If you had told me four years ago that I would be involved in a farm operation with Animals and produce, I would have wondered what planet you were from. Now from today’s perspective, what a great experience.
Stacy and I purchased this property in 2010 with simple plans for the property. Now, one opportunity after another, meeting Ezra & Michelle, and seeing our growing desire for food and nutrition knowledge is making this loads of fun!
So, as I continue to find how I can be of assistance to the Winding Stair team, I’ll search jobs which others haven’t time to address. Perhaps at some point I can realize how my current professional skill sets can benefit the team.
Recently, I went on a search for my Grandfather’s 1949 Super A Farmall. My logic being, with the farm starting up, I could really use a work horse like this one. Oh, the hours I spent in grandpa’s lap steering that beast like the bat mobile. My plan started to come together when I recruited my uncle to help me locate the Farmall. He located it and Stacy and I headed out for the viewing. We ended up in south Alabama in a very rural area. As we drove down this dirt road … THERE IT WAS! Stacy, seeing the beaten down rusting machine sitting in a swamp, prepared to console me, but I shouted, “It’s even cooler than I remember!”
Anyway the tractor has been restored and purrs like a kitten. You can see this piece of master art upon a visit to the Winding Stair Farm. Come see us!
