Urbanna Farm is a go on November 1st. That gives us a few weeks to get the house cleared out, so we have a place to live and to start prepping the fields. We've been busy. The Brant Family Farm has been full swing too, which has been keeping both of us occupied. While I've been taking care of Elijah and working at the new farm (about 25 min. from the Brants) packing boxes and cleaning out rooms in the 3 bed 2 bath 4.5 porch mobile home, Andy's been pulling weeds, pruning asparagus beds, and cleaning up around the fruit trees at the Brants, all while planning a CSA, doing his agriculture entrepreneur class homework, making a harvest schedule, pricing seeds/supplies and planning a fundraiser/barnraising to get us going. We even entered a contest from Nature's Harmony Farm in Elberton, GA. Nature's Harmony is giving away an eggmobile and 200 laying hens to an up and coming farmer. It took us days to finally agree on a video and then it took 5 hours to upload the ten minute clip of us pleading for the hens. We won't know until Sept 30th what kind of impression our home video made and if we won the contest, but we're hoping and praying for the best.
Here's our Eggmobile Plea:
