Enjoying the Farm While We Build Fence

I have been fairly quiet on here mostly because life has been so hectic at home. Earlier in the year, a friend of ours encouraged us to apply for an EQIP contract to help us implement some of the conservation practices that we really wanted to put into practice on our farm. Some of those conservation practices include reestablishing perennial pastures, providing wildlife habitat through shrub plantings, and implementing a Management Intensive Grazing (MIG) plan (which includes fence and water infrastructure.)

We have been working steadily on installing the hi-tensile fence necessary for the MIG. Most evenings when Scott gets home we work on fence. Although the kids have all been helping with it, they’ve also had time to enjoy just being out on the farm. taking-a-break-from-fencing

Last week when we were fencing, the kids enjoyed hanging out near a small pond. I snapped a few pictures of them while I worked.

They were waiting on me to get to the next spot that a post hole had to be dug.

As you can see from the pictures, the weather has been unseasonably warm and so beautiful!

We almost have the fence completed and I can assure you that we will be celebrating that completion.
