A New Chapter after 17 years!

by Jane Levene on 03/28/12

Well, it has been a long time that the cart has been leading the horse around here!  Seventeen years ago, we began Jefferson Farms and its' been fast and furious since then.  Loving the new site with Intuit.Websites.  So from now on, my lst task each day is to sum up the experiences we've had.    A few days ago, a forest fire started near a friend's farm.  We raced up there as soon as she called but their road was already closed due to the extreme closeness of the fire.  We waited a few hours, but had to head home.  Fortunately later that night, our friend Karen was able to get all of her alpacas and the 3 guard dogs out. We now have the males, and will be shifting the entire herd of 31 alpacas down to the Salida farm starting tomorrow.  Many thanks to Del and Diana for making that part of life so easy.  In the Mountain West we always have to be aware of the risk from fires, storms, floods, drought and whatever else nature wants to throw at us.  It takes a special person to be able to deal with all of the challenges and still end each day looking around and marveling at the beauty of it all. Me? I'm more farmer than rancher, love the flat irrigated lands and easy access.  Our community of breeders is truly fantastic here, whatever happens we know that our fello breeders have our backs.  So thanks to all of the hard-working volunteers, and special wishes and prayers to all of those whose homes are at risk.  Take care, Jane
