Today I felt like a REAL Farmer…
A few months in the making...Today we completed our grain silo project!
A very proud moment - That only a farmer can express! To live and love this life is so very very hard...so many obstacles!! Why did this project take months to complete...weather...always weather...if it’s wet and raining we are frozen till it dries to work on any project...except taking care of animals and milking..we need multiple dry days...first to find “ said” item...to learn all there is to know about them...and believe me there is a lot to know….then pile, spread and level enough gravel...tractor work..and then cement...first build proper form to sit silo..strength and weight included. Gather quotes, explain location, driveway and just the logistics of getting to my farm..what a hassle...SO - Here we are today!
A beautiful 17 foot, 8 ton holder, with slide out, new footings and cover!! GRAIN SILO!!
An amazing sense of responsibility and pride!! To be able to feed our animals the highest quality feed at a better price!

What is perfection!!
First definition is a secular view and the second is biblical - Amazing!!
Perfection is a state, variously, of completeness, flawlessness, or supreme excellence. The term is used to designate a range of diverse, if often kindred, concepts. These have historically been addressed in a number of discrete disciplines, notably mathematics, physics, chemistry, ethics, aesthetics, ontology, and theology.
The meaning of perfection in the Bible relates to a state of completeness or absolute wholeness. Biblical perfection involves freedom from fault, defect, or shortcoming. In the New Testament, a Greek term for “perfection” can also mean “maturity.”. The Bible expresses perfection in at least three different contexts: the perfection of God, the perfection of Christ, and the perfection of humans.
And then there is MY definition!! - LOL
When your soap cuts are perfect - but not too perfect - still a few edges to bevel and smooth out.
Y’all I’ve been doing this a looooonnnng time…..Never ceases to amaze me!!
Never gets old!!
Love your faithful soap maker, goat herd lover!! Sara White

Yes - Here we are marching into July - Our beautiful summer Blue skies! 6/30
The devil has been working hard in our lives this year...and he comes with many faces on...delays, weather..obstacles all the time! You'll have no idea how hard we work...spend 16 hours with me - you'd throw the work gloves back at me and call me crazy! True Story!!
As we come upon A patriotic holiday of spirit, patriotism, and independence - Think about those words and what they mean - What is the American dream? What is independence?
It's what we do every day....and it comes at a high cost! I reflect on these things...and smile with a sense of accomplishment and pride. Grateful to live in USA
**** We hope to inspire, educate and encourage others**** To us this is living through a moral compass. We are all different and come from different places...We leave our judgment for a much high power than us..
Enough of my Soapbox.....Updates!
Our hearts swell and my cup runneth over - We finish up kidding season very late this year - with a 100% success (live) rate! For 2021 we have 34 kids to love and care for!!
