It seems that FINALLY the bad mojo has left the farm! Woohoo! This is truly a reason for excitement!!!
We are still waiting on 5 more Randall girls to calve this year. It's looking like the farm tour guests are going to get to see some brand spanking new calves when they come visit!
My Hiland Feed business is growing SO rapidly that it's been hard to keep up! Last month I sold more than 17,000 pounds of feed. This month I've ordered about 23,000 pounds of feed. That's incredible!! This is with no advertising! All world of mouth! It's absolutely phenomenal!!! So I'm sure you're asking why I don't advertise... well there's a simple reason for that. I didn't have a forklift. Every month I would hand upload pallets of feed off the semi when it came. Every month I felt like I would die. Last month when it was over 8 tons, I said enough is enough. Yesterday, my forklift was delivered. Yes it used. Very used. It's from like 1960. It needs some maintenance, but that's ok - I can deal with that. It works - and I don't have to lift 50 pound bags over and over and over again. I'm happy!Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with the fact that in a little over a year and half that I have been able to build this business and farm to what it is already. Can you imagine where we will be in 5 years?!?!? Wow.
The farm tour is right around the corner. You really do need to plan to come out and tour these southern Kenton County Farms. You won't be disappointed! It'll be a great day for everyone young or old and even in between. I promise that will be a lot of animal interaction here at our farm!
We are still needing as much help as people can give here on the farm to get ready. We are really far behind and there is so much to do! Yes I'm begging for anyone to come help!
Dan Masters, owner of Hiland Naturals, will be here on the farm the day of the tour. This will be a great time to come and learn about Hiland and ask Dan himself about his feed.
I'm out of time - but wanted to share one more cool thing with you. It's not everyday that you get a helicopter to land in your fields. This happened to us last week. It was pretty cool since this helicopter had a really really big chainsaw hanging from it. It takes a lot of talent for a pilot to be able to land it! Here's a couple pictures for you to enjoy.
