Bash Halow is pictured with dog Rye, A GSP, who can still out run any dog in town;) He is both friend and farmer to 45 chickens that he free ranges on his rolling property of fields, orchards and vegetable gardens all of which he proudly installed himself. No stranger to adversity or disappointment, during his farming endeavors Bash has broken his lawn mower 16 times, crashed his ATV, accidentally rolled his truck into the stream, and nearly knocked himself out by stepping on a rake and getting hit in the face Three Stooges style. So don’t be shy about telling him your troubles. He understands that mistakes are inevitable when one decides to build, grow, and live more fully.
