I’m Grateful for My Farm Life

Take a moment to think where your food comes from – the very root of where it began!

In honor of National Agriculture Day I would like to take a moment to thank something we all get the privilege to be a part of – farming.

You might be thinking, “Well, I live in an apartment building in the middle of a city… I’m not a part of agriculture!”

I Was Born to Have a Dairy Cow

When I think back to my first memories, one thing comes to mind – cows. While most young girls were playing with dolls or pretending to be a princess, I spent hours pretending to be a dairy farmer with my little sister.  At age 3, I began a quest to master the art of drawing… cows of course, and continually filled my parents’ days with nonstop conversation about everything cow!  

A Dairy Farm, Craft Breweries and Giant Pumpkins

A Pumpkin Tradition

October might just be the coziest month of the year.  It’s finally boot and scarf season, leaves are falling, crockpot recipes and Halloween costumes fill your Pinterest feed, and pumpkin has made its way into EVERYTHING.  Yes, October is a very good month.  Thank goodness October has five weekends because we have some serious fall business to attend to.

Coffee and Dairy Should Marry

The Evergreen State. It’s known for a few things... like always being green, and the Space Needle, and apples. And coffee - that delicious liquid that most Americans and all Washingtonians rely on for survival. As home to one of the biggest coffee companies in the world (a little place called Starbucks), you could say we know a thing or two about coffee around here. There are coffee shops, stands, and specialty roasters on every street corner, and for good reason. We love the stuff. And we love it even more with dairy.
