March by the Numbers
We make a real effort to be conscientious of how we run our farm. We’re using this data so you can see some of the realities of a functioning farm and so we can challenge ourselves to reflect month by month on how we could operate even better.
We send these numbers out each month in our Newsletter but had forgotten to put them up on our blog. Here they are:
