This weekend we dug three beds of peanuts, which ended up being a good task because of the warm weather that's still enveloping us. Lifting them out of the ground goes pretty quickly. Once dug, we shake the soil off and take the plants in their entirety back to the barn, where we turn some… Continue reading Farm update – 9/16/2018

We did have lots of small-to-medium pecan branches come down, but that was to be expected. We lost power for about three hours during the… Continue reading Farm update – 9/17/2017
