This summer, we did a family video that highlights the large amount of stuff we do on our little farm. We stay very active with various agricultural endeavors because we enjoy them and we want our children to learn life’s lessons from an agricultural perspective. And no time is better to be around a farm than the bountiful harvest season.
We are currently gearing up for Christmas tree season and have been trying to help my family with a dramatic expansion of our gift shop building. We also have a pen full of meat chickens that will be ready for market in a couple of weeks and we are still feeding some bottle lambs. This is Fairfield County Fair week as well. Kristin is the poultry superintendant and Campbell will be helping show sheep in the Open Show and competing in the Sheep Lead. It will be a fun, but wild week.
The Horned Dorsets did very well in the Open Show and our daughter finished a fantastic second in her class. The final fair of the season is almost over and we are all ready for a nap.
