Welcome! On this page you will find our farm journey and Blog.
Over the last couple of months, I have learned some important things in life. First make sure everyone in your boar is rowing, not drilling holes when you aren’t looking, second let go of the things not meant for you, so you there is room for the things that are, and Third you have more friends than you realize if you let them in.
When I shared about my divorce I was touched by all of the support and positive messages I received from my farm followers. Since then so many doors have opened up for me and the farm. After years of struggling the right people have come into my life and turned things around. Farm projects that have been on the back burner are being completed and many opportunities have opened up to expand and grow in many ways.
Just a couple small thing that are happening now.
The North field is being transitioned to back to productive pasture. The first step was planning a cover crop to help heal the soil. We used a mix of oats, barley, teff, pearl millet and clovers. When we were planning for this crop we found out using cover crops in our area and climate is sort of a no mans lands and very few people have experience with it so we had to wing it.
It grew well despite our drought and is providing good grazing for our new American Wagyu cattle. We will be taking deposits on our two steers in the next couple weeks. We also added a beautiful Red merle Border Collie to our family to help with the livestock. Her name is Dixie!
Here she is bringing the cattle in off the pasture.
We have started remodeling the little shop into a milk room and farm kitchen. So I won't have to haul my very heavy milk bucket to and from the milking barn. Making things just a little bit easier on the farm.
