I just wanted to let all of our followers know that there will be some changes to the website over the next couple weeks. These are all good things, and are just to show that we are moving to that next step of maturity. We now have cheese wheels aging in our “cheese cave” and need to be sure that we are ready to support the sales side of the business as soon as the cheese is ready to eat. As we move forward, please keep the feedback coming, we appreciate hearing how our decisions look from your side, and promise to listen. Keep tuned in, and share in our trek.
Okay, I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated. I have an excuse( reason ). We did it! We moved to Colorado. It is the first step in getting the farm up and running.
Ron and Mike seem to be adjusting to the altitude, I, however, am having asthma attacks, one after the other. I have to use my inhaler every four hours on the dot or suffer the coughing fit.
So, now that we are here, the list of things to do is endless. We need to start looking at land again, before the snow flies.
I need to find the two farms here in CO that already have the Dexters that I’m going to need.
I’m hoping to visit the farms and maybe work for a couple of days with them. (after I catch my breath)
The next steps involve grants and loans and USDA stuff. So the winter will be busy with all that.
On CO, so far I really like the people, everyone is really friendly. A few of our neighbors came and introduced themselves. We have a really great view of Pikes Peak from our back deck. I’m told that we have deer, bears, hawks, coyotes, and MOUNTAIN LIONS! We have a small park behind our house that a lion suns himself in, on of the slides. Great!
I will update again soon. Have to get some unpacking done.
