3 Generations Down

When I decided to farm, I became the third generation of our family to farm the 60 odd acres. All three generations currently still live on the farm, too. The farm has certainly seen many changes in those three generations. It has only been within the last 5-7 years that the land has become fully utilized by us again and pasture became the primary crop.

What makes this multi-generational aspect so significant and exciting is that for the first time, a living could theoretically be made on this property. The fact that a family could survive on only 60 acres in our day and age is quite amazing. This is considering that many farmers run thousands of acres and still need off-farm jobs to survive. It is only because of the gracious support of our customers that this is even possible. Thank you all!
