We've been doing quite a bit of tours lately - 3 tours last week! It's pretty cool because folks are finding us. Sometimes its through Localharvest.org and sometimes through this blog.
The hardest part for me to explain to people is that we are a small operation. small....
Meaning we'll likely sell 3 steers a year, 25 lambs, 20 pigs, 400 chickens, 12 CSA shares and 600 dozen eggs. Now if we are lucky- we'll break even this year and cover our expenses. It will take another year or 2 before we build up and get above break-even. This is why most farmers we know have a regular job outside the farm. It is possible to make a little bit of money- it will just take a few years to get there and lots of hard work.
From a distance up the hill, our farm looks just gorgeous.
Here's to getting to break-even this year!
Call us for a tour, we'd love to show you around and sell you some fantastic meat and eggs!
