My Farm Journey Blog #4

After graduating from college with a degree in Finance, I continued to work at what is now known as the Diakon Wilderness Center.  I worked on the weekends, putting in over 40 hours Fri., Sat. and Sun.  This left me with a nice chunk of time Mon. - Thurs. to do other things.  I spent a lot of time reading and studying about rotational grazing.  I learned what plants should be in the pasture, the rotation duration should be 30 days because most pasture legumes and fescues reach peek nutrition every 30 days along with how to best supplement an...

My Farm Journey, Blog #3

To review where we are after two blog posts about my farm journey.  My early years growing up on the farm were good years filled with lots of outdoor space to run, play, explore and have fun.  Once I was old enough to work on the farm, I worked my tail off!  I learned a ton about farming, though some of the lessons I unlearned when I got old enough to think for myself and creatively come up with better ways to do thing (more about later).   Now I'm at college age.  I attended Shippensburg University majoring in finance.  At...

My Farm Journey, Blog #2

My Farm journey, blog #1

Greetings!  My name is Corey Carothers.  I am the operator of Carwood Farm, proud father of three and the luckiest man alive to be married to Kelly Carothers. I've decided to tell my farm story via blogs.  I don't know if anyone will be interested in reading them but I think they may be a bit therapeutic for me and perhaps a bit inspirational to a few. Of course, I was born and raised on the farm.  I remember my very early years spending a lot of time outside (as you can imagine). The farm was my jungle gym; playing...

Do you have faith?

Do you have faith?

While walking through the sweet corn patch the other day, I was reminded of how important faith is in life.  I don't necessarily mean faith in a higher being, but belief that things will work out.  Some may consider these two perspectives as being the same thing.  As I walked through the patch I observed how well the sweet corn was growing.  The patch seemed healthy.  Only a week before, I was walking through the patch and I remembered thinking just the opposite.  I thought then, the plants seemed too small for their age and the color of the leaves did...
