My husband and I had to do the hardest thing we have ever done this evening. We had to fire our farm-help family which included giving them a 30-day notice on the house they live in, which we own. It's kind of complicated, but basically they worked for us in exchange for a place to live. We have had problems with their work for several months now. Things would get forgotten, wouldn't be done properly, etc. Some mistakes were ones that could have cost us thousands of dollars. We are a very, very young farm and we can't afford to have mistakes like that made. We already can't make all our bills right now, though we expect things to get better as the farm does better . We simply couldn't afford to keep paying for work that isn't done correctly. I feel like the devil right now as this puts this family out of a home. I know we made the right decision for our business and our family, but it is definitely the hardest decision I have ever had to make in my life. If you pray, please pray that this family finds a new home and new job very quickly. This experience has definitely taught me the lesson that everyone always says "don't go into business with friends or family without being ready for it to end badly". It has ended badly for this family and for us and I will never put myself in this position again.
