Throughout the winter, we will be researching and drawing up more plans for our organic farm operation, and creating a detailed business plan that includes our mission on giving back. I wish I could go into detail now about our philanthropic plans, but I certainly do not want anything leaked before drawing up the proper plans. Needless to say, Michael and I have been allowing our minds to go wild with the possibilities of running our own operation.
The goal in the spring is to set up bees and construct bat boxes down near our small garden. Michael has a Yanmar EX3200 tractor that has become his most favorite toy. With this toy, he has taken to removing trees and extending the usable land on our small acreage. It is our goal to utilize the land we currently have to start our operation in hopes of getting our name out into the public arena. Besides, it is currently a sellers market, and we are in no position to purchase land.
Michael is still planning on returning to school hopefully in the winter time frame. In the mean time, we are researching as much as we can pursuant to farming and running a business. We are trying to pace ourselves while maintaining the passion for this endeavor because the process does take a while when it is from the ground up.
Until next time
