Rights & Responsibilities

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Thursday September 09, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

What beautiful days on the farm. Haying is finished until maybe later October, when the opportunity of Late Hay Intoxication occurs in me, when there is an indian summer for oh, 5 days or so, the trees are turning beautiful colors. I will cut some 4th crop...

What the world needs now

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Tuesday September 07, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I sure do like hearing "Scott, you should be a writer". I do have this thing going on inside, and I am writing about all this craziness that has surrounded our life for the past couple years. Crazy situation us wacky Trautman's find ourselves in,...

Why you think you so special, Scott?

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Friday September 03, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

"Mild mannered" "Reserved" "Go with the flow" "Go along to get along kinda guy" "Apathetic" Not likely descriptions of me - or not from anyone that has taken the time to know me - at all. And it's not...

An Explaination, A Mission, A Passion and a Questi...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Wednesday August 25, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I have, over the past few days, specifically, made it a point to be grateful. To look around me, and reflect, how beautiful life is, and how many gifts I truly receive each day. A friend of mine, Tim Williams, told me this, he learned it somewhere, that if you...

Suppose I had a vision....

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Saturday July 24, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

It has been quite some time since I have written here. I like to joke that I time travel. I could as easily joke that I have been abducted by aliens. What does that mean? Time passes, where were you, what did you do. I'm certain I was here, wasn't I? But time...

Fathers Day....

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Sunday June 20, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I received my fathers day gift yesterday. It was in the form of time spent with my younger son, Quinn, fixing the round baler. I'd split two belts at their join point, which is where they break apart. Not a big deal; a process to cut the ragged edge off, put...

Look into the Future...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Tuesday June 15, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

Perspective. Of time; of place; of relationships. Where are we at. Where are we going. What is life going to be like, in the future. For me: I sure don't know. When you have a State that is bent on your extermination, like DATCP is to family farms, and an...

We will not go away willingly....

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Friday June 04, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I have written a variation of this to several people over the past days. It is current, it is exciting, I would tell everyone, but it is especially important for me to tell - because it is hope. It is positive energy, not the negative of DATCP's brutal attacks...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Monday May 17, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I wish you the best! What a nice thing to say. Hoping, believing, that good things will happen. That's not what our dairy industry is saying to Wisconsin farmers, is it? Die. Give us all your money, then die. Dairy industry record profits; 2300 dairy...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Friday May 14, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

It's day break and the sun is coming up over the ridge, it's a clear and crisp 22 this morning. I don't think it even made it to 42 yesterday. Yesterday the whole day was cold and windy not a great day to be outside digging beds. So instead I spent the morning...

Big Days!

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Wednesday March 17, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

Time.  Never enough! Wasted time. Valuable time. Learning time. Action time. Once it goes by, it's gone. And we've all experienced "boy that's x amount of time I can't get back". Wasted time. As farmers - just as I recognized as an...

I have taken time away from the raw milk movement. We have much on our minds that needs our focus. The survival of our farm. Money. Need it. Working towards getting our milk paid for - into artisan cheese. Got the milk; got the artist, got the tank, what...
