A little bit about me
Although I'm the primary owner, the rest of the family is involved in the mill. John does all the maintence work and runs his own full-time plumbing business is always helping me fix or build things as well as giving me great advice or finding ways to streamline and make things easier for me. I love that I have someone to bounce ideas off of and that he is so supportive.
The girls are my helpers. Beth(17) is more behind the scenes, photographing, labeling, preparing for shows and such. Emma(15), helps out everywhere. She helps with washing, watching the carder, pin drafting, She even helps with dyeing. If you come to a show, I can guarantee she will be there helping.
There really never is a dull moment at our house. Both the girls are in 4H and are raising calves for working steers (oxen). They also have a small flock of laying hens to keep us in eggs.
In the springtime, we are busy sugaring, making maple syrup. this is one of Johnny's favorite times of the year. It a lot of hours, but it's a great way for us to spend time together as a family.
