The countdown is on.
A few weeks ago we sent our last broilers in to the butcher. Chore time was cut in half when they left.
Recently we finished all planting and thus finished a whole category of work in the garden. Now when we harvest or remove a crop the bed is prepped for winter and tucked in.
Things are ending. The beef animals are on their last rotation through the pastures and recently turned a corner and are headed towards the final paddocks near the barn.
Things are finishing.
Of course, the work doesn't really END, it just changes. For instance, all those cows are not sold yet. They need to be or we are in trouble. So I might not spend as much time in the garden over the next few weeks, but I won't be relaxing. Sales, marketing, and outreach about our meat and why it matters to buy local and sustainably raised beef will be occupying my mind. We have to wear a lot of different hats around here.
And then there is the upcoming move. In case you have not heard, we are preparing to move this fall/winter. After five years of hard work trying to establish a farm business we are finally getting ready to put down roots on our own land where we can really get serious.
Its exciting and we will tell you more about
