2016 was a tough year to launch the Co-op. It started with Lynn’s unfortunate passing in April then onto 28 days of rain in May. Jessi came along in June, learned the ropes pretty well and then left in October. It seems she got a sudden urge to be a teacher. I explored a couple prospects in December and January but none panned out. I am just spread too thin to do it all myself. In the month of June I’ve got 25,000 trees to shear…by myself, 75 acres of hay to cut and bale and 5 acres of pumpkins to plant. To top it all off, I am typing this with one finger because I have two fingers broken in my left hand. I’ll still be growing a limited number of veggies and primarily wholesaling them. Planning on tomatoes, pie pumpkins, acorn squash and butternut squash. I’m open to the possibility of making a go of the Co-op in the future but I’ve got to have a stable person in place that I can count on.
