    Fall transitions on the farm

    We’ve begun the slow transition to fall at Jako Farm– the last batch of fryers moved out to pasture (with three able-bodied helpers, shown above), we’ve mowed the pastures to break down dry vegetation to provide mulch for new fall growth, and we’re watching the lambs fatten up for November butchering.  We’re enjoying this seasonal transition as welcome every seasonal transition… because the beauty of seasonal farming is that each season brings new joys and challenges that we haven’t experienced since the previous year.

    Pray for rain!

    With all the flooding in other parts of the country, it seems odd to say that we’re praying for rain.  But the truth is, the pastures are noticeably dry and we’ve received only two inches of rain since the first of June.   We rely on late summer and fall grass growth to sustain our cattle all winter long, so this is a crucial time in our pastures.  Please join us in praying for rain!

    Check out this beautiful banquet we hosted along the Arkansas River this week!  We enjoy creating these memorable events for family and special friends.
