Being a farmer is not for everyone. Owning and operating a small family farm is hard work, lacks vacation and sick days and is not on the high end of the pay scale. Animals don’t care that it is Christmas or if you’re tired — they rely on you to care for them and it is a never ending job. Often days you wake up in the dark and you go to sleep in the dark. Sort of like how being a parent is. 🙂 Nevertheless, it’s probably one of the most rewarding jobs out there and for good reason.
