Hello, my name is Jake. I am currently working as an intern at G Farms. A little bit about me, I am a junior at Rockwall High School. I am currently serving as one of our FFA chapter officers. I have a big interest in agriculture, mechanics, and law enforcement. My plans after high school are to attend college and become a Texas Game Warden. This week at G Farms has been a whirlwind of activity. From dawn till dusk, I've immersed myself in the task of cutting hay, discovering the sheer dedication and physical effort required to maintain a productive farm. I witnessed the delicate dance between man and machine, where precision and timing can make all the difference. Despite the long hours and grueling work, there's an undeniable sense of fulfillment that comes from seeing the bountiful harvest unfold before your eyes. Lessons Learned: Harnessing Breakdowns for Breakthroughs Working on the farm has taught me invaluable lessons about resilience and adaptability. I've come to realize that breakdowns aren't synonymous with failure but rather stepping stones toward breakthroughs. Farm equipment, like any machinery, is susceptible to malfunctions and unforeseen issues. However, these hiccups have taught me the importance of troubleshooting, problem-solving, and embracing setbacks as opportunities for growth. Each breakdown presents a chance to learn, improve, and ultimately excel. "The Big Leap": Empowering Perspective During my breaks from the field, I delved into "The Big Leap," a remarkable book by Gay Hendricks. One of the powerful lessons I drew from its pages is the concept of jealousy and how it can be used as fuel. Hendricks highlights that when people are mean or jealous, it often stems from their own fears and insecurities. Rather than letting their negativity bring me down, I've learned to reframe their actions as a reminder of my potential and a catalyst for my personal growth. By redirecting their negative energy into positive motivation, I've found newfound strength and determination to overcome obstacles. The Farm: At G Farms we have a couple different things we offer. One of the things we offer is our 1100% grass fed beef we sell in ⅛ ¼ ½ or just ground beef, we also are doing flowers you can come out to the farm and pick as many flowers as you want and go to hams orchard down the road for lunch, we also do a bee removal service and afterwards we will put you in touch with our construction company DC&H construction for anything that need repairs.
