My work as a farmer is really rooted in idea of lifelong learning. I’m always learning, whether it’s daily through observation of my livestock or from season-to-season how our pastures grow and flourish (or, not so much with a drought year like last summer).

As the new year begins, so does a new plan and set of goals for my farm business. This year I’ve decided to set the content to my blog for the entire year. Yes, the whole year. I’m taking a nod to my old days in corporate communications and as an editor and taking a more through approach to planning. It’s a more thoughtful approach to providing you with more meaningful content related to goats, whether that’s about raising them, grazing them or on the marketing side.

I used to read all the time growing up. It was something I loved to do – a good story or learning about something new. With time and life, it got away from me. A few years ago, I decided to start reading again, mostly to help my brain wind down from the day. That goal morphed into reading at least 50 books this year. Welp, I missed the mark and have read 88, with three more in progress to kick me over 90 books.
I’ll admit, 90% of my reading is/was audiobooks. Given the nature of farming, it just has worked well to listen to books while I work, doing chores, building fence and other tasks around the farm. But, I do enjoy the feel and experience of reading a book in hard copy.
