Sojourner Farms LLC- Olean, NY

Sojourner Farms was the very first farm I ever worked on back in 2012. My mom met Pierre, the owner of the farm, at a medical meeting and he invited me out to come work. This was what made me fall in love with farming and decide I wanted to do something with it long term. However, at the time I was still very unsure of what that would look like. Their farm was an animal farm that had cattle, pigs, laying hens, and  meat chickens. My job was to feed the animals and move the cows from pasture to pasture everyday so they would have enough grass to eat. During my stay I also learned how to make soap and bake bread from scratch. I got to work at my first farmers market and had an overall amazing experience!
