So for our final stop on our Farm Tour Series we visitedFree State Llamas. Now we may have visited primarily due to the fact that my little Bug loves llamas and alpacas, but it doesn’t hurt that Stella is an avid knitter as well. Plus, just look at these critters, they look pretty darn cool. As a note, Free State Llamas only has llamas, no alpacas.
Our grand farm tour series continues! This time it takes us to Bean Hollow Grassfed at Over Jordan Farm. As you may guess from the name, this farm is more focused on grass fed livestock. But don’t think for a moment that they are just about fattening up animals to get them to market. They are highly focused on making sure that they take care of the land as well.
I don’t know if these just happen where I live or if they are wide spread across the country. But around here various counties set up farm tour weekends. They convince working farms, homesteads, orchards, stores specializing in local wares to set up open houses on their given weekend and invite the public to come out and see what they do. The upside is that it can get your name out there if you have a product that you are trying to sell or bring to customers.
So another in our series of quotes. If you have missed some previous quotes you can go back to the Roosevelt quote and Churchill quote. Today our quote comes from Gen George S. Patton. For those who don’t know he was a World War II general from the United States. He was a tank commander and is a rather well known general. There is even a movie with his name as the title (it’s about him too). We won’t go into some of the odd beliefs that he held, we’ll just stick with his quote.
