February Scenes at Stout Oak Farm

By: Julia Holup, Assistant Farm Manager

Success in farming takes careful planning. In the winter, while the crops are at rest, the farmers are at work: 

Noses in books. Eyes on excel sheets. Hands on keyboards, tap-tapping away at annual reports and year-end analyses.
There are binders full of colorful tabs, notes in black pen on dirt smudged paper, and cups of coffee warming on the woodstove. There are hours of planning, meetings to discuss the big vision (What are our goals?) and the nitty-gritty details (Should we plant 200 bed feet of paste tomatoes or 150?), new crew members to hire, and much more. 
But as March nears, all the details come together. Seeds are sown. Spring awakens, and a new season begins.
