Boy... have we been busy! Construction is nearing completion and we should be applying for our Grade A license soon! :-) The washable walls are up in the milking parlor, almost half of the milk room now has washable walls too.
I thought it might be fun to share with you a before picture. I just found this on Andy's disk..... and even I was surprised at how far we have come. This is a picture of the milking barn before we started construction.
We have been blessed to have the help and support of good friends. Speaking of support..... whoa!
We have even put the kids to work! Here is a shot of Jamie helping Javier mud the ceiling in the milk room.
Not to be outdone Alexander set out to help with the driveway for customers to pull close to the store.
My Mom was here for the past week. She set her self to the task of decorating the farm store as well as the house!! I think the store looks great with the additions of a rug, pictures, and counter top. Thanks Mom!
New chicks arrived in July. They are growing nicely and hopefully next week we can get them out in pasture.
The heat this week has been unbearable! The cows have been seeking shelter in the trees. This is a shot of Blossom.. right before she birthed our new heifer calf " Clover".
Hopefully by my September update we will be all done with construction, the weather will be a bit cooler and life will settle down a bit. But for now... I am off to help Andy milk those gorgeous cows!
