July 2024 CSA Newsletter Summer Snoozing Siestas are key. They might not be long, maybe 20 minutes, other days a full hour to put your feet up and rest. Early mornings are a must on the ranch.

November 2023 CSA Newsletter First snowfall on November 1st! Its been such a lovely fall and it gave us time to winterize many ( note that I did not say all!) things.
