Another great year for the Cornell Farmily. Cattle prices are holding well. Bull sales and bred female sales are great this year. With our Artisanal Chicken quota we raised 800 broilers to sell at the markets. We tiled some more land and are in the process of expanding our grain storage facilities.
The big news at Cornell Farms is that both Rebecca and Garnet got married this year. Rebecca and Kelsey were married July 7, 2018 in a Wedding Barn north of London, Ontario - close to where
Rebecca lives and works as a large animal veterinarian. Pat performed the ceremony and it was a great time! Kelsey is in Brew School at Niagara College. Only 20 people are accepted so we are very proud of her accomplishment. Rebecca and Kelsey are spending Christmas with Kelsey's parents in Florida. Here are a few pictures from that wedding.
Garnet and Michelle were married on the farm August 18, 2018. Between the Clysdale and Beck families, it was quite the party! Garnet continues to work as an Environmental Specialist fro New Gold - Rainy River Project. Michelle works in a local Optometrist office in Fort Frances. Both Rebecca and Garnet were in each other's wedding party which was very nice. Here are a few pictures from that celebration. Notice the great picture of all the grandparents.
To celebrate both weddings, we celebrated with a traditional Scottish Ceilidh in the Barn in September. We brought the Cutting Edge Band over from Scotland to play. It was a great night!
Pat and three of her sisters hiked around Iceland for 2 weeks in May. What an adventure! Kim's parents, Gordon and Jeannine and Pat's parents, Earle and Joanne are still going strong - very busy! Kim continues to travel throughout the region for Farmers' Markets on top of all his farming duties. Pat continues to work as a Justice of the Peace based in the Fort Frances Courthouse. We also continue to have barn concerts throughout the summer.
