This Week at Peaceful Heart Farm:

Hello everybody,

Spring is coming on faster and faster. This time of year it seems like time speeds up and it’s hard to get everything done between dawn and dusk. I have potatoes, Chinese cabbages and onions to get in the garden. Oh, I almost forgot about the strawberries. Those need to get in the ground also. It’s going to be a fun and productive week around here.

I’m so excited to share the Farm News from this week.

Cheese in the News

Virginia’s losing one dairy farm a week. Can cheese save the industry?

I sure hope so. This article is a bit of a downer. Lot’s of farmers have given up hope of ever making their dairy operations profitable. It does take a lot of money and know-how to operate a creamery. Personally, I have a great deal of hope. There is a great movement toward locally produced food. I want to be part of it and hope you do to.
