Welcome to our Website! (and an update)
I haven't written a blog post in quite some time, so I thought I would do a little update right now. As many of you know, this has been a very difficult and challenging spring for farmers across the country. In our area, the ground has not had a chance to dry out enough to get in the fields before another bout of rain comes and the temperatures have been on the cooler side. Because of this, spring planting is several weeks behind schedule, as well as hay-making. If you were out and about today, chances are high that you saw farm equipment traversing the roads and fields. Today conditions were favorable enough to get equipment hooked up and rolling. Kevin has been working in fields all day today - chisel plowing and spreading manure. As I write this, he is still spreading manure. Normally a friend spreads the manure for us, but because of the conditions this year, everyone needs him at virtually the same time. Kevin was able to borrow a spreader to get our turkey litter spread. We are thankful for great friends and neighbors all around us.
Some snapshots of today:
This spring we again participated in the Eat Healthy Eat Local Festival in St. Johns, MI. It was great to see so many familiar faces and people in the community supporting local food. At the start of the day, I was delighted to look up and see my flute professor from CMU, Dr. Joanna White and her husband, Dr. Kennen White. They made the trip down to visit us at the festival. It made my day. This led to conversation about them visiting our farm, and we made it happen. Kennen was able to capture some beautiful photos from around the farm, and I plan on sharing several of them.
Thank you, Kennen!
