“You should do what YOU want to do.”

The Rolling Stones said, “You can’t always get what you want.” Isn’t that true! Life deals out a series of obligations and a healthy dose of guilt to go along with them.

There simply are things you have to do. You have to pay the bills, feed the kids, go to work, water the plants, fold the laundry and call your mother.

There are things you sign-up to do. Head the PTA fundraiser, be a board member of a local charity, act as a trustee in your church, sing in the choir (my favorite and we are recruiting!), coach Little League, take kids to instrument lessons.

There are personal things to do, such as color your hair (wouldn’t know anything about it!), read a book, Netflix & chill, or get some more sleep!

Underlying all those responsibilities, volunteering and personal care obligations are the things you really want to do.

  • Take good care of your family.
  • Raise kids who will contribute to society.
  • Be healthy.
  • Connect with loved ones.
  • Be a good citizen.

These are the things you are really trying to do when you are fulfilling all those other obligations.

So we think, you should do what YOU want. When you visit the farm, your entire family gets to pick apples, search for pumpkins, explore the maze, play on all the attractions, and you all do it together.

All that walking, climbing, jumping, and exploring is good, healthy exercise. Along the way, grandparents get to teach grandkids, kids get to run free, and you all laugh and talk as you sip fresh apple cider.

The ‘Stones finish with, “But if you try sometimes, well, you might find… You get what you need.”

Get out here on this first COOL Fall weekend and “get what you need;” do what you have really been meaning to do, all in one place, together.

See you this weekend on the farm,

Farmer Hugh
