Here we are again! It’s that time of year for us when the rubber hits the road and we set out looking for customers to enjoy our labor of love.
We kept our herd small again this year while we get our watering system established, so we only have 5 cows available to the public.
This is the part that always makes me anxious if I’m being honest. We lovingly grow our calves, but now we need to find the customers to enjoy them. We never have trouble finding customers, but still, it makes me nervous. I have a feeling that part of this process will never go away.
This time of year also makes me sad. The cows develop personalities and we name them a lot of the time so it’s sad to see them go. The part that gets me by is knowing they were loved while they were here, and now they will provide nourishment to others.
On a happier note, if you follow along with us in Instagram and Facebook, then you probably know that Aisle is quite the celebrity here on the farm. He’ll soon be expanding his reach and will be stealing hearts of folks all around Pennsylvania as “Mr. December”. What I mean is he’ll be featured as December in the Pennsylvania Grazing Lands Coalition’s 2019 calendar. 😊 This is the shot you’ll see:
Such a stud muffin….. this was taken last winter while he was out enjoying the snow.
Anyway! That’s it for now on our end! If you have any questions or are interested in reserving some of our beef, please let me know!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season! And thank you for supporting your local farms!
