Archive for January, 2013

This year has been full of ups and downs.  It is hard to put all the emotions we on Schutz Farms have gone through into words.  The beginning of the year started out with trips to Hawaii for Farm Bureau and South Africa for a family wedding.  Five days upon returning home my mother in law passed away completely unexpectedly.  From February 29 through the moment you read this, we are still going through “firsts”.  First Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Life goes on and we all have done a great job of pushing forward.  Our farm has expanded to welcome a new little lady, born to Brock and Jackie, and we are excited to have another baby on the way for Ben and Genny.

On the farm we have expanded our cattle operation, started a group of weaned pigs, bagged silage for the first time, hosted kids days and Japanese tour groups.  We have also dealt with a drought and having to constantly haul water to the livestock – even now.  What an interesting year.  The following pictures give a glimpse of our lives during that time.  And boy is it hard to whittle down the pics!

We look forward 2013 and everything it brings us!
