I forgot a category, and I have something to add to it, too!
Work on Local Food Systems
We picked up more beef from our 4-H beef leaders, who sell from the farm. Nothing quite like Alberta Beef raised by your friends!
The Reluctant Farmer discovered that we can get bison meat from the beef family's neighbour, and the neighbour happens to be the person who purchased The Boy's market lamb at Achievement Day (and then gave it back to him in an act of amazing generosity!). We are happy to support his business, that's for sure!
And last but not least, I finalized the sale of our first two lambs that are going from the packers directly to a customer. Now that's exciting!
Something very satisfying about being in business for yourself.ReplyDelete
