    Freedom to Grow

    With Juneteenth and Father's Day being so close this year, I have reflected on my capability to provide for my family, a human right that my ancestors were never allowed because of their physical bondage. Whether it is working with the bees, planting crops, playing soccer with the kids, or looking for insects on the farm my family and I have established a relationship to the land that our ancestors did not have here in America.

    Dad's Shadow

    Introducing me to horses was not the only thing my dad did. I was able to observe him as an entrepreneur. When he had an idea, he acted on it. That is exactly how I am today. Being able to see ideas come to fruition shaped my belief that anything is possible. I was a kid with a dream of having all the horses and all the animals.

    MOTHERHOOD LOOKS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE

    I have no children, but I am a mother. I have never conceived a child, yet still I am a mother. I hadn’t envisioned myself to be on the cusp of 33, single, and managing a farm with livestock and a business on my own. I’ve always wanted to have children of my own, but I now realize that being a mother isn’t limited to humans raising humans.

    The Holiday Season With Sankofa Farm

    Our holiday season is typically filled with amplified love, a ton of traveling, and the best food of the year. Growing up, my family always put a special emphasis on Christmas and Kwanzaa; this remains true today. The holiday season is my favorite because it allows me the time to slow down, kick off my Muck boots and truly embrace the beautiful village that I am so blessed to call my family. As a farmer, this takes a lot of planning long before the holiday season starts - however, it’s all worth it.

    Holidays For The Farmer

    For a farmer, the holidays can be more than a meal and time spent with family. For instance, premature newborn goats might be in the living room on thanksgiving because they required around the clock care after being rejected by their mother. Or a delayed arrival to dinner because of an ill goat and the need to finish up on mucking out and bedding down pens for winter kids.

    By Although I started my farming career pretty late in life there is something nostalgic about shearing day. Maybe it's the smell of sweat mixed with sun cream carried on the summer breeze or maybe it's the comfort felt at knowing it's a big job done and you have a month of not panicking about flystrike, a fresh start almost.

    A LIVESTOCK FARM IS NEVER TRULY HIBERNATING

    In the heat of July I think fondly, and often about January bluebird days such as this. July is unrelenting for a farmer. The weeds and grass grow at a nearly unsustainable, breathless rate. They don’t allow for reflection, or planning, or yoga, or reading. They are devoted entirely to manual and endless labor. Every hour of the sunlit day is used and consumed by the greedy July farm.
