Cedar Creek Plow Day

As a young boy I told myself that one day I would organize an event here in Tennessee to help the public get a glimpse of what we as horse and mule enthusiasts all over get to experience. Finally, this past October, a young boy’s dream came true as my wife and many friends came together to pull off the 1st Annual Cedar Creek Plow Day. We got to incorporate a lot of different activities using horses and mules at this event. I love new ideas in the direction of old ways and equipment from yesteryear.

Some people might count sheep when having difficulty going to sleep. I list horses I have loved and worked, horses who have owned me; Goldie, Queenie, Bud, Dick, Bobbie, Carol, Sara, Tess, Moe (had to change his name), Bud, Bob, Ted, Tom, Tip, Mel, Abe, two Rosies, Red, Blue, Cali, Lana, Tuck, Barney, Molly, Polly, Anna, Queen, Granite, Red Bob, Matt, another Ted, Rex, Jiggs, Pete, Prince, Pat, Charlie, Dandy, Tommie, Juniper, and now Vic and Pepper. Believe me or not; that is but the tip of the iceberg.

Selling to Stores

In order to have a planned, equitable, local purchasing program between farmers and co-ops or local grocery stores, both farmers and buyers have to make it work. One of the ways to get a local buying program going is for the co-op to host a meeting with all interested farmers in the winter. A winter meeting benefits the farmers whose market season is slowing down or finished before seed buying for the season takes place. However, winter is the busiest time of year for food retailers as many farmers markets, CSAs and farm stands close for the season and holidays approach.
