C.S.A is Community Supported Agriculture So…a couple of special dates are coming up. One is my birthday….. I know, they come around faster every year! The other is the the one year mark on our new CSA model. We transitioned late last year to a more monthly, subscription based model and broke it up so… Read More

Never seen your face. “I’ve never even seen your face!” – A customer. That is because I was ashamed. How can I share my passion with you when I’m so clearly not the poster child for healthy living? I’m smiling here and for the first time ever, comfortable and happy in my own skin. Am… Read More

Just park it for me. Ranch kids get asked to do a ton of things, early. Fetch this, hold this animals head, find baler twine. Use to using all manner of 4 wheel drive equipment, you have to learn a new skill set when you revert back to a two wheel drive van. Cole was… Read More

What are Snow Days on the Ranch? Monday had us shipping almost all of the CSA shares out along with the regular orders. Snow started late Tuesday and on and off throughout the rest of the week. With no one coming, a rare thing indeed, Wednesday was a perfect snow day. The guys headed out… Read More

History…. Totally missed last weeks letter to you. Sunday was a blip on the radar…. soup made, off to church, back home for soup, bread and cheese and then off to see a niece practice her figure skating, back home, checked the animals, let the dogs run and back to feed the stoves.
