Joel (26), our oldest son, works full time on the farm. He is also beekeeper and the Heavenly Honey brand honey that we sell comes from his bees. Joel’s main responsibilities are running our feed mill, mixing the feed and feeding the chickens. He is our egg delivery person and is the one who delivers our eggs and BARC dog food to the stores each week.
When it comes to any problems that are computer related, Joel is the person that we turn to. He has a knack for understanding computers and how to fix them. He is also the webmaster and web designer for our websites. Joel also has an interest in health and helping others to be healthy.
Joel is a talented musician. His favorite instrument is a 12 string guitar which he often plays by ear. He also plays 6 string guitar, harmonica, and electric autoharp. He has written a number of songs and sings lead and tenor.
Nathan, our second oldest son, is also working full time on the farm. His responsibilities include raising the pullets (young laying hens before they lay their first egg) and managing the pastures.
He owns the sheep and is a real shepherd at heart. Its amazing how he can tell the sheep apart and often knows who its mother is, or who the lambs are. The sheep have been thriving under his care.
Nathan is musically talented and plays the fiddle and sings lead, tenor, baritone and bass. Every day we hear his cheerful whistling around the farm.
