Yesterday, 10/13/2013, we hosted an Open Farm Sunday event here on our farm. It was a promotion sponsored by Cabot Cheese and the idea was it would be a chance for the general public to visit a farm where the milk that is produced goes into making Cabot cheese. Our farm which is an Agri-Mark producer is on of the many that make up the farms that supply milk for making Cabot cheese. One of the lines in the advertisements for this event was; "Call us old fashioned but our Farm Families want to thank you in person." We were indeed blessed to be able to meet many people yesterday as they came to visit our farm and give them a glimpse of what goes on at our farm daily in the effort to produce quality milk.
When we considered hosting this event we realized it was on a Sunday and we hesitated a little because Sunday is a day that we hold pretty sacred and we knew we would have to miss going to church which is our usual custom on a Sunday morning. We decided that it wouldn't be too bad if we missed one Sunday service at church. So we went ahead and scheduled the event. We had a very beautiful day and enjoyed our time visiting with those that came to see our farm but, we really missed our time of worship and fellowship at church. While we know that God hasn't made a big black mark on our record of church attendance, we feel we missed out on a blessing that would have been much greater than the blessing we did receive by staying at home and hosting the Open Farm Sunday event for Cabot cheese. So, call us old fashioned but, in hind sight, we think our time would have been better utilized by being in church than hosting an event on our farm.
Hello, if you are a follower of this blog you will remember that Angela was doing the blogs. Well, things have gotten busy for her and so Stan, her dad, is filling in for now. I am not as techno savy as her so I am not sure how this will work but I am going to try and post on a hopefully regular basis.
