New to Cubits site in general, but very interested in what I see here, Kathleen. Thank you for hosting us! I hope that we get some interest in this forum and I look forward to having a place to have some discussions. Maybe we could start off with an introduction of ourselves and the following information?

Name: Ginny
Farm: Dairy, Carlberg Farm
Role: Wish I had more of a role on the dairy, but right now but I am pretty busy working full-time off of the farm at CCE and managing the household. I have a one-year-old who keeps me busy!
Favorite topic of the moment (can be absolutely anything on your mind): picking berries and canning or freezing EVERYTHING. I am new at it all but enjoying the experience!
Curious About: Why we don't currently have a cheese trail like the Finger Lakes and Hudson Valley areas...

Name: Kathleen
Farm: Dairy, Hillfarm
Role: Much less than in the past. I am at the 'been there, done that, don't want the t-shirt' stage. Mostly, I make sure that Stan has what he needs when he needs it, or as soon as humanly possible which is just a little slower than he'd like. I have done everything on the farm except spread manure (everyone has a limit), plow and climb either the 50 foot tower silo or the 60 foot.
Favorite topic of the moment: My gardens and getting them back from two years of neglect
Curious About: Why no one has noticed how many grass based dairies Chautauqua County has and taken advantage of the increased nutritional value of the milk they produce. And I'm must make clear that I'm not talking necessarily organic here.
