Grain costs drive up the price of chicken feed
We buy organic grains to mix our chicken feed, and the price of those grains has recently skyrocketed due, in part, to the drought. Therefore, the price of our chicken feed is now $0.40/lb. We’re having exceptional trouble sourcing organic milo. If you are aware of a source, please let us know.
A bit of raw honesty
Many of you have asked how we’re faring this summer. To be honest, it hasn’t been easy. We have nearly maxed out our water allotment for irrigation, we have spent down the farm savings to buy supplemental organic hay for the winter, and sales have significantly decreased. These things do weigh heavily on us.
We continue to pray for rain, cooler weather, and steady sales in the farm store. Will you join us? Its the tough times that remind us to trust God, no matter what situation we find ourselves in.
