A chemical free lawn is just for starters. In an effort to avoid chemicals for the entire farm, we maintain the area between the road and our fences. By keeping the area mowed, the county road crew doesn’t have to do any work to do when they drive past our farm and that includes their spray program. We appreciate our road crew and all the work they do to keep the road safe and well maintained for all travelers.
It is a long walk down the fence line as the mower is pushed through the fast growing grass in the springtime. The cows on the other side of the fence will follow along and eat the grass as quick as it the mower back is emptied. They remind us to get back to work when we take a break.
