Dear Farm Friends,  This week, more than most, I felt a deep desire to reconnect to what matters most. I hear the news and I feel like our species is getting so very lost. I watch myself as I go through my day on autopilot just trying to get the necessities checked off so that everyone has eaten... read more »

The dust is cleared from the air and the intense irrigation shuffle is turned down a beat or two.... read more »

Greetings Farm Friends, We hope you had a nice holiday. This past week gave us a great opportunity to focus on our interdependence as living creatures on this planet.

Good Morning! What a week!  Late June thunderstorms are such a treat. The whole farm was irrigated at once, and the cool temperatures are a relief to our freshly planted fall crops, and to your farmers. We even managed to sneak away as a family to see Raffi in Portland. He is a true master of his... read more »

Hi Farm Friends! ***Don't forget to swap things out if you'd like! You can fill your share with turnips- assuming there are some still available.*** As I write this I'm savoring the long day and appreciating the changes in seasons, day length, and life.
