We had a discussion in the car this weekend about how we are no longer grass or cattle farmers...but we now are mud farmers.
And the harvest is plenteous!
While California is devastated by dry conditions, we are knee deep in mud and muck.
We travelled the state this Thanksgiving weekend and saw tons of crops still not harvested because the farmers can't get their equipment out in the fields.
We even saw pictures of friends' combines buried in the fields.
It has been a rough fall and harvest season here in Ohio.
Even though we don't farm crops and don't have to worry about getting combines stuck, we did have to change plans for our final cutting of hay.
Now that our growing season is done, we are still farming and caring for our animals.
However...that too has been an unusual challenge.
This was our 4th year to attend the North American International Expo.
âThis year was different for us because not only were we exhibiting, but we were also in charge of the Miniature Hereford show.
It was a very busy week, but it was a good week....mostly.
Pack It Up
We leave for Louisville, Kentucky this week to show at the North American International Livestock Expo.
This is the first show of the season for us.
We never feel ready enough, but ready or not, hear we come.
We spent the weekend making final preparations.
I mean Daniel....
Got a new toy.
They decided that they just had to have a drone.
They really wanted to take aerial pictures of the farm for the website...in other words...they were trying to sell me on it.
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. 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.
