Food for the Fall

We’ve been quiet  in our public presence during this transition season of darkening light.  We’ve been attending conferences, catching up on field work,  and focusing on self renewal.  It has been good.   We are sorry that those of you who missed the last few markets have been questioning where to find our goods.

As I’ve been typing the outdoor world has transitioned from heavy wind and rain to sun.  The onions and leeks we transplanted last week will be happy (and hopefully ready for you first thing in the spring!), and now us farmers have more carrots to dig.

We are thinking of you, and look forward to seeing you at market, or the farm (or both!) very soon!  And, we are looking forward to helping stock your holiday with carrots, sausage, yarn, and more!

Under the full moon,
