"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

A Senator's visit

On Monday, we were privileged to be visited by Senator Casey, one of our PA senators.  He was here to promote the Farm Bill and tour our facilities.  We had a very good time, and Duchess enjoyed being spoiled by all the people who were here.

An interesting tidbit: 20 years ago, Senator Casey's father, who was then the Governor of PA visited the farm to tour the farm and see the field terraces along with the Governor of MD.

Some one else wanted some attention

She slept well all afternoon!
It was a great time and we felt very privileged to have the Senator with us!


  1. Thanks for the pictures and narrative Valerie, you did a great job covering the event, maybe the news could take a few pointers! It was a great day. yg

  2. Josh & Valerie - Thank you so much for hosting Sen. Casey on your farm. This is an excellent example of grassroots action that is very effective. On behalf of the staff at Land O'Lakes, we are very proud of you.

    1. Thank you! It really was a privilege for the Senator to be here. We're glad we could represent Land O'Lakes in this way!
