I just talked to my local NRCS office, and they have extended the deadline to get into this program for funds, but I was wondering… Is it like selling your soul when they want a copy of your property deed, Social Security number and property tax receipt for you to be put into their FSA system to be registered with a “tracking number” (their words, not mine)? How much is our privacy worth? Are we willing to sell it for a little funding? I know we need help, but I’m not sure if I want this kind of help. Thoughts?
Yesterday we began drilling our new well to 450ft. Today the casing is going in and soon we will have a fresh new supply of water on the farm (just in time for the summer). I can't imagine a better investment from our life savings. We expect bountiful returns (Lord willing).
Begin the evening with refreshments and a tour of the farm. Witness the stories of a developing small family farm as presented by Farmers Brad and Jenny Stufflebeam followed by a five course farm-style meal served in a scenic field amongst the growing summer produce. Diners are joined at the table by the farmers, and other local artisans associated with the meal, graciously prepared by the talented Chef Jesse Griffiths and Tamara Mayfield of Dai Due.
