Vacation Day

Posted 1/19/2015 11:12am by Alan & Amy McKamey.

Most people don't take vacation days to work.  But, around here thats usually the case.  I took the day off work today to get some much needed farm work done.  The day started off by making a big pot of dog food which included eggs. lamb liver and vegetables from the garden.  I have a loaf of bread baking as we speak.  I made a batch of homemade blueberry lard soap and then proceeded to make a batch of dishwasher pods.  I have been working to get a stock pile of soap products ready for the farmers market this summer.

Alan made a run to town to get some supplies to redo a hog pen in the barn and repair some wheelbarrows.  

We then need to get some cleaning done in the poultry side of the barn and hopefully get some farm paper work done this afternoon.  The work on a farm never ends even in the middle of winter.
