I spent all morning yesterday writing a blog entry and then lost it. WIX let me know they're having a blog engine bug. Yay. So that's frustrating.

LOTS of milk. As our drop point space allows, we are delivering 2 jars per herd share this week unless you let us know that...

​Family milk cows are all of the sudden in big demand. We have an abundance of cows in milk this spring and have selected certain cows to sell to increase our cash flow. We sold Suzy and her milk is not being delivered. We just sold Thelma and Dani as well, so you may...
