Like most of Virginia, the Producers for Grayson Natural Foods have been affected by the storms and power outages. River Ridge lost power Friday, had power for a brief time Monday afternoon only to be lost again. Brantley Ivey (Manager of River Ridge) and his employees with help from Gary Mitchell and friends have been moving generators around to turn water pumps on to insure all the cattle have plenty of fresh water. We have also been spending time cleaning up trees that have fallen on fences. Thankfully, we have a break on our hay harvesting at the moment and we still have another month until the heifers start to calve. So it’s pretty much just another week in the diverse life of a cattle farmer!
