Another Step

This process of getting our farm business going is like putting one foot in front of the other. Sometimes I can’t believe it will ever happen. My “feet” feel like lead, like I can barely make the next step. And then we do take one more little baby step. And we’re that much closer to getting there.

Today I spoke with the Iowa Bureau of Weights and Measures about getting our scale inspected and certified. Can I just say I was “wowed” by the service? Within 15 minutes of emailing them an inspector called me and we talked for 1/2 an hour. I learned a lot. He will be up next Wednesday to do the inspection.

One more step down. How many more to go? Not sure. But the next one is to develop some labels so that I can attach them to the application for our food warehouse permit, which I want to mail in at the end of next week. That will take some time at the computer, a meeting with our processor. Baby steps.

  1. Keep at it. One thing I learned from hiking is that the end of the trail is always going to require one more step.I love reading your blog. I’m always amazed at the amount of work you do and the perseverence you apply to succeeding.I’m cheering for your success which I feel is inevitable..

    What are you going to weigh on site? Veggies and the frozen, processed chickens?
