News from the farm

Happy Thanksgiving!  The final delivery of the season is finally here.  (Thursday sites will receive theirs next week.)  Now it's time to put the farm to bed and enjoy a restful off-season. As the farmer's wife, I like to joke that my husband is married to both me and the farm...and it certainly feels like that during the growing season!  I look forward to this time of year when we can spend quality time together as a family.  Our two little ones are growing up so quickly and Galen has really taken to his role as "Little Farmer" this season, driving the tractor (with his daddy), washing veggies and even packing the CSA boxes!  (He loves it and begs to stay at the farm well past dinnertime when we drag him home...)  Zinn is just starting to take his first steps, so I'm sure he'll be tottering around in the warm greenhouses this winter. 

Matthew and I have so much to be thankful for this year - most importantly for our happy and healthy family, but also for the wonderful CSA community that supports our farm.  It's a funny model, this CSA thing... You're asked to put your trust in a farmer who you may have never met, sending in your hard-earned money months before you ever see a vegetable.  But it's this model of trust between farmer and member that has allowed our farm to grow.  We feel that there is nothing more important than the health of our families, our communities and our planet, and your support of our farm goes towards strengthening all of these. 

Warmest wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season! - Maggie
