       In the past month we have built a new and larger pen for the geese, the field has been planted with a cover crop to start the spring, and we have generally been getting ready for planting.

After moving the birds, the chickens went on strike! They are finally comfortable in their new home and are laying again. We are taking our first batch of eggs of the new year to Hope Rescue Mission today. What a great feeling to be providingagain.

     December and January have been months of Maintenance, organization and welcomed rest. February is almost here and it is time to kick it into gear. Stay tuned!

     Continued work on the new chicken coop and new goose enclosure today. All birds have successfully been moved to the four acre property next to us and the township has been notified of the move. We are now in compliance with township regulations. So far, because of the use of donated recycled materials the cost for the whole project has been approximately only $25.00.

 We received our tax ID # today in the mail. Time to set up a separate bank account for this new Nonprofit Corperation. The process is moving along.

     I began work on the new chicken pen and coop today. It’s amazing what you can do with used pallets. A special thanks to all those companies who give these pallets away for free when they are done with them. Also a special thanks to Ben Haines Contracting for thinking of us when they have extra wood for disposal. Thanks to donations of wood and materials, so far the cost is $0.

     After reaching out to the Farmer and the owner of the 4 acres next to us, we have gained agreements with both  that will allow us both access and use to expand our farming ministry. We will begin by renting the 4 acres for a cost of only $50 per month. Since we will not be using the full 4 acres for the 2019 spring planting (so that we can expand at a manageable pace), the farmer has agreed to plant a cover crop on the full acreage when he harvests the current crop this November 2018 allowing us to expand on the closest 1/2 acre. He will farm the remainder for next year allowing us to expand slowly year after year following. This will avoid us having to maintain the full acreage that we are not ready to use.
