Hi there friends
The leaves are have changed and are almost all gone. The air is crisp and cool. We’ve started out coal stove. Next week we’re making apple cider. Fall is here. Today was a lovely fall day here in North Central PA. Things are starting to slow down on the farm front and I couldn’t be happier! I’m ready to have my Wednesdays back and my Fridays back! They guys have been hard at work to get all the farm projects wrapped up. We have fully functional fences on all of our rental properties and animals on all of them. We’ve dubbed them the A Flerd and the B Flerd. (Flerd = flock+herd) We processed our last batch of broiler chickens last Wednesday and this week is the first of 2 Turkey weeks. There are a few projects we’d like to get underway before winter hits full force. We shall see what becomes of those plans.
I have a few Tupperware parties scheduled in the rest of the month of October, so I’m going to blink and its going to be November! Then THANKSGIVING AND THEN CHRISTMAS….. phew I can’t even think about all of that.
I’m glad that the 2014 chicken season has come to a close and that we’re inching our way to a more relaxed pace. It’s been a great season. We’ve been so blessed with our two interns Glenn and Billy. Both are fine young men who love the Lord and are seeking to glorify Him. They have learned so much in the time they’ve been here and I am so proud to hear them talk about why they believe in what we do!
Glenn’s family came down to visit from Connecticut over the weekend and to hear him tell his family why our food is better than the food at the grocery stores was so refreshing! They actually do get it! We’ve taken many an evening over our dinner table and talked about why we eat what we eat and care about what we produce and eat. It’s all Scripturally based and I believe all Christians should be the biggest environmentalists out there.. (but that’s another topic) but to hear them actually articulate this info to their own families was wonderful. They have tasted the difference, and know what they’ve raised is good and that’s it’ good for them and others. Glenn’s family took home a lot of meat let me tell you! I know where I came from and where I am now are two totally different places and I am so glad to have made the switch to healthy eating now!
If you have questions about anything involving what we produce, raise, believe or do please don’t hesitate to ask.
Till next time
