Week 27 – Old School Farming Still Works!

Is it lunchtime on Tuesday already? And no blog from me?  Yes, our schedules here at the farm are overflowing like a broken cattle water tank.  Hay is being mowed and raked, oats are being swathed, which essentially just means cut and placed into a windrow.  We are even in the…

Week 25 – This dog has something to say about our grass-fed beef!

I promise this is not photoshopped!  A good customer of ours pulled up for his monthly Wallace Farms meat order on Saturday…and my mind screamed “blog photo of the week!”  It was an awesome day for both weather and our monthly Chicago delivery.  Thank you to all those who made time to…

Week 24 – New Paint vs Old Paint…Steaks vs Bacon Burgers

Two heat waves and it’s not even close to July yet.  It’s these stretches that once again test your metal.  The extreme heat does make that inevitable thunder storm and cool down that much sweeter.  I will be anxiously waiting for that cold front tonight…maybe I’ll get a lightning storm…

Week 23 – Baseball gloves are great for picking strawberries!

There must be something about being 5 years old and wanting to farm. My middle child, Maddock, made the cut this week and is proudly showing his haul of strawberries from my weedy garden. If he hears the skid loader or a tractor start up, he asks if I’m running…

Week 21 – Surprise Guest Blogger

Is that Steve Wallace riding off into the sunset? Yup. This week I have been asked to write the weekly blog, while Nick is in Colorado for a few days. I will offer up some thoughts for you to think about. We do not do enough thinking about BIG thoughts.

Week 20 – Why is my dad drag racing in our fields?

What a whirlwind of week it was…last week saw over 700 orders come through our new website. That was both a marvelous thing to see and also pushed our system to full capacity, and then some. Poor Bruce was in the freezer for long and cold days. He comes with…

Week 19

There are only 3 good reasons to be late publishing a weekly blog. The first you’ve already realized a few weeks back, her name is Reign, and she’s almost 2 years old. The second and third are, launching a new website and having cattle break through the fence…twice in 2…

Week 18

As most people begrudge a three day stretch of cloudy, rain threatening skies, I was in pure heaven.  We had just seeded down all those acres and this rain was just what the farm doctor ordered.  Over the course of 3 days we measured around an inch and a half…
