A recent phone call I had with the farmers co-op:
I’d like to schedule the lime spreader to come out.
Sure, how many acres?
We need 22 acres covered. That will be six different pastures. The amount of lime varies per pasture, but it adds up to 26 tons, total.
Well, we’re a bit backed up right now. It’ll be a few weeks.
No problem, we just wanted to get in the queue.
Ok. What is the name of your farm?
Winged Elm Farm.
(Laughs) Ok. We Don’t Farm. That’s a new one.
What? No, we do farm. Winged Elm Farm.
Oh, sorry. We Do Farm. Interesting name.
Yeah, it’s a tree around here. We were going to call it White Oak Farm, but we found out there were hundreds of those around the country. We are the only ones with our name.
I know that’s right. Ok. We will call you the day before we can come out. There might be rain next week. That’ll push us back even further before we can get into the fields.
Sounds good. Thanks.
The co-op driver came out two weeks later and spread the lime. Nice guy. When he was done he handed me the invoice. Printed at the top was our farm name, We Do Farm Farm.
