From Overwhelm to Opportunity- 2020 in Retrospect

After 3 weeks of lambing, I’m are feeling good about the lambs and a bit tired too (I blame day savings time!) I can recall somewhat hazily, feeling similarly a year ago when we decided to pull out of winter market entirely and instead offer pick-up at the farm. I can vividly recall my sense…

Sunday mornings are generally when we let ourselves sleep in a little bit and last Sunday was no different. But, upon waking we realized with a groan that it was daylight savings time!
