Blog July 20, 2009

Well, as you are finding out, Rothe Homestead Farm has a myriad of activities going on at all times. One never knows what the next operation to take place is until that day. Making plans with friends is hard because of the farm needs (taking in hay, hoeing tobacco or topping, and picking of vegetables). None of these can wait until you are ready. The farm has its own timeframe. Each member knows what their basic job is but that can change; say when a wheel falls off the hay wagon, or two days in a row with constant rain, or someone is sick and others have to fill in. They are long days too. From early morning to eight or nine o’clock is not unusual. Yet the next morning, you look out over the fields and know this is where you were meant to be!
