Farm notes...........

Happy holidays everyone ~ I hope you are enjoying the festivities of the season as we are here at Tylerfarm.  The temp outside feels like winter but our ground is bare of snow.  We are hoping Sunday nights storm brings us a little white stuff to add to the feeling of Christmas :)  Below is a photo of our lovely tree.  We enjoyed a great family evening on this Wednesday past decorating it and reminiscing about our ornaments, especially those when the boys were back in kindergarten!  Such fond memories :)

No matter what time of year it is or what's going in any of our lives, new life springs forth here at the farm when the time is right.  On December 7, one of our first time heifers, Hope, gave birth to our sweet new addition, Harriett.  Harriett is a black angus/red angus and will spend her days on the farm, hopefully producing beautiful little replicas of herself.  Hope delivered her while I was at work and all was well when I arrived home.  I was thrilled and relieved to see all was well!

On another happy note, I have been fortunate to land a job at a local health care organization.  I have been there for a few weeks now.  I enjoy the commute, the people I work with are great, the organization treats their employees exceptionally well and the job security is fantastic.  I am enjoying being part of the public work force again.  The security is a great feeling but it also allows me to continue to plan for the farm and the farm shop which will both continue to grow and flourish.

That's my newsy update for now.  I wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons.  I hope to catch up more often now that life is settling into more of a routine.  I hope you are all well and happy!

Thanks for still checking in on us here at Tylerfarm.
