“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” -Wendell Berry Been thinking and talking a lot about soil health the past couple days as we have been connecting with farmers from around our region. It’s easy to underestimate the importance of soil and the urgency in which we need to repair our relationship with it. It makes us proud and inspired to gather with other folks who are putting the work in to build healthy soil and change the way food is grown. This is why we do what we do, to make our little mark on the world a positive impact on our community, our farm, our planet. Thanks for putting it so eloquently as always Wendell Berry.
We weren’t planning on getting a dog when Snoopy came into our lives. He belonged to the neighbor of the farm we were working on in Northern California, and we like to believe he chose us. He started following us around, and crying outside our door at night to let him in. Eventually we got the nerve to ask if we could adopt him and unbelievably they let us have him. Christian and I vowed to each other if we were going to take him, we had to keep farming as long as he was alive if for no other reason than to give him an even better farm life. When we worked at Rock Bottom Ranch he earned a place on the employee board as the director of relaxation. He knew how to chill hard, unless of course there was ham within scent range. He was a better mouser in those early years than most of the cats we had. And was a huge hit with the kids, even if he stole their lunch. It’s impossible to fill the void you left yesterday, Mr. buddy. I am so glad we got to have you while we did and am so happy you picked us. We will love you forever, enjoy the all you can eat pork buffet in heaven. You are missed by many 💔
Our family grew by 4lbs yesterday when this future little sheep herder came home. Still settling on a name... . . . . #puppy #auggiepuppy #aussiecorgi #toocuteforwords #farmdog
2018 presented the most rewarding and trying challenges Christian and I have faced together. We began the lease at our current location (Emma Open Space) in March—right as the farm season began to pick up speed. Other farmers in the valley offered up greenhouse space and watering help for our earliest seedlings, and we got creative to work around the lack of electricity or water through early summer. July brought us a little shed (some shade/shelter!), but it also brought the Lake Cristine Fire, drought, and exhaustion. Sitting here in late December, I can say it feels like a blur, but at the time each step was deliberate and dramatic—installing fence, turning over fresh soil, designing/installing an irrigation system, pulling in electricity, building a greenhouse, and growing loads of food- all challenging, rewarding, and exciting. We are proud of what we accomplished this year, and grateful that we have folks who choose to support us and prioritize buying local. You all inspire us to keep getting better at what we do and to grow the right way even when it's not the easiest or cheapest. We would like the wish you the happiest of New Years! From our vantage point, 2019 is shaping up to be one of the best years yet! #happynewyear
