As 2019 begins, I've been sifting though some of the photographs we took last year. It's been fun to remember the visits we have had, and the things we have accomplished! 2018 was the second season on our farm, and we took on the huge project of building (or, rather... having someone build for us) a pack shed that we will be able to use year round- in other words, it's insulated, so we can increase our storage crop and winter CSA capacity. We also had our first harvest party this fall, where friends and CSA members came out to the farm to take a look. It was loads of fun, and we had a neighbor come by with his mobile pizza oven and serve up some tasty pizzas! We doubled our growing area, and increased the number of CSA shares we offered, which was a big deal for us, as it is a step towards financial sustainability for us. As we learn what works and what doesn't for our size and scale, we will be able to feed even more people from our small plot of land. We've had all manner of visitors out at the farm, family, friends, and folks that we had never met before that were looking for community in other queer farmers. Here are some of the gems hidden deep in my photo reel- I hope you enjoy the glimpse into our year, and perhaps it'll inspire you to come out for a visit!
Photos from our fall harvest party- the rain held off, and the hot tea, friendship, and fires kept us warm.
