Preparing for a New Year

It has been a mild winter so far. Ink farrowed just before Christmas with 60 degree daytime temperatures, but hold on. Our high today was 28 and tomorrow 18. We have been working on fencing and a few small winter projects.  The hens are holding their own and next year is on our minds. New chicks, farrowing, planting, and planning. As we make plans budgeting is a major focus. We are always looking make improvements and they always cost. To improve soil we are planning some major cover crops that can be lightly grazed and left to regenerate and build soil. The long term benifit should be amazing. We also have to budget our seed, packaging, and production expenses.

We wish you all a happy and prosperous new year.
