How 150 cows can save a farm and how you can help

A quick story. In 2013 we bought our first farm and house. Despite a home inspection, 2 years after moving in, the house was condemned by the county due to mold and lack of structural integrity. We found someone willing to owner finance our current farm with the understanding that we would do a deed in lieu of foreclosure and a 5 year term with the ballance due at that time. Unfortunately, the bank foreclosed making us inelligable for a traditional loan to refinance. We have just one year left to save the farm. Here are some of our plans and how you can help!  Fill your freezer If we can sell 150 beef in 12 months, we can save...

Supporting small farms matters.  When we went down to California in February the water pump went out in San Diego. We went to the store and bought a bunch of water jugs and just kept putting water in and nursed it to Anaheim where our family lives. Sunday we did a late christmas with family (so fun). Monday, Chuck woke up at 6 am to go the my dad’s mechanic shop so that Chuck could do the water pump. Supposed to be a 2 hour job and he was trying to get out before they opened. Once he got the pump off it turned into a 15 hour job and there was a problem with the timing belt. He finally got back...
