April FreemanWe’ve been doing some re-thinking here on the farm.

When we first started farming, we were excited about the possibilities. We read lots of books, learned everything we could about sustainability, and plotted our course. Every day was fun and interesting.

And now, things are still fun and interesting. But there’s so much work.  Lately, we’re evaluating what’s most important. Of course, we still love the farm. But we want to continue loving the farm … and each other. So we’re making hard choices.

See, my husband works a full time job.

We have four kids. The kids are homeschooled and they have interests that aren’t just farm-related.

I work part time.
