Over the weekend I visited a small local farm (http://gramenfarm.com) with myLove. I thought a farm would look a little prettier and have more animals. There were no cool tractors or big red barns. There was no farm house with a wrap around porch. The neighbors were not miles away, they were really close. I was just kind of disappointed as I exited my vehicle.
As a child I spent one of my favorite summers at my uncle’s farm in Missouri. He had over 500 acres. So I guess I had different picture in my head of what a farm should look like.
So I hesitantly entered the one real building and there was Grant, the owner. He had a warm, genuine smile and he welcomed us to his humble farm. He said that its only 32 acres. But there are a lot of happy animals and happy customers here.
We toured the building. Learned a lot about small farms, raw milk and the daily activities. Grant was very passionate and informative. It is amazing how much can be done with so little space.
It was a lot of fun. It makes me want to get some land and do something similar.
