April Showers Bring May Flowers

At the rate the rain is coming down this morning, all our flowers will be washed downstream! I'm so glad we didn't spread our pasture seed earlier this week as planned. Equally as fortunate, the rain held off until last night so we had a gorgeous day for our PA WAgN Grazing & Fencing Workshop held here at the farm yesterday. Two dozen people came from all over the state to learn more about rotational grazing and fencing. We had representatives from the Cumberland County Conservation District and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture who spoke about various programs. The best part of the day was Ralph's presentation of tools, fencing techniques, equipment and most importantly--what NOT to do and use on a fencing project.
