Posted 7/9/2018 8:49am by Jeremy House.

Howdy from the farm,

Unfortunately we have to change the July delivery. Barb who is Cherie's helper/driver has hurt her back quite severely and will not be able to go on the 14th. If you would like to send her a get well note, her address is Barb Metzger 20665-1300 E. St. Princeton, IL 61356. Jeremy already had something and can not change those plans. We will reschedule for August 4. This will be the delivery for July and August both.

We know this is an inconvenience. If it helps we will offer pick up at the farm. This will come with a 10% discount. The farms address is 6139 1700N Sheffield Illinois 61361. You will need to set up a time with Cherie when she will be at the farm to help with your order. Her number 815-303-6226.

Farm update, the crops look good for the most part. They may be a little behind but weed control is acceptable to great. When the weather allows we have been spending long days in the tractor, getting fields ready to plant, planting and weeding. There have been periods where the soil is too wet. With the warm weather and good soil moisture the crops are growing fast.

Beside the corn and soybeans for feed we have small fields/big gardens where we planted green beans, pinto beans, pop corn, and sweet corn. We also have a big garden. I will know in a couple of weeks if we will have an opportunity for you to come if you choose and do a u-pick for the green beans. Canned green beans make a good vegetable dish in the winter and spring months when nothing is growing in the snow and mud. We will keep you updated and try to give as much advanced notice as possible.

The animals are enjoying the break in the heat and humidity. You may have seen we have 4 steer calves loose. They are technically on my parents farm now but they are not in the pasture they belong in yet. Livestock always manages to make life on the farm interesting. A boring day on a livestock farm is a good day. That means everything stayed in its pen and there were no emergencies for the animals or people.
