Working AND updating all your social media…I don’t have time for that.
However, I’m going to start trying.
I posted this on Facebook yesterday and thought I should post it here as well.
I’ve been doing this for several years now, baking that is. Business is good, and I’m happy doing what I do. Really happy. It’s nice to be ‘the baker’ and receive the praise and compliments each week at the farmers market. I can’t do it without help, though. When we first went commercial, I was ably assisted by a couple of volunteers who worked for bread. When I was able to finally start paying help during the busy summers, I was fortunate to have excellent help well worth the money. Now the business is run by myself, my wife Brandy, and my two youngest children, Madison and Jacob.
And I could not do it without their assistance.
Our lifestyle is different because of what we do. We don’t have the same days off, or free, as other families. Your day off is probably the busiest day of the week for us. Sometimes my children don’t seem to have the same level of ‘freedom’ in their lives as others do. At the same time, my children have learned to take responsibility of tasks that many adults I know aren’t capable of completing or doing well. And, for the most part, they do it joyfully.
All this to say, thanks for letting us serve you, and by serving you, allowing us to grow as a family. We appreciate it.
