Hello Farm Family. I hope this Newsletter finds all of you safe and well. You will have to give us a little bit of grace as the start of this new year has been chaotic to say the least. Our daughter and son in law tested positive for Covid which resulted in us being full time Grandparents to a 5 month old and if that wasn’t enough my Mom suffered from a mini stoke and was hospitalized.
Talk about life getting flipped up side down….
Thankfully, none of us here got Covid, but since we were exposed we had to quarantine so that meant I could not go to the hospital and I could not help my Dad. It was heart wrenching at times, but I prayed, our family prayed, and our spiritual family did as well. Everyone is well now and my Mom is getting stronger everyday. I’m grateful that I’ve been able to take the time off from my full time work to help everyone, but as you can imagine I’m a little more than tired.
The good news is that when I’m not being a caregiver, I’m farming!
We’re gearing up for so many things to come and I’m really enjoying seeing the beauty of planting and watering while watching God make it grow.
I really DO love farming! 💚
I love growing food. I love learning about different plants and what works well in our soil. I love the science behind it. I love how items can be recycled and then provide life for others things to thrive and grow. I love helping others grow their own gardens and I love feeding our community.
There is more good news!
I am not the only one who feels this way! For many years, you’ve heard or read about our “sister farm,” Bain Home Gardens. Perhaps you have even purchased from them in our online store. Well now you can continue to support them because they now have their own online store as well! You can find it here.
It is my sincere hope that you will support them as they were the first farm in our area to be Certified Naturally Grown and we know and trust their growing practices. You will be able to find fresh produce, dried spices, even EGGS from chickens whose flock began here on our farm. So please congratulate and support them as they too love farming and want to continue to grow clean food for our community.
Over the next few weeks as the weather warms we will be welcoming all sorts of garden greens, onions, potatoes, just so much to the farm.
For those of you looking to grow your own gardens, we are bringing back our plant sale and compost too. Be on the lookout for the date to be being announced soon. There will be organic and chemical free tomatoes, peppers, and herbs as well.
If you’re on the spectrum where you’d like us to do the work for you well, guess what? I happen to know that Kith & Kin CSA still has a few spots open for the Spring season and we’d love to have you join. You can find the purchase page here.
Thank you for spending a few minutes with us this month. I hope to see you back here again soon. Until then…..
