We’re happy to have once again hosted some amazing guests who have us believing that we are heading down the right path!!! This week the path seems a little obstructed, but we’re planning to continue plugging along in this direction. It is one of those weeks where we’re exhausted as we begin cleaning up the fields in preparation for planting cover crops. Normally we have much of our cover crops planted by mid September, but since we aren’t able to pay for help, we’re a little behind in getting that done. We had the sweetest family stay in the barn loft and as Julie was providing a tour, they inquired about how many folks were working the land, to which Julie replied only she and her husband. They were astounded that we were “trying” to take care of this entire farm ourselves. Julie was incredibly thankful to them for staying, because she commented that she has hope in one day being able to hire out some of the work as more folks choose to stay at MHO. It was one of those questions, where you step back, look around at all the chaos and think to yourself that selling the farm seems like it would relieve a lot of the workload.
You will probably need to white list our email to receive correspondence from us because we have changed our email from farmer@MountainHarvestOrganic.com to Farmer@MountainHarvestOrganics.com (our email is organics plural).
Your Farmers (and cleaning staff),
Carl and Julie
