Hello world!

June 25, 2011 on 9:20 am | In Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Life is a strange journey with unforeseen twists.  I have been a United Methodist minister for 40 years, serving churches and in administrative positions for the church in four states.  It has been a grand journey with much joy and always a few challenges.

I never dreamed that now in retirement I would become a farmer.  My oldest brother often dreamed of buying a farm and living off the land.  He never achieved his dream a midst raising children and making a living and a life in town.  Here I am, never thinking of farming, although I have gardened most of my life and often dreamed of homesteading, now engaged in the daily minutia of feeding chickens, pulling weeds and watching the miracle of little seeds turning into lush harvest.

If that were not enough we get to meet the most interesting people who come to our stand, most deeply appreciative of our green efforts.  As I feel the warm sun and experience the frequent rains of this rural place in Vermont, i must say I am indeed blessed, surrounded by a wonderful wife and loving family on this piece of paradise we call Splendid Oak Farm.  God is good.  Every day.
