Pitch forks and college kids

The kids from UW showed up the last weekend of February to learn a bit about farming and to get dirty...
They got a tour of the dairy and the farm in general.

Then we put them to work, to find out what its really like to be farmers. There was an overwintered pile of cow rear-end fixin's that needed to be moved into a window to compost.

Yes, that is steam coming from the already cooking pile that has been growing for months

And then the bottom of the pile, Oh how sweet it was!

And a few of them took the fun job of sifting finished compost so that we can use it in the soil flats to get a head start on the season in the greenhouse.

Thanks to everyone for helping out and learning what our farm is all about!
