Twin Oaks Dairy: The Next Generation

At Twin Oaks Dairy there have been many transitions over the years. In 1993 we ventured into new territory with our dairy herd as we transitioned to intensive rotational grazing, turning surrounding crop land into permanent pasture and meeting with success as our cows became happy and healthier eating a regular diet of lush, green grass.  1995 marked the beginning of our transition to organic and we became a certified organic farm in 1998.  Continuing the trend,  we welcome yet another transition this year, this time a generational one.  On October 1st, Rick and Kathie's twenty-three-year-old son Kirk, became the newest partner and co-owner of the farm. It's been a natural progression, as Kirk has steadily increased his hours of work and knowledge of the farm over his years of growing up here.   As he takes on more decision making responsibilities and work, Kirk will be taking over his uncle's share of the farm as Bob is phasing into retirement.  Having farmed for decades, Bob will remain in his family's home that resides next to the milking barn and plans to stay involved, working a reduced number of hours per week.  We're looking forward to the years to come and are thankful that a new generation is at the helm to help steer the farm well as we navigate future transitions.
The generations: Kirk, Kathie, Rick and Bob

  1. Our Dolphins Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to a traditional flagpole, tailgate pole, or our 6' aluminum flagpole. The perimeter of our Dolphins Flag is double stitched and the Officially Licensed NFL Miami Dolphins team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, this flag is also perfect to hang in your game room, sports room, office, or kids room.

  3. È interessante notare che il nuovo Boca Juniors Maglia introduce un design che trae ispirazione dalla camicia casa. Prevalentemente bianco, vanta un giallo e un cerchio della marina sulla parte anteriore, appassire ex tra cui il logo dello sponsor. Una linea blu scuro corre lungo ogni lato della camicia Boca Juniors 2016-2017 distanza, così come intorno alla parte posteriore del collare.maglie calcio poco prezzo,

  4. I not sure players like Pablo are always grown men. They are plucked out of poor countries at 15 16 and made into professional baseball players. They aren educated much beyond early high school. It a perfectly reasonable number for a 25 year old goaltender who was a couple years away from UFA status and who was a Vezina finalist this season. The deal puts him sixth in cap hits among goalies, which might seem a little high given that Hellebuyck has exactly one season as a starter under his belt. But teams always pay out the nose for big contract years, and he probably still improving given that he only 25..

    Preparation is necessary to continue this discussion of the Holy Bible and some of the world's oldest and most sacred writings. The numbers recorded are absolute, precise definitions of ancient calendar mathematics perhaps 10,000 years ago. The Antediluvian Patriarchs, or pre flood fore fathers, are generally considered simply leaders. (tags: Jordan Shoes For Sale Cheap, 2020 Jordan Release Dates, Ray Ban Sunglasses Outlet)

    Let please raise the bar and start talking about the issues. Non of the candidates are better prepare than Cabrera to do that. I have been staying out of this conversation to make sure that I had both sides of the argument. "I hate to tip my cap to a hitter, but I threw a 3 2 curve and he hit the dog snot out of it. Then you hang a curveball to the eight hitter and give up a double that scores a run. That chaps my butt a little bit."

  5. Weird moment in this game: Sergio Romo jogging in to pitch in a game the Giants were losing, while Brian Wilson walked down to the visiting bullpen. Wilson was sitting at 89 mph for most of the inning but still managed to blow one of those fastballs past Pablo Sandoval and later get out of the eighth. The boos when Wilson walked to the mound were the loudest of the season here, which got me thinking: Maybe you all should just give him a standing ovation and see if that messes him up? The guy feeds off the negative energy and the tag. (tags: Jordan Shoes For Sale Cheap, 2020 Jordan Release Dates, Ray Ban Sunglasses Outlet)

    In the opening overs, it looked as if the gods were not smiling on Glamorgan. Firstly David Harrison, who had been so impressive on Saturday, was forced out of the attack after damaging a finger as his hand hit the stumps as he ran in to bowl his fourth ball. Then Kasprowicz had both of the Northants openers caught in the slips, but each time the big Queenslander had overstepped the crease..

    1 pick. They need Cleaves atthe box office.Several Miami players already have been told the news: Pat Riley is dynamiting his team. The Heat are shopping Jamal. Facing Walpole High senior Matt Donato, a 6 foot 2 inch Tufts commit, Fitzgibbons knew he needed to swing at any scent of a strike. Eyeing a fastball over the plate, the sophomore righthanded hitter smacked a double deep to left field at Franklin High, plating two runs and propelling the top ranked Panthers to a 6 2 nonleague baseball win over No. 7 Walpole Friday afternoon (tags: Cheap Real Yeezys, Discount Jordan Shoes Wholesale, Cheap Yeezys).

Any garden netting, such as pond netting, should be replaced with solid metal mesh."The hedgehog was taken to a wildlife centre to recover from his ordeal, which happened on August 19.Fears after gigantic sea eagle escapes base with public urged not to approachBirmingham lecturer leaves neighbours gobsmacked with stunning meadow in front gardenSadly a few days later an independent vet decided due to the serious injuries he had sustained the kindest thing was to put him to sleep to end his suffering.Cara added: "Although this did not have a happy ending I am grateful that the homeowner spotted the distressed hedgehog and reported the matter to us so he didn't suffer a lingering death."The householder, like many members of the public, had no idea the netting would pose a risk to wildlife and were obviously saddened by the incident but are keen for us to help raise awareness of the issue."
