It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of running a farm operation some days. This is especially true during the fall harvest. I drove north on Sunday to drop off 3 steers and 2 hogs, then south on Tuesday to deliver 6 lambs. We headed east with 49 turkeys on Friday to finish up our holiday turkey season. On top of all that, we also had 4 markets this week!
But now that all that's behind us (aside from delivering all these turkeys), it's time to give thanks - to each of you. We are deeply humbled by the support and encouragement you give us, and we take seriously the trust you place in us to provide you and your family with daily sustenance.
Since a large portion of our poultry has graduated to freezer camp, things are much quieter around here. You don't realize it until they're gone, but 50 turkeys create quite a racket. Now we start to wind down to the shorter days of winter. We'll enjoy a few months of respite until the inevitable freeze arrives. It’s time to reflect on what worked, and what didn’t. It's time to count our blessings - the foremost of which is you. Without you, none of this would be possible.
PS: Hug a farmer.
That's when things get interesting - we mean it when we say they're free range. Once they're out of the tractor, it's time to strut!
