Reality Sets In...
If you know anything about Deak's Farms, you know we both attend college full time. I am graduating with my Associate's Degree in two weeks!!! Now enough with the excitement, the reality is that I can not further my education. It has always been HUGE goal of mine to have a Bachelor's Degree. I found out this harsh reality two days ago. I am out of student loans, so unless I somehow pull off six to eight thousand dollars in scholarships, this is the end of the road for me, kids. Am I sad and disappointed, you bet your sweet little bum I am. However, I have taken this news and I am making lemonade. Sweet southern lemonade. The kind that my grandma makes. So sweet it will make your teeth hurt. I am going to take this opportunity and put all of myself into our dream and our business. I will have the time now.
We are going to grow the biggest and best plants you have ever seen. We have dreams of one day opening up a C.S.A.,or maybe just a local wholesaler. I will be glad to maybe slow down a bit. Not so much work wise, but I will be home more and that will be nice. Enough about that. Let's talk goats. We are getting our goats hopefully by the end of May. I am STOKED! Truth be told, I have never milked a goat in my life, but I am excited to learn. I want to make beautiful goat cheese and heavenly goat soap.
