It's the "what I'm doing now" sort of thing, that I am pretty sure we visited with it 6 months ago.
Yeah, we did.
I'm doing something different now.
NO! I'm NOT!
I don't know if you can tell, but I am a little sensitive as far as this subject goes.
Sensitive yet very excited.
Did I mention happy?
Anyway, last Monday I started a new job as the Herd Manager at Century Harvest Farms in Greenback, TN.
Like "herd" as in beef, not dairy like you may be used to.
Yeah, lots of beef pictures now peeps.
Contain your excitement.
Now for the exciting part....
Century Harvest Farms is brand new, progressive and the possibilities are endless.
Chris, my boss and the "man with the plan", started the farm to answer the need for grass-fed, organic beef in Tennessee.
He is all about sustainable agriculture, and taking care of soil and animals in a way that promotes health and longevity without chemicals and antibiotics.
See? Told ya, progressive.
When he approached me with the job opportunity and started talking cattle, my heart jumped.
Like, really, the thought of taking care of a herd of cattle made my heart swell.
I accepted the position, and when I told Glenn he genuinely got excited for me.
He will be my go-to vet:).
Right now, counting cows/calves/steers/bulls, I have around 150 head...maybe more.
I also have my work cut-out for me. That's OK:).
This gal is no stranger to work.
I have a TON to learn, as far as the process Chris wants to use to do things, and the Organic way of raising cattle.
The research is endless.
Wanna see some pictures?!
It really doesn't matter, they are coming...
This...THIS is my view!
It's OK to be jelly:).
I kinda hate that word, but I love saying it.
This hill is where we will be building the first cow/calf barn, which is something we hope to begin in the next few weeks.
Zeeeessss are a few of my employees.
Aren't they lovely?
This big guy is Curly, he is going to be introduced to, like 80, girlfriends shortly.
This is what we do.
Red here, is the lifeguard, because they all listen to her.
Eventually, all of the water sources, like the pool here, will be fenced off as well as any natural shade areas...trees, etc.
This will cause the cattle to come to the barn when they are hot, to find water, fans and shade.
They will also be fed there, and deposit manure there...instead of in the pool.
No one likes that kid.
The manure will be composted and used on the land.
Circle of life, people.
I am blessed beyond belief, and don't take one ounce for granted.
The question is, are YOU ready for this adventure?
I know I am:).
