the farmers and their market are at rest.
doing important work every day
returning here each week to sell their bounty
sleep comes at a price.
‘if the farmer is poor, so is the whole country.’
October 12 is Old Farmers Day,
a day devoted to old farmers and their farming techniques.
how will you celebrate?
“let us not forget that the cultivation of the earth
is the most important labor of man.
when tillage begins, other arts will follow.
the farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization.”
The Running of the Goats at Sunflower Farm
After a day of grazing with the herd, our 44 Goat Babies go for a little adventure while their maaaaaas take a break and enjoy some grain in the barn. They love to run back and forth following their human friends! They often beat us on the way back! There is not much cuter than the pitter pat of all those feet. (Rest assured…Our goat kids are sold to great families in pairs as pets or future milking goats.)
