Sundays and Boundaries

Yesterday was Sunday and we had someone show up on the farm to look at some heifers we have for sale. Here are my thoughts on Sundays and boundaries!
Sunday is a day of rest, a day of worship, but most of all it’s our family day! We still do the chores, milk cows, pick up eggs, feed animals but we also like to take a Sunday nap, have dinner with family. I have boundaries.
I don’t ask people not to come out to the farm but I do ask them not to come to the farm on Sunday. I also ask people to call ahead if they are coming out to the farm, that’s just to make sure we are there to show them around. When the seasons change so does our availability. Farming after all is a business.
We run our farm like a business. Our business is closed on Sundays. My house is not a place of business. I will not invite you into my house, please don’t be offended, I set that boundary for family reasons. That is a safe haven for my children. I have many customers that come to the farm to pick up eggs and meat from me. I enjoy the fact that they love our farm and our products that the farm produces. I also appreciate that they understand and respect our boundaries.
Our boundaries and No Sundays have worked well for us as a family farm. We do understand that there are exceptions to every rule. My hubby still has to sell those heifers, but Sunday is still the day of rest, a day of worship, and a family day in my life.

Insurance Quest 2

I try to make it as simple as possible. I have done a lot of the leg work. He told us we would have to look into it and that was around two weeks ago. No call or contact yet! Continue reading
