Merry Christmas

Another year is swiftly coming to a close. As we look back and reflect on the past year we can easily become discouraged. It was a hard summer, but we have many things to be thankful for. We are blessed with amazing customers who become like family to us. From all of us at C/J Natural Meats we wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year!

A Farmer's Work

Make the hay while the sun is shining, haul the manure while the ground is frozen, and milk the cows twice a day. A farmer’s work is never done.

Move the chickens in the morning’s light and gather the eggs by the afternoon sun. Slop the pigs twice a day, a farmer’s work is never done.

The cows must be milked. The pigs must be slopped. No matter if it’s rainy or sunny, the chickens must be fed.

Move the beef to the next paddock, wean the calves when the time is right. Get the brooder ready for new chicks, a farmer’s work is never done.

Read literature to continue learning, keep up to date with the rules and regs. Order supplies before they run out, a farmer’s work is never done.

The cows must be milked. The pigs must be slopped. No matter if it’s Saturday or Sunday, the chickens must be fed.

Make multiple trips to and from the butcher shop, stock the freezers in the store. Greet the customers with a smile. A farmer’s work is never done.

Answer the phone round the clock. Hope it’s not the sheriff in the middle of the night. “Your cows are out,” leaves a sinking feeling. A farmer’s work is never done.

The cows must be milked. The pigs must be slopped. No matter if it’s Christmas or New Years, the chickens must be fed.

Another year has swiftly passed, taking time to reflect on the blessings. Safely brought to another season, a farmer’s thanks is never done.

A healthy family, safe travels on the highways, and the blessing of caring and smiling customers; a farmer’s thanks has just begun.
