2017 brought a lot to be thankful for! Like a good crop year and a drought free summer. We are thankful for our healthy and productive herd of 557. We are thankful for the new anaerobic digester engine, bringing more green energy to the grid and soon more recycled heat to our homes this winter. We are thankful for milking Robot 5 coming on line. We are thankful for the amazing students and visitors who come on farm tours ready to learn.
And we are also thankful that our ancestors rooted us here in Hadley, MA back in 1806. And that we continue to run this farm as a small and involved family business with the sixth and the seventh generation giving feedback and growing our business.
Finally, we are thankful for you! For our customers who support our business, brighten our days, and continue to challenge and support us as we grow. It is because of you that we are able to continue a sustainable business. And we hit a pie record this Thanksgiving too!
