Thank you to our employees! We have several employees that help us on the farm everyday and they are the reason we have a successful farm. These guys are the ones that allow us to have a day off here and there and are truly like family. Our daughter loves our employees and it’s a great feeling knowing they love her too. I also cook lunch for the workers 3 to 4 times a week so they come into our home, sit at our table and enjoy a meal like our family would. (I just hope they appreciate that!)
Our employees help us in every area of the farm from milking to feeding to field work. Our farm’s set up can be a very labor intensive facility so we would not be able to farm just the two of us. Each and every one of them is appreciated.
Another challenge we have is finding good, reliable employees and right now we have lots of good help. One of our full-time employees has been here for over 15 years and he is the type of employee that you don’t have to tell him what needs done, he knows before I do and takes care of it. Another one of our part-time employees will be strongly missed once he graduates from trade school and finds a full-time job in his career.
For day 8 I am thanking our employees for their love and care of our farm and cattle and for being great employees!
During the month of November I will be blogging with a new thanks each day! Follow along by seeing all the posts under the menu option “Farm Love” and then “30 Days of Thanks.”
