Life on the farm has been very busy since our last post. Larry has been working so hard to build a wash station/walk-in cooler, while farming and preparing for the fall and winter seasons. We have been going to the Rainbow Blossom farmers market every Sunday and have really enjoyed seeing our faithful customers week after week. Our Salad mix has been our biggest seller and we are so thankful to God that we have had the Spicy Salad Mix and the Not-So Spicy Salad mix consistently to share.
Here is a time-line of photos showing the progress of the wash station/walk-in cooler. It has been so amazing to watch its development week after week! Larry has built many skateboard ramps…this is his first time ever constructing a barn/building.
The roof in scheduled to go on, with the help of a fellow farmer friend that we met at the farmers market, on Tuesday. We are so excited to share the pictures with the pretty new red roof!
We have had so many challenges and even more blessings on the farm as we continue to press ahead. We received a phone call form a close family member that he was impressed by God to help us to purchase a van for our farm. What! help us buy a van…we can’t afford that right now! Was our immediate response….just a few weeks after the call we were packing up our Subaru for market and could not fit all of the produce along with the tables and tent for market. This was confirmation that we were hindering a blessing that God was trying to pour out on us. So without further ado…meet the new farm van!
Other exciting news on the farm….This is the first time we have ever grown sweet potatoes and, well I guess you could say it was a success…
Other fun farm happenings…processing…processing…processing!
Larry and I both have grown so much as a family on this farm the past two seasons. This is the first time that we have worked on a farm knowing that we are building with the intention of staying. What a blessing this experience has been and we would not be on this farm without the support of all of our friends, family, customers and loved ones. This is a picture of my sister and her four children at market.
Lastly, we want to end with a picture of the elk farm that is adjacent to our farm…this is the time of year the the elk bugle and we enjoy the daily music coming form theses beautiful animals. Only God would place us on a farm in Southern IN that neighbors an 800 acre elk farm. We are thankful for this beauty and for the opportunity to serve our community with fresh, clean, nourishing produce! Sincerely, Your Farmers The Lesher’sBack to Blog
