I never thought I would find myself behind a computer screen writing a blog post. I mean seriously? A blog? What am I a millennial? I'm not one of those hipster farmer types, I despise social media and I certainly do not have a soap box I am dying to stand on.
But here I am writing a blog.
It all started because of listening to Charlotte Smith's The Profitable Mindset Podcast. She say's I need a blog if I want to engage my wonderful customers, gain more customers and ultimately keep my farm going and our animals fed . Charlotte Smith is a farm coach and she seems to know what she's talking about. I'll see if I can figure out how to put a link in for her podcast. I'm new to all this stuff ya know and technically I don't even know if it's legal to link someone to my blog. Oh well. I'll give it a go.
So.....I'm not sure if I am at all good at writing but I am good at homestead type stuff and I'm keeping all our animals alive and happy. Who knows maybe I do have some knowledge to share with my three readers. I took a semester in creative writing a couple decades ago, I guess I should have paid more attention.
Incase you didn't know I'm Angie, my husband is Jon and we have a very sweet, somewhat intense hound dog named River. Yes, the farm is named after him in a kind-a sorta way. When we started our farm we were living on a river so between that and our super awesome dog we named the farm Sweet River Farm. Probably most people who visit the farm don't think River is very sweet, he's a barker and mostly acts like he wants to eat you. But he is the sweetest most cuddly, affectionate dog EVER. He does eat chickens though so he can't hang out on the farm. Your just going to have to trust me, he's sweet. Sweet River Farm, it might be an oxymoron considering we have a dog that people don't think of as sweet and he technically can't even be on the actual farm or we would have no chickens. Maybe I should have thought that one through a little better.
Okay back to farming....
