So this will be my first blog post ever, so for any pro bloggers please forgive my armature posting. Also my two professions are engineering and farming, oh and I am from the south so y’all will have to forgive my poor syntax. That being said hopefully you can learn from our mistakes so you can make different ones, and learn from our successes and repeat them.
I am going to skip the “who we are and what we do”, that is what the rest of the website is for. So, today I will just give a brief farm update. Next week I will share a mistake that involves a tractor and a fair share of frustration.
Farm Update: Today is September 10th 2016 and we got the first snow of the year. We currently have 2 batches of 75 birds on pasture. Fortunately the ground temp is still high enough that their water did not freeze. Doing chores in the snow and dark this morning, however, does make me excited that our processing date for half the birds is this Thursday and the other half only 3 weeks away. Next year I will make sure that operations are finished by mid-September. The egg layers are still laying away and snug in there coop with loads of fresh straw. The rest of the farm is buttoned up for winter. Also I got to give the new chainsaw a workout last weekend. We still need a little more firewood, but we are well on our way.
