Fork Right Farm in national spotlight!

This morning, Fork Right Farm was featured in a new farmer profile on the National Young Farmer’s Coalition (NYFC) Blog.  It is a great article that describes the multi-generational component of our farm and our farming philosophy.  Matt subscribes to the NYFC newsletter and several weeks back they were seeking guest bloggers.  This article happened to be the application that Matt submitted.  While he wasn’t selected as a blogger, it was pretty cool to see Fork Right Farm featured.

As the article described and you have probably learned from reading our blog, we operate at two locations.  We began at our own farm and residence and have expanded to his parent’s farm; the farm where Matt grew up and was the fifth generation to live and farm there.   Since we still don’t have barns at our own farm (besides the pole barn house that we live in) we had to have a warm place to farrow pigs for the winter, and a good thing because it was tough winter in the Midwest.  The barn is iconic in so many ways, but that is material for another post.  For now, I’ll leave you with a recent photo, and of course, you’ll have to read the article that put Fork Right Farm in the spotlight, even if it was a small spotlight.  Here is a link to the article:  http://www.youngfarmers.org/introducing-fork-right-farm-of-indiana/
