Florida Herb House Bits - Working On The Farm

Without farming and farmers, our Florida Herb House organic and all natural store would not exist. Let's all take our hats off and salute all the hard working men and women who work to maintain the backbone of our agricultural world. After moving to Florida in 2004 the owner of Florida Herb House, Stephen Sharp had the pleasure of becoming friends with a local farmer and got to know first hand what is involved in a hard day's work on the farm. Let's join Stephen now and live a day on a Florida farm.

"Early to Bed and Early to Rise Makes a Man Healthy, Wealthy and Wise." These famous words farmer, Bill, cites could not be closer to the truth for any dedicated farmer. Waking before sunrise is a daily routine for Bill and he simply loves it. He goes on to say "Just like any business the early bird gets the worm. Seeing the sun rise every day brings a new adventure on my farm and the beginning of another great day." See farmer Bill owns a large ninety-acre farm in Florida and makes use of every little bit of it whether it is for hay, crops or animals. Bill stays busy seven days a week during the sowing and harvesting seasons on the farm.

So we started out at about 5 am for a quick feed to some of the smaller animals and horses. After that we visited the portion of the farm where Bill gathers hay. Have you ever drove by a farm and seen all those neat looking rolls of hay that resemble large wagon wheels? This is not an illusion. This is how hay is bundled in modern times and the result of modern day technologies and inventions of amazing machines. These inventions have cut down work loads and increased production for farmers all over the world. It all started in 1837 when a man named John Deere debuted his shiny new steel plow invention for all to marvel at. This one of a kind plow was the only one of its kind that could conquer the dense, mineral rich soil of the western United States. It was the beginning of a new era in farming, and before long came the hay machine that we were about to ride on. This wonderful invention would cut, roll and tie hay into nice neat bundles, without any other equipment needed. It cut the farmers workload down by about 80% over the old conventional horse driven days.

After a quick lunch it was tend to the cows. We spent about two hours herding the cows, feeding them and giving them fresh water to drink. Bill's cows were used to make milk and produce thousands of gallons of milk per year. After this it was time to hit the vegetables and pick the days greens for Bill's produce stand. His roadside stand was a popular place for all locals and a favorite for some of the freshest and tastiest veggies around. We spent about three more hours picking everything from cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, squash, and zucchinis. By now it was about 6pm and we were exhausted. We thanked Bill and he sent us off with a fresh basket of world class veggies to take with us. What a day!
