    Sixty Seconds with Judi There are some days when I come to work and I am overwhelmed by the beauty of the farm. Today was one of those days.

    Sixty Seconds with Judi This weekend is the unofficial start of summer and after the long cold and wet spring we’ve had, it feels so deserving to know that we are rewarded with summer days.
