With the recent drop in temperatures, the impending threat of some light frost in the air, and whispers of potential snow, local farmers are beginning to switch gears to prepare for the cold months.

Before diving too far into that preparation, farmers first need to work through the wet conditions created by rain experienced this past week. Farmers across the area have seen different amounts but one local farmer said they saw well over five inches of rain within the last week and a half.
