We’re having another one of those moments where we look around us and want desperately to move ahead. To move forward, to take that last step. To get to the real farm. To never have to move again if we don’t want to. To put down real roots, and do what we both know we were made to do. To be farmers. To feed people, to grow our farm and our brand. To raise animals, and grow gardens. To share our passion for eating real good food with other people. To get a dairy cow. Or ducks. Or pigs. Or beef cattle. Or a horse, for no other reason then I’ve always always wanted one.
I get so inspired when I talk to other farmers. Farmers who are farther ahead on the journey. They have shared wisdom with me, and inspired me to dream big about what we want to grow into. They have also shared food that they have produced. It is by far the best I have ever eaten. There is no way that I want to turn back now.
I know there is a season for everything. I know we have enough land here to make do. I know that there are homesteaders out there with far less land, and they are doing far more than we have. I know all of this. I know that it has been a long road to get here, and I know it hasn’t been easy, and I know it won’t be easy to get where we want to be.
I just wish it would happen a little bit faster.
Thus this has become my mantra. I just keep repeating it and pushing through.
Some people want it to happen.
Some wish it would happen.
Other’s make it happen.
