Hi Friends & Farm-ily,

Week 4!  We’re half way through the Fall CSA season and nearing the 1st of November (can you believe it?)  We never thought we’d have quite the sunny season extension.. we knew we’d be busy, busy this Fall but never thought we’d be this productive!  All season our mantra has been January (as a short period of rest  for your farmers and marks the calendar at a little over a year since we began the new farm project) – here’s hoping that we get there…

We seriously love it though (otherwise I don’t think we’d willingly choose to be farmers) and the slowing down/end of Fall hibernation will set in soon enough.  Looks like tonight might be the perfect opportunity to light up a fire with temps in the lowers 30’s – high 20’s.  ‘Tis the season to nestle in and get into hibernation mode (reading, writing, creative projects, cozy fires, comfy sweaters, warm kitchens, big meals, planning… our favorite!)

Happy Farmer News…


Happy Farmer News!  Ok, so, we have some happy news to share with you all this week… your farmers are gettin’ hitched!  Brian asked Jess – in the company of a few really amazing friends – and was pleasantly surprised to hear a big, glorious “yes!”  We’re both pretty excited to see what the next year will bring.  Thanks for all your encouragement thus far.  We are truly humbled by the amazing community that surrounds us (both near and far).  It’s the best!

Farm-ily updates.  All of the critters are happy and healthy and the piglets will be a month old this Thursday.  The veggies look pretty great, we’ve officially moved out of our old house and into the new, we’ll be finished siding the barn this week and have moved all our storage crops into the barn, the garlic is already sprouting!, progress on the chicken coop continues and we’ll begin “operation move lots of farm stuff” starting with the green house this weekend.  One step closer all the time… <high five>

Just a friendly reminder…  the last CSA pick up will be the week before Thanksgiving and on that week you will receive a double share (week 7 AND 8)Plenty of goodies to share around the Thanksgiving holiday… yum!


A big thanks for bringing your crates last week!  Your farmers sure do appreciate it – keep up the good work!

Enjoy the start of your week and we’ll see you all soon!   If you tried any new and inspiring recipes recently email them our way…

Happy Hallows Eve,

Your farmers
