We decided not to do a farmers market this year and then at the last minute a new market opened up. It was in a great location and during the midweek, which was perfect for the farm operations. Last year we did a weekend market and felt we were losing out on all the fun weekend events so we decided to focus on a work/life balance this year. Unfortunately the market has been postponed till the end of June.
We love having people out on the farm to show them how we grow and to share our story. I always like to think of our farm as a microcosm of the world – I moved home to help my dad with health issues, he had lots of junk that needed to be reused and there was a front lawn that was going to waste. These are some of the biggest issues I see facing the world (health issues, reusing/recycling of whats already here and waste of resources) and here was an opportunity to make a positive difference.
I love looking back over old photos of what the property looked like before I started working on it. Come take a look at what we have done and where we are going. The farm stand will be open this next Tuesday from 4 to 7 pm and we will have it every Tuesday till October.
