Legally I can't sell anyone anything other than live animals. I'm down to 4 as of now and have asked some folks at work who are supposed to let me know this week. I'm sure there will be more after these so when the time comes we'll try to work out a plan. Jill,

Have you figured out what you will do about the pigs? I live in the Cincinnati area, and would be interested. Could you let me know? I have an email link on the right hand side of my blog, if you are still looking to get rid of some! I just came across your blog, and it is very interesting!

A little tractor theraopy with the gravel, huh. I enjoyed reading the colume. There is frost on the pumpkin in Dixie also.

Thanks for the warm memories I'm enjoying this morning...as good as a warm bowl of oatmeal on a cold winter morning. Oh, my God, do I have flashbacks of growing up on the farm!

As a Blogger I take on the name of Hillbilly willy because I truly enjoy the life of rural Arkansas, but as a professional I am an agriculture lender by day. Many times I get the opportunity to help people like you. It is then that I truly find my job as a blessing. I do realize that your blog is sponsored by Mahindra Tractors, but I find it refreshing that through commercial appeal that they will help a story as yours get told. Keep up the good work. 10-4 Willy I admire young men like you.

When my ex and I split we agreed that we both wanted to be parents to the children and that we would not try to keep one another from that. We've tossed around the idea of a pumpkin patch for a while now. Where children could come and be a part of the farm. Never really given much thought to having grown ups around a lot. I do want to share the experience at some point if it can be profitable. We also thought of turning the cabin into a bed and breakfast. Insurance becomes an issue if you have other folks around much. A local bed and breakfast "The Farm House Inn" could only get insurance at affordable rates if the geusts were not involved in any activities on the farm other than gathering eggs. We've also considered offering the local sheriff use of part of the farm as a "sheriff's ranch" Cat,

If, as it appears, you are truly working, farming, and raising 3 kids on your own simultaneously you are REALLY amazing! What a nice legacy you are giving your children. Ever consider offering "pay to play" vacations as a source of side income? You offer a set period of time (a week or whatever) for a fee and during that time your "guest" participates in the work and lives like a farmhand. The fee offsets the extra time you spend supervising and redoing their work LOL. Just a thought... would be a cool experience for a city child who never sees a vegetable in its original form... Hoping your year goes well, Cat What a nice blog! If, as it appears, you are truly working, farming, and raising 3 kids on your own simultaneously you are REALLY amazing!
