Thanksgiving from the Farmer’s Perspective

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

As harvest is coming to an end, we can’t help but reflect on the past year of blessings we have been given during this Thanksgiving season. This holiday, Thanksgiving, is generally overlooked and many people center their brains into the Christmas season. For us, Thanksgiving is one of the most powerful holidays we can celebrate. It really is one of the only holidays that we aren’t expecting presents, candy, or Easter eggs. Thanksgiving was originally created to celebrate the end of harvest, so this post is centered around all the blessings our farming family has experienced this past year as we close out harvest!


Number 1! We have all made it through this year healthy. We are so thankful that we have had the ability and strength to work as hard as we do. What a gift it is for our family’s health!




Number 2! We started a business together! If you know all 4 of us, you know how loud we can be when we are all together. We all bring such different skills and assets and I’m grateful for all the perspective each of us brings to the table.





Number 3! We have gotten to supply your families with great quality beef and pork. We really enjoy getting to know the customers buying our product and loving it just as much as we do. Our family appreciates all the support you have given us this past year.




Number 4! We are so thankful for all the people who have helped accomplish all the work on the farm this year. We could not have done all we have without all the help from seasonal farm hands and neighbors. We truly are blessed with such a strong rural community in our area.




Number 5! For the animals and the land we get to tend too. We are humbled everyday to get to tend to the livestock and land that provides such nourishing food for our family and so many others. Caring for many other living beings is one of the best blessings (even in the hardest of days). We are full of gratitude to all the animals and the land surrounding us.




Number 6! Regardless of how hard they were, we are thankful for all the hardships this year has brought too! The long hours, endless pieces of broken equipment, the constant tiredness, lost opportunities, and family disagreements have challenged me this year. However for each one of the downsides we are choosing to learn from them and hopefully bring more knowledge into the coming year. Farming is hard, but we sure do love it!





We hope that you all have a truly wonderful thanksgiving holiday! We are grateful for all of your support in our business this far! Happy thanksgiving!


Love,

Olivia, Tabby, Gina, & Kendra
