With rain on the way, Hubby got up early and took Knox with him on a mission. A mission he has been wanting to do for the last three years. The mission that has gotten away from him due to time and lack of opportunity. But now the time and opportunity have jumped in his lap and he is living his mission!
Hubby is planting wheat!
I know it sounds crazy. I have listened to the dream take shape. Now I get to watch the kid glitter in his eye! He has had the fields plowed for over a week now. As soon as he plowed, we got over 1/2 inch of rain and three days of no sun. This caused the field to be to wet for him to plant.
Now we are not complaining about the rain! Lord knows we need it! Hubby gambled on the weather reports and lost that round. But he gambled again and won....
Hopefully, in about 4 months time, I'll be posting pictures of him threshing his first wheat crop! This means fresh wheat for us.
K and H FarmsFall 2012 For the past 2 years on K and H Farms, we have been growing pastured poultry. Our chickens are grown in bottomless pens in our pastures, scratching, eating bugs and grass while enjoying the fresh air and sunshine! You will find our chickens to be much healthier and happier than the average chicken. They are fed grains and minerals but get between 20 to 30% of the nourishment from the pasture they live on. Each day they are moved to new pasture. Their flavor is richer and more vibrant than those bought in the grocery store...our chickens actually have a flavor! These are the chickens that we proudly put on our own dinner table! Starting the Spring of 2013, K and H Farms is going to offer Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) to our friends, family and community! This allows you to own a “share” of our chickens. Each CSA will last for 3 months. You will come to our farm once a month and pick up your chicken. You pay upfront (or by payments) a set price for your “share” of chickens each month. These will be whole chickens that you can freeze until you are ready to feed the family or just yourself! We do not cut up the chicken but will gladly show you how to when you pick up your order. There will be 3 CSA pick-ups for 2013...
