What’s been going on!

It is always good to go away and view life from a distance in a you can now see the fields for the pepper plants kind of way.  Nothing like a long walk in a completely different environment like the desert to open your mind and thoughts.

As the 36th season rolls to a finish and the 37th already underway in the greenhouse and fields we have a lot to be grateful for.  I am eternally grateful to be with Betsy, to have shared this place and journey with her all these years (and she lets me go away hiking too!).  We are grateful for Jennie’s presence, hard work and partnership with us so that the Farm will continue into the next generation.

We are grateful for this amazingly beautiful and productive piece of land set in a community that values what we do every day.  And we are especially grateful for all of you who eat our food and support our efforts to create a more sustainable agricultural system and local economy, you are the nourishment that allows us to continue to strive to do better.

We hope to be able to greet all of you at market on Saturday but if we don’t have a chance we wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah and the rest of the holidays.  We will see you in the New Year for sure!
