There’s always work to be done on a farm.
Each season brings it’s own set of jobs. Early spring is when you update your internet presence, and your marketing plans. You go to farm conferences, you attend workshops. You pour over seed catalogues and plan the garden, and, planting the seeds you’ve decided upon. You renew your farm memberships and certifications. There’s paperwork. There’s taxes. Time flies by!
And there’s livestock coming and going. Investing in new stock, selling some, sending some to market, and, yet more being born. That’s the fun part- the newbies! Little chicks and ducklings, piglets and kids. The brooders fill up, heat lamps go on, the little feeders are brought out of storage….
With the warmer weather there’s paddocks to be fenced, gardens to be prepared, housing to be cleaned up, repairs to be made. Busy busy busy!
And, like all families, there’s places to be, errands to run, dinner to be made, and downtime is needed to hang with the family. That is the best part of all, being home with the family.
