Everyone thinks of springtime being the onset of new life around a farm. It turns out that "springtime" starts in the winter.  Our baby lambs and piglets start being born in January. Seeds need to be ordered by February. Placing an order for spring meat chicks in March is definitely too late to get first pick on the spring shipment dates. 

I'm ok with needing to think about springtime in January and February.  Over the past fast few years I've noti...

At the end of September we welcomed a new addition to the farm:  a baby boy.  This little farmer was a complete surprise and is a complete blessing.  I have to be honest, I'm not real sure how the farming thing is going to work out with a baby, but like all of us, we are simply going to take it a day at at time and be open to the joys along the way.

We just couldn't resist taking a few pictures of this little one with a nod to the farm he will grow...

I never set out to be a farmer. I was raised in a rural area and always loved being outside, but that isn't how it happened. I've always enjoyed playing in the dirt and gardening. My summer job in high school and throughout college was working in a garden nursery and I was always bringing home marginal plants to nurse them back to life.

It's sad, but some words just seem to loose their meaning over time.  They get watered down, convoluted, corrupted, or even hi-jacked by authorities to a narrow, legalistic definition.  I think this is especially true with words that become trendy. They become popular, over-used and everyone thinks they know what a particular word means, but do they?  The words used in the farming realm are no different.  I've been thinking about that a lot lately as we've...

It’s funny how you never know what may happen when you wake up in the morning –the unexpected turns and twists each day are usually what give us our stories, laughter and tears. Indeed, that is how a calf came to our farm two Sundays before Christmas. As we drove home from church we noticed a cow down in our neighbor's field. Sadly, it turned out the cow had died that morning despite the best efforts from the vet and had left behind a 3-day old calf. Our ne...

Some say "Go BIG or go home."When you live on 60 acres of farm land with dozens of animals, it seems big time. And the pumpkin that was delivered to the farm was no exception. An 820 pound pumpkin. BIG. 

My good friend Erica is a teacher in metro D.C. but she grew up on a farm in rural Ohio. Whenever she can, Erica comes out to the farm to get her "farm fix" and breathe the fresh air.  Her parents still work on various farm ventures one of which is grow...

Today's workout (WOD):  Unload hay wagon (approx. 120 bales x 40lbs) x 4.  Repeat after rest of field is baled.  There's really nothing more to say.  So happy we could help our neighbor bring the hay into the barn - looking forward to doing it again. #countrycrossfit
