Our efforts to prepare for massive rainfalls and  winter snow melt continue with the creation of a drainage ditch.  The farm is on a slight decline so we receive all the run off from the neighboring properties above us.  The BF’s idea was to dig a ditch on the property line and connect it with a current ditch that separates the pastures. The ditch was causing major muddy problems with every rain fall so we decided to put culvert pipes under the high hoof traffic areas. In one weekend he was able to dig the ditch and put in the pipes.  The end result is it looks like the earth was never disturbed.  Big thanks goes out to him for borrowing the mini excavator from work and working his magic with the machine to give us an excellent end product.
