A Three Fold Cord

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12.

This scripture has never been more applicable than our situation at Garden Spot Farms. We have been so blessed to have Richard and Susan Greif in Laurie’s and my life.

This year they have been so gracious along with Chad and Amanda to lease us the land we need to open our market garden so aptly named Garden Spot Farms because the Greif Legacy Farm is located on Garden Spot Rd.

It’s wonderful to have such an opportunity for building a business. Farming is not a done deal and and takes more than luck. Hard work, support and faith can get the job done…. yes a little luck would help as well.

Not only have the Greifs leased us the space but the support has been phenomenal. Richard has provided support in so many ways. His knowledge of equipment and engineering is unsurpassed by anyone I know. Susan who is sooo comfortable around farm life and animals and has more ideas than you can shake a stick at. Not that I would shake a stick at her!

Chad, Richard and Susan’s son, and my son-law, is becoming such a great resource. He is purposeful and methodical in his ways and is an awesome asset when it comes to long term planning. He is a great father to my grand-children and a good husband to my daughter Amanda.

Amanda I can say without hesitation is a wonderful mom. She uses every situation to teach her kids the values needed to face tomorrows challenges. Always gracious making us delicious farm victuals and providing a place for R and R.

Laurie and I could not be happier with what God has given us. Friends, family, support, faith, strength and vision. Everyone gives what God has given to them.

This should be an AWESOME year for Laurie and I.
