Last Saturday was our first day to open the farm 'stand' for anyone who wanted to come. Setting up that morning was a little like being kids 'playing' farmers. How do we arrange the vegetables? Where do we put them? Will they hold up on the slightly sunny day? Who will come? And, what do we have available to sell and what do we need to keep for our subscriber boxes? We had a great time showing a few new people the farm and meeting a few more of our subscribers. A nice surprise was meeting Kerry who is co-owner of the Great Harvest Bread Company on the Westside. She came to trade cinnamon bread for vegetables. I KNOW we got the better end of that deal!
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
