcycle went on the fritz. If my dog dies or my wife leaves me then I will be right there with a tear in my beer. But, seriously it has been one of those weeks.RVPic

Enough personal stuff. In Maine, the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler, and that can mean only one thing — fall is coming and winter will be short to follow. That means that it will soon be time to get those boats out of the water and rvs off the road. At the same time all the small nuisance rodents are eagerly waiting to find a warm cozy place in which to spend the long winter months. So it is time for you to start thinking about protecting these valuable assets from chewing, nesting rodents. And the PeeMan once again has your back. Our Car-Rv-Boat Pak is the solution to preventing the expensive damage that can happen when your rvs and boats are in winter storage. But, don’t take my word for it . . .

“Hi,
I have been ordering Bobcat Urine from you for so long that I am fuzzy on the details. I believe I did a Google search about nontoxic ways to get rid of mice. I believe that led me to some articles about bobcat urine, then I did a Google search on bobcat urine and there you were. It works great for my purposes. The fewer mice my cats bring in, the happier I am.”

“Sir, you have a very effective product. I have ordered your product in the past with no problems…Animal Control here in Temple City suggested your product.”
Nino

“A friend, who is a satisfied customer, recommended you. This is my second order. Obviously it worked the first time or I would not have ordered again.”

Nuff said!

Prairie Dogs of Summer?

Hello Again!

Well, I truly hope you are having a pleasant summer. Around here the tomatoes are turning red on the vine and the ears of native corn are starting to pop up at roadside stands. Unfortunately, this year’s corn- growing in my garden did not go so well. Late cold and lots of wet despoiled the crop. Oh well, that is why we have grocery stores, right? In another piece of farming news, the escaped pig was never recovered and while I make my living trying to help people keep predators away, I kind of hope a coyote got it because the idea of a full-grown feral pig wandering my woods is not a pleasant one. Anyway, the remaining pig( which my youngest daughter has named Stanley) seems to be settling in to life on the PeeMan’s farm. Of course that is easy when he can be blissfully unaware of his impending demise. I however am not unaware and am impatiently waiting for Stanley chops and Stanley bacon. Sorry if this bothers some of you, but a man’s got to eat!

Enough about me! Last post I took a look at a yard pest that is totally foreign to my neck of the woods, and today I will travel down that same road. Prairie dogs sort of require prairies and last time I checked there aren’t too many of those up here in the Great North Woods. But, apparently there are some parts of the country where these gopher like creatures still make their homes. From what I can gather, those “homes” can be destructive to yards and gardens. On the other hand, the labeling of the prairie dog as a pest has led to a damaging level of eradication. So, a solution that does not harm this unique and fascinating creature but encourages them to make their home elsewhere would be ideal. Just so happens . . .We’ve got a pee for that! The coyote is one of the prairie dog’s natural predators so our 100% CoyotePee is the perfect solution!

Well, a nice blend of personal and business makes for a good blog post.

So, until I find more words. . .
