July 16th, 2015

To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.  This week we have had to adjust to several changes, some good, some hard.  Most significantly, Sydney decided to end her stay with us for personal reasons and took her leave yesterday.  She really loved the goats and cattle and was a great help while she was here.   All the best, Syd!

Simultaneously, our grandson, Noah, left for military service with the Army National Guard on Monday.  Noah was interim livestock intern while waiting for Darcy Deaton (due 8/24).   To top it off, we were expecting another WWOOFer last week who never showed up, so we are pretty short-handed.  I am milking every morning with Mykah or Jaryn doing a lot of the bottling, and Stephen is taking the evening shift.

There is good news:  Casey King, a recent NC state grad, is going to join us next week (along with George) as Marketing Intern.   Maybe we will get our website and marketing info updated and broadcast where it needs to go.

The push for this next week is to get our lawns and borders trimmed and the cows sorted out up at East.   We have to (a) get equipment fixed (b) finish the pasture at East and (c) corral the bulls we are taking to the beauty parlor next Monday.

After milking this morning  I played hookey from farm work and went hiking with my daughter Amy.  We hiked an 11-mile section of the Eno River trail, a nice easy jaunt.   And that’s today at Woodcrest Farm.
