More About Us: The Country Way

Well….really this post is just about me…..Monte Tareski
I have had many people ask me. 
“What drives you? Why do you do all of this stuff for others?”
My simple response is….. “That I can”
You see, I was born and raised on a farm. A rather large one at that (more like a ranch really). We ran over 70 head of cattle, milk cows, horses, pigs, chickens, sheep……and just about a million cats. 

“Why would that matter?” you may be asking yourself……
Well here’s my take on the whole deal……
We worked hard, played hard and slept hard…..
When we were growing up it was no stretch to run over to the neighbors farm and help them put up hay. Take care of their animals when they were out of town. Get up in the middle of night in the winter and help them deliver calves. It was also not a stretch for them to do the same for us. 
I had four older brothers and my father didn’t hesitate to volunteer us for anything that was needed (not that we minded at all). But here is the deal. I learned early on that what you do for others will come back around three fold. 
To this day I believe that to be true. If you do what you say you are going to do and do it with enthusiasm you will be blessed with the same from others.

I don’t hold this to be a religious philosophy or a spiritual “awakening” in any way shape or form. It is just the way we were raised. 

The County Way…..
