Bittersweet Acres Farm

Information on Future Plans

by on Dec.01, 2010, under Uncategorized

We hope you all had a great and safe Thanksgiving and are getting ready for the Christmas season. We want to apologize for the muddy mess that is now out here. The consistent rain since Thanksgiving day has made a disaster of the construction/demolition area around barn one and the new barn. If the ground is sturdy enough for a dump truck today, we are having a load of rock delivered to help with the mess. If it can’t come today, we will have it delivered tomorrow. Hopefully that will help with the mudfest going on out here.
Regarding the move and demo, I want to inform you of the progress. The tack boxes should be completed today if all goes as planned. Patrick is going to finish picking up the new barn this afternoon. So the only thing we are now waiting on is for KU to hook up the electric. Patrick moved everything underground and we are just waiting for the final approval from KU to hook it up. The crew that is tearing down old Barn one is suppose to be back today. It is a large group of 8-10 men from Midway who are taking the barn. Hopefully with that many men on the job, it won’t take them long to complete the demo, assuming the weather cooperates. As soon as the barn is gone, the addition will be finished. Then maybe we will stop making messes for awhile.
Just so you know, future plans for the winter include: cleaning up, landscaping, creating the trailer parking area, completing the addition of Barn with the lounge, bathroom, cross ties, hot water, and doors, fencing, and general maintenance. We do want to thank you for your patience during our major construction projects. So many little things we would like to address but with the renovation, construction, and demo of barns, those things have just been pushed down the priority list. Now that those things are being wrapped up over the next couple of months, we hope you will see major improvements to the general care of Bittersweet Acres.
We also want to welcome two new boarders in Barn 2, Shannon and Suzanne. Please make a point to meet these new boarders.
We also hope to see many of you next Monday night at Ramseys for the Christmas Party. I sent an email out about it yesterday. I think it will be a great time of fellowship.
Thanks so much for your patience and allowing us to provide a place for you and your horse(s).
Patrick and Erica
