Merry Christmas from the Anderson Farm

Whew! What a busy month it has been.  December seems to fly by just like the month of August when we are in harvest.  Life on the farm has slowed to a snail's pace, but in our personal lives, this is the time we get to reconnect with family and friends as most of the year is devoted to raising crops.  I love Christmas and start preparing for the big day right after Thanksgiving. The pace is hectic, just like harvest, but the focus is purely social, such as an annual Christmas party hosted at our house, gathering the women of our family  to bake cookies, plus everything else associated with the holiday season. 

After Christmas I plan on blogging about where the crops go after they are harvested. You will get a behind the scenes look at how hummus is made, where the wheat goes after it is taken to the grain terminals and how the wheat labs at the University of Idaho and Washington State University help the farmers to  raise better crops.   So stay tuned!

Late last night,  I received a call from Kaitlyn, our youngest daughter, telling us that  her new boyfriend (whom we have not met yet) can't get home for Christmas, so she is bringing him with her.... well a quick dash to town to grab a gift card!

With that, we wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas,

Joe and Gayle Anderson
