This operation has many moving parts when in full swing. Starting in late July with You Pick Highbush Blueberries and mixed vegetables at the farm stand. Soon after the commercial side of the operation will start to roll with 50 or so local people, we hand and machine harvest 10,000 Highbush Blueberries plants from the first of August to early September. We deliver the bulk of the berry crop to the warehouse loading dock for Hannaford with our own refrigerated truck. The rest is delivered to 50 or so local stores or frozen in our on farm freezer.
Early September the local public comes for You Pick Apples, plus we have a crew of two or three picking for our on farm storage which gives us winter sales.
All the while garden crops are being sold and put into storage for the winter sales.
We deliver our frozen blueberries, apples and vegetables to many schools and institutions state wide and we work with a distributor as well.
I have health issues I can no longer avoid.
As part of sale I will stay on for a year or so and help buyer with things like where the irrigation and electric lines are buried or introducing them to our buyers and contractors. All the little things that will sneak up on you when you least expect it.

When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other green plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in lowering damage to the environment plus the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then contributes to the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is ideal for consumers than livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a more healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
