Happy New Year! I see this as a great opportunity to start fresh with new goals and new dreams for the farm.
Last year proved to be a difficult but wonderful year for us. First the price of feed went up about 15% and then later in the year the price of straw doubled in price and the price of hay tripled. We also had a butcher gouged us last year on processing charges. With all that say asbout last year, here are the goals for our farm this year.
Our number one goal for the new year is grow the farm so that I don't have to work an off the farm job in the future.
The second goal is to expand our CSA shares from 30-50 shares this year.
The last goal is to publish a monthly newsletter. I feel that it is important that people know what is happening on the farm. The newsletter will also have a recipe section where I will post recipes that can be used with products we sell on the farm.
Now with my goals listed, I wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2013!
