The countdown is on…..not only for the start of a new year, but we are now less than one week away from our FIRST CSA pick up date! We are so grateful for the support that has been given to us as we start this new venture! As we sit and reflect on our year in 2016, we are realizing that this year has been an absolute whirlwind, filled with many ups and downs along the way! (Much like the year for every other farmer in America!) Dealing with the effects of the market crash from a couple years ago, as well as the effect from trade deals that have been made with other countries, farmers across the country have really been tested.  We are having to fight harder than ever to continue to make a living by doing what we love. As a result of these challenges that we were faced with, we made the decision in the spring to start selling our beef at local farmer’s markets, and that decision sparked a whole new business venture for us.  We have really loved our “farm to table” operation.  There is something so gratifying about providing farm raised, natural food to the members of our community and their families. We have always taken so much pride in farming, but having the chance to meet and form relationships with the people that we are helping to feed has been the icing on the cake. Thank you to all of our customers who have shopped local and supported local farmers like us! We are really looking forward to 2017 and all that the year will bring! Hope you all have a SAFE and HAPPY New Year!
