It was a warm spring day during planting season about a year ago. I was home with our 8-month-old son, most likely playing outside, when I got the call. It was my husband.
He was acting strange. Immediately my mind went to the worst place. What was wrong with him? Did something break? Did he get stuck? Did he need me to go get parts? Uff, I was hoping it wasn’t too bad because I know how breakdowns affect progress and add to stress…. ESPECIALLY in a year like 2019.
Anyways, he went on to tell me he was driving the planting tractor when all of a sudden, he heard something smoosh. It was his lunch. He ran over his lunch. He told me the contents of what was remaining resembled a smoothie… The call was because he was sheepishly asking me if I could maybe, possibly, bring him out another lunch. Momma to the rescue.
I thought that day, man… our life is pretty fun. Farming is all about family and having each other’s backs… for the big things and the small things like bringing out a new lunch. Farms don’t run with the farmer alone. I decided that day to start sharing our story on social media. I wanted to give a behind the scenes look and help people understand what we do and why we do it.
So, here we are a year later. I still cannot BELIEVE how many of you are interested in our story. But we are so very grateful for each and every one of you.
