Snake Sighting

Snake sighting

Farm News

As the truck and trailer came to a skidding stop on the gravel road, I jumped out of the truck, then remembered to turn off the diesel engine in the hope of getting some good audio of the hissing. That glimmer on the end of the serpent was what I suspected, a rattle,-- each nub the result of one skin shed. It was a beautiful and huge rattlesnake, the back half still in the gravel road, the front starting to make its way up a bank on the side of the road.

Celebrating Mom Entrepreneurs

Celebrating Mom Entrepreneurs

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we want to celebrate and honor the moms who have started and run their own family businesses! The time, determination and perseverance to start a small business, not to mention a food company where creating and perfecting recipes and packaging are months to years-long steps in the process, are monumental. We think these feats are amazing and the women who have accomplished them even more so.
