    Hi Annie and Nick,
    Thanks again for letting my dad and me visit your lovely farm. My dad said he couldn’t remember the last time he was on a farm and he very much enjoyed our visit. Thanks Annie for coming to dad’s open house also. I’m sorry I didn’t get to talk to you. I saw that you connected with Kathy though so that was great!
    Have a wonderful rest of your summer!

    I’ve been buying raw milk from you guys for a year and just now somehow found your website – you guys are awesome! Keep up the great work.

    Also – have you guys considered running a Catholic Worker Farm in the summertime? The nearest one is about an hour away last I checked (Lake City I believe). I’d definitely participate in that!
