For a combined birthday and graduation present, he got a very nice chicken scalder! It will help him a lot with chicken processing when that starts back up in early May. He has recently taken over the poultry operation of the farm, and is investing his money into the chicken expenses, deciding how many to raise throughout the year, choosing which farmers markets will be best for his products, and a host of other responsibilities related to the chickens, in addition to his other jobs around the farm. Also, he is working hard finishing up his school work since he is graduating this year. Elliott is such a hard worker. He never complains about work. I have never heard him complain about milking the cows, and he has to do this job every morning and every evening nearly every day of the year.
Happy Birthday Elliott!
