Happy St. Nicolas Day!

Growing up on December 6th my parents would fill stockings my mom had hand crafted for each of us kids with little chocolates and a small gift in celebration of St. Nicolas Day. We all affectionately called it STOCKING DAY!! and were thrilled with a mini Christmas morning celebration and treat before Christmas! When Joe and I got married I insisted on keeping this tradition and filled him a stocking with specialty cheeses and beef sticks and jerky (he is not a chocoholic me :P). This year I got to follow in my mom’s footsteps and hand craft Titus his own stocking to fill each year! :D

Family held traditions give us lasting cherished memories and a warm sense of belonging as we share common practices. What are some special family traditions you enjoy?

He Arose

Happy Easter Friend! Today, we are taking it easy on the farm. I just finished morning chores and now have a short moment to write you this email before we bustle off to church. Thankfully we worked pretty hard yesterday to get all the chores done so today we can take some extra family time to celebrate this Easter Sunday.Of course there will be the Easter egg hunt this afternoon as we do everyday ;)However, we look forward to celebrating the magnificent miracle that happened 2,000 years ago. Our Lord, Jesus Christ arose from the death of his crucifixion with our family today. As many of you know we are a faith based family farm. This means we hold very closely our faith in everything we do. That said, I wouldn't be acting out of faith, if I didn't share His story as it reflects who we are and stand for. If you are willing, please watch this really cool poem that I found encouraging!It sent chills up my back! It's such a beautiful poem sharing what Christ accomplished with his death, burial, and then resurrection.  We are so thankful for his love and grace to save us. Choosing him as our savior vs our good deeds can uplift anyone from the bondage we face.  I hope you enjoyed the poem as well.  God bless you on this Easter Sunday.  The Wanda Family

How We Scale The Regenerative Farming Model

As a farmer who's been practicing regenerative agriculture for several years now, I firmly believe that it's not only scalable but also essential for the future of sustainable food production. When I look at my own journey and the transformations I've witnessed on my farm, I see immense potential for regenerative practices to be adopted on a larger scale.

Industrial Ag's Paradigm: Cheap Food, Unsustainable System

As a farmer who has witnessed firsthand the evolution of agricultural practices, I am compelled to shed light on the detrimental effects of the industrial agriculture model. While this system has promised increased efficiency and productivity, the hidden costs it imposes on our environment, society, and health cannot be ignored.
