And … It’s Up

Building construction 08 29 17Building finished 08 30 17The Lucky Badger Farms family wanted to make a big leap forward this season. We’ve done exactly that with yesterday’s completion of our first building.

We’ll use it for all the basic things you’d expect of a farm building: store a few tools, in our case, process our crop, and, of course, get out of the sun every now and then!

It’s a very welcome — and long-overdue — addition to the business that comes after several fits and starts that included an ambitious, well-intentioned but futile effort to renovate a1900s era bank building in Lineville.

While the new building didn’t go up soon enough to help us with the 2017 growing season, it bodes well for 2018. We’re already clearing several long-fallow plots for spring 2018 planting and we know we’re on the right track going forward.

From the Ground Up

Exciting news on the farm after a summer marked mainly by drought conditions.

Our contractors, Jason Gibson and his crew from Jason Gibson Construction in Ridgeway, Mo., have started their work on our new building. Day One saw the guys frame the walls. Weather permitting, the roof trusses are scheduled to go up tomorrow.

The building will finally give us a spot to process the catnip crop, which will make us much more efficient next season.
