Happy Thanksgiving

My dear community,

Happy Gratitude week! My practice of gratitude begins from the moment I wake up in the morning. Little footsteps running into my room reminding me to let chickens out of the coop, walking outside onto the farm with biodiversity flourishing all around, plants looking just a little bit bigger each day despite the cold nights. Another year passing with workers on the farm every day rain or shine. My flock of chickens turning veggie scraps into delicious eggs. A community supporting me with a passion for good food, knowing their farmer and taking care of the planet and each other. Thank you so much for being part of this community and my passion project. Our CSA program is a big part of the farm and helps us continue to not only grow organic food, but be stewards of the land. I hope you all have a wonderful week with family, friends or however you spend it 🙂

Please remember that we are not delivering to Whole Foods this week. If you usually pick up at Whole Foods and would like to receive a box, please review our other pickup locations and shoot me a quick email. All Thursday deliveries will be made on Wednesday. Drop off delivery times aren’t set, but we will be as efficient as possible and email you when they are completed. Please pick up your CSA box at your earliest convenience.
