Farmer Jake's Take: June

Well, it's almost July already, and June flew by. ​It's no surprise that it did, given how busy we've been on the farm lately. Just yesterday, a friend, Aaron, shadowed me on the farm to learn more about regenerative and pasture-based farming. He is interested in farming his grandparent's land and potentially raising elk and bison and planting many fruit and nut trees, eventually. He is very curious and full of inquisitive questions, and didn't seem to mind when I often answered "it depends", which gives me the impression that he has lots of promise as a farmer. My work schedule and commitment came up, and in our conversation, I told him with a smile

Farmer Jake's Take: May

May has come and is already almost gone, and the farm is feeling a bit weird. A bit off. Why?​ Well, some of the normal things that we expect this time of the year are here and keeping us plenty busy. Normal things like our farmers markets and calving season. The long days are welcome as we make the most of the daylight to get things ready for the season and prep for markets. But we're missing some pretty big hallmarks of this season

Farmer Jake's Take: April

April was my birthday month! I was fortunate enough to celebrate my 26th with two homemade meals- one with some college friends, and another with my immediate family. It really meant a lot to me to be able to bring some of my hardwork and values to the table and nourish some of the people that I care about with some of my grass-fed beef!
