Things on the farm are going well. Well, they are growing.  Vegetables grew, livestock grew and so have sales.  Pickles sell, a lot.  And that is a good thing.

It is hard to believe that I started out with a traditional canner. One that holds 7 jars.  I started selling to family and friends. So a batch of 14 dill pickles was good.  Then I moved into a few stores and this spring updated to a bigger canner. It held fourteen jars.  Twice as many, twice as fast.  I now own an Amish canner that holds 30 jars and may need to get another one to keep things going.  Over 3,500 jars so far this year and things aren’t slowing.


These are small things that matter when you are growing a business.  Small things that save time and resources.  Small things that all of you have helped to purchase through your support of the farm.  So thank you for buying pickles, jams and pies.  You can actually see where your purchases go, we don’t own a yacht or even a dinghy but you are keeping this farm afloat and it is appreciated!!
