Welcome, Sam and I have wanted to do this for a long time, however it has always been so busy with the kids and we are always taking in new animals and expanding. We finally realized that it's never not going to be busy and really that's how we like it!
This past year.
Both Sam and I have lost our father's this past year. Even though you know deep down inside that you will lose them one day you are never prepared for that loss. It is like losing a limb, a part of yourself and just like that in blink they are no longer here. I cannot seem to fathom living a life without those who have taught us most. We only hope that one day our children will look back on us with the same admiration we have for our parents.
How can so much beauty, come from so much loss. We have survived a global pandemic so far, healthy children, most of our family members still with us and tears for those who did not make it. Looking around we cannot help but feel lucky we have been given the skills to grow our own food, and produce our own means. We as a family only hope to share that with you. Yes profits have to be made in order to keep up with the quality standard we have set for ourselves but that is only to ensure that everything produced here is at it's absolute best when it leaves. The work is hard and with jobs and five kids its chaotic making sure everyone has what they need but when you stand back and look at this view every second is worth the work.
