The blog has arrived!Category: Jason
Author: 5 Chicks and a Farmer
I'm so thrilled and excited to announce that Farmer Jason has posted his very first post on his very own blog!
I can't wait for you to see and learn about Yonder Way Farm through his eyes and heart. He truly is gifted with passion and knowledge about turning our farm into something unlike anything in this area.
I love this man more than this blog post could do justice. I'm just plain ole' excited that you get to learn more about this incredible man that I adore and take a peak at what goes on inside his bald head.
I have been encouraging him for quite a while now about starting a blog that contained the daily happenings around the farm. He is a big journal-er (word?) and has a journal filled with farm facts.
I love that he walks out to the rain gauge every time it rains to see how much rain we received....and writes it in his journal.
I love that he knows how long the cows have been on their particular pad grazing for however many days in ALL 31 pads........and writes it in his journal.
I love that he knows the temperature for that day, the week before that, and the week after that........and writes it in his journal.
I love that he is the chicken whisperer, cow whisperer, goat whisperer, pig whisperer, and Rowdy whisperer all rolled up into one person. (just kidding.......not really:)
I love that he knows exactly how many eggs our chickens have laid since we've had them. I just asked him this question and this was his answer. Really. I'm not kidding.
"Honey, how many eggs have our chickens laid since we've had them?" (I KNEW that he knew the answer. How is that for confidence?)
"Jimminy crickets. Well let's see. We've probably averaged 6 eggs per day. Times 30 days a month which is 180 eggs times 6 months which is 1,080 eggs."
I'm not even kidding the man is incredible with numbers. He said his 'hobby' during one of our premarital counseling sessions that his 'hobby' was playing with numbers. Ha! Who knew he'd use this 'hobby' in farming.
I love that he knows every minute detail about this farm and what makes it tick.
His prayer is his vision and his vision is his prayer.
Go see what he is up to and subscribe to it (I use bloglines.com to subsribe)! I highly recommend it.
