A Day on the Farm: Rest

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything on the blog. I can’t believe how the year has flown by. I’d love to say it was a walk in the park but it wasn’t. Running a business is incredibly hard. Having a one person, labor intensive business is extremely demanding. I’ve had to come face to face with some truths that I don’t like. However, I must admit to the those truths in order for my business to grow.

Things are going to change. I won’t be offering all of the services I used to offer but I am excited for what is to come. I know that my customers have certain expectations and they’ve come to enjoy my little farm. It always amazes me how my farm takes on a life of its own. It really does become more that what I offer. It becomes a sanctuary for many people. A safe haven, a place where people can rest and just be. A place that doesn’t judge. A place a little crooked and in need of repair. A place people can relate to. My farm isn’t for everyone, but for those that need it, my farm is there. As I sit writing this I can feel my farm’s pull on me, the desire to go back there and be near the animals; it is a feeling that keeps me centered.

The summer months were tough for me. I worked seven days a week teaching, planning and caring for the animals. This coming summer things will change. I will not be offering the summer programs that I offered last year. I will have some options but not as many as I had for 2021.

Stay tuned for the changes. Pricing for lessons increased and are reflected on the riding lesson page. If you see a drastically different website, don’t be startled. It just means I wanted to try something different. Until next time!
