Shopping cartFarming as a profession has always had its own unique challenges. Those of us who do not make a living farming can’t fully understand what it means to have a rainy spring, weeds or insects taking hold of our fields, problems getting our meat processed and to market. We just assume when we go to the grocer bread, cereal, bacon, hamburger, fruits, and veggies will be where they always are.

Due to a multiplicity of current events, farmers are finding themselves in fluctuating economic times. For example, one day there is a glut of milk on the market and demand is down, the next month milk consumption is up and inventory needed. Dealing with this disparity can be grueling.
