Oh, Cheesy me...

I pulled into the parking lot dreading the experience. I planned on hating it. I wanted to be mad and disgusted. But, I went into PCC Natural Markets in Edmonds, Washington, anyway.

Hi there I'm Randy Winch and I'm 10 years old. I live on a dairy farm that has 300 cows. We milk 180 cows and the rest are dry cows or calves.

At the Grant County Fair I showed a Milking Shorthorn.  And I won a gold coin.  And at the Fennimore Fair I showed a Dutch Belted.  And I won $2.  And I had fun.  And when I get older I want to show like my big brother. 


Note from mom:  It was fun to sit on the couch and have Matthew tell me about showing this summer.  The above words are straight from him.

A Look At Our Shiny New Barn.

After months of planning, building, and anxious mooing, our shiny new barn is finally complete. I’m sure the Dairy Man would love to take a moment to bask, but he’s already moved on to other projects.

Oof. Just a little manure pit. Things never slow down around here.

But, back to the beauteous barn. As you know, Dairy Man decided to…
