Summer Harvest Celebration! - August 4th, 2017

Everyone on our farm is flat-out exhausted by this time of year.  Since February, we've survived Spring calving, then planting & spraying & fertilizing, then long days (and nights) of mowing & baling hay, just finally wrapped up wheat harvest, and are staring red-eyed at double cropping and more hay. 

But we are thankful.  Another successful, completed harvest and no limbs or lives were lost.  The to-do list is slowly diminishing and we are looking forward to celebrating our hard work! We hope you'll join us!

Here's something else worth celebrating:  The SAVE Farm is making progress in their mission of offering training and healing to veterans interested in joining the agricultural industry.  We are excited to have retired Army Col. Gary LaGrange as our guest speaker for the evening meal.  Gary is considered to be the driving force behind The SAVE Farm and will share their vision, progress, and answer questions.  All proceeds from the Harvest Celebration will be donated to this cause.  According to their website, The SAVE Farm's mission is:

"To provide a training farm with an adjacent clinic, assist servicemembers and veterans to transition, to find purpose and meaning in life and enable them to learn valuable vocational skills to meet the demand for agricultural ownership, employment, or other advanced schooling. Facilitate healing for those in need and place those trained on working farms."

Fall Harvest Feast - November 18th, 2016

For farmers in this area, fall harvest is always the year's greatest test of perseverance.

You have to admire the grim determination our farmers have as, already exhausted from the many months of long, hard days behind them, they face the drawn-out, all-hands-on-deck, daily grind of fall harvest.  Every plant is found and picked clean, load after load of grain is hauled and dumped, augers are turned on and off and moved around, tractors & combines and semis are fueled, over and over, back and forth, all day long.  Day. After. Day. After. Day.  

(All while still tending to the regular chores of feeding and caring for livestock - a full-time job in itself.)

Though this year comes with extra worries as we deal with record-low prices, if you listen closely in our direction, you'll still hear a huge, collective sigh of relief when the last field is finished.  We've worked our hardest, done our best all year, and THE JOB is finished.  We'll be ready to celebrate, and we want you to join us!
