This past year we have watched Isaac turn from just a teenage boy into a man. A very big part of me wants to hold on to him for forever, but when I look at him, I no longer see my little boy. He really is a man just biding his time...waiting for the next step in life.
It makes me sad...but makes me glad at the same time...
Isaac turns 17 tomorrow, so of course I had to sit him down for his annual question and answer session.

We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
