Share Your Story

Not a day goes by that we are not educating and engaging in a conversation with someone about our farm. Just the other day, someone asked me about who takes care of the animals when it is so cold. They were amazed when I told them how we bundle up, and yes we sometimes get cold. But that is the responsibility that we as farmers undertook when we decided to go into this. I get excited when I think about telling my story. Where do I start? What do I tell them? Will they comprehend what I am telling them? It is so simple for us because we, as farmers, understand most facets of farming, even when we learn something new every day.
