Leland brings the wheat
Today, Leland and his son harvested a load of grain in his nearby field and delivered it to Jako Farm. (In this picture, Daniel is unloading the wheat into an auger, which transfers the grain into our storage tank.) Leland is one of several local producers that grow the grain for our chicken and pig rations. He farms using organic practices, although the official certification hasn’t come through yet. Like Leland, we know and trust our producers and have built relationships with them. We know their families, their homes, and their fields. There’s beauty in knowing where your food comes from at every step of the game.
