Thankful
-Thursday, November 22, 2018

How do we find the right people to help us run our business? Who will work really hard and share our enthusiasm? What person will commit to a job that is part time with wages that are at the top end of what we can afford, yet less than what they can make elsewhere? Why in the world would anyone want to jump into a job that is physically hard and even stressful at times? Where do we find someone to sign up for all of that? This is the kind of thing that keeps me awake at night.

Gaining Momentum
-Wednesday, March 21, 2018

I love when an idea starts gaining momentum. It's rarely easy. There are usually challenges and roadblocks along the way. The journey is the exciting part, though. It's that navigation and problem solving, coupled with tons of perseverance, that makes it all the more worthwhile.

Fighting fear.
-Monday, October 23, 2017

Within one mile of my house, there are four farmers doing their part to raise healthy, affordable pork for American consumers. I know these farmers personally, and I know they care for their animals just like they care for their kids. Not only do their livelihoods depend upon keeping their animals comfortable and healthy, but their moral compasses tell them it is the right thing to do.

What happened to winter?! Part 2
-Thursday, May 11, 2017

The big market barn doors closed for the season, but things didn’t exactly come to a halt for us as events continued to hum along in The Loft. My main responsibility there is to supervise the clean-ups and new set-ups. I love working with the team of people we’ve assembled and we had a pretty good winter routine. The most interesting thing that happened was in January when I got to be a front row guest as our middle son got married. The new perspective definitely gave me some insight into what a wedding experience is all about. It renewed my resolve to make sure the details for each event are complete.
