We have committed the ultimate blogging sin: A long absence without a post. It is spring, which is the busiest time of the year here at the farm. Most of our days begin at daylight and end at dark. This, combined with the menial everyday tasks, leaves little times for extra activities. however, this is not an excuse. They say that true leaders recognizes their weak points and confronts them. They improvise, adapt, and overcome. This is our weak point. We will do a better job advocating for agriculture through our blog.
One of our goals in this blog is to advocate for agriculture. Agriculture is our passion and way of life, and we strive every day to promote its positive image. Even though we have been absent blogging, we have still been advocating for agriculture. This blog is a great tool to advocate with, but we still prefer talking to someone in person.
We have some exciting new projects going on here on the farm. Amanda is getting everything setup to raise mums to sell this fall. I decided to plant six acres of corn, which is something entirely new for me. We are working on completely redoing the genetics in our cattle herd. We will begin building a high tunnel in the next month, with the goal being to produce tomatoes in November and December.
We are looking every day for new ideas to add to the farm. One thought we have had was to do some short educational seminars on the farm. They could range from tomato production to a simple tour of the farm. If you are interested let us know.
One of the best things that we have discovered this year is the direction we want to take our farm in. In the future we will get an in depth post up about it.It is something new and different, and I think it will be part of the direction the future of agriculture is taking.
As always, if you have any questions feel free to ask. Thanks for Reading!
