Yes this is the question I keep asking myself! As if playing the role of mom, wife, and farmer aren't enough! And how can I forget positions of marketing and advertising! I have a hard enough time keeping up with emails, updating our website, Facebook posts and returning phone calls regarding orders....yet now I've have the "yearning" to start a Blog!
Honestly, part of me feels like: well, no one is going to read this so why take the time to struggle and write (type) something into a blog. But then a bigger part of me has the desire to share my passion for agriculture with those who are so far removed from where their food comes from and how it is produced....ohh, and WHO produces it! So really I feel that if I can share that passion, educate and perhaps even help connect the consumer with the less then 2% of the farmers in this country who provide the food on their table then my time trying to figure out this blog "thing" will be worth it!
While I'm not sure what I should share or what may be of interest to read and Lord knows my grammar will not be perfect, but I do hope you get a few laughs and maybe even learn something out of the crazyness of life found here on a little family farm, in rural upstate New York (Yes, New York does have more then skyscrapers and designer handbags!)
So thank you for finding time to read my first blog, now for me to just find the time to write the second one!
Carrie grew up on a small dairy farm in downstate New York. After attending Morrisville State College and Cornell University, she continued her passion for agriculture in careers as a herd manager on a large dairy and working for Cornell Cooperative Extension. A handful of years living in North Carolina and working for NC State exposed Carrie to southern agriculture and beach life! A leap of faith has brought the family back to rural upstate New York, where Carrie now "practices what she preached" in small, sustainable agriculture production, along with now raising two small boys in a farm family tradition.
