TBF 028 :: Crawling the Farm Crawl, A Muddy Truck, and a Hard Lesson Learned

One of the coolest things that happens on our farm each year (and seven other area farms) is the Annual Farm Crawl. This is basically a big open house that covers eight area farms and allows the community to come out and learn more about what we are doing ... how we are doing it ... and why we are doing it! We were really blessed by the fact that our farm just happened to be along the route of the Farm Crawl so after a few years we were able to join in the fun. But, the greatest part of the event is that it allows us to not only tell our story, but also show our story to our friends, customers, and people who hadn't even heard of our farm until that day. In today's episode I spend some time talking about what the Farm Crawl is and what makes it so great!

Besides all the work that was done on the farm this past week (pigs & chickens processed, lots of marketing done, chicken wagons being built, etc.) ... it also rained! Our area was beginning to creep through the various stages of drought, and although this wasn't a drought busting rain it does help the soul a little bit to see the rain puddling up in the drive.

We do farm crawls in this area too! But I'm always amused at the number of folks who will come down from Chicago (2 hrs north of us) while no one in our own town will participate. All of us could spend more time enjoying what our own local towns have to offer.
