Closed today for flooding

flood2

Unfortunately, we’ll be closed for our Saturday barn market hour today.

This is our second flood in two weeks, which is very unusual, especially this early in the season.  This particular flood is expected to crest shortly at 57.32 feet…a ‘major flood’ is deemed 58 feet.  Everyone is safe and sound – we moved all of our animals and equipment to high ground yesterday in preparation.

In case you’re curious as to how we monitor floods, we use a couple of different resources to see what the river is doing:

We keep an eye on these regularly, and when we see that a flood is coming, they help us to get a general idea of how high the water may rise.

We’re wishing all the best to our neighbors affected by the flooding – stay safe, everyone!
