17th May 2021 - A sunny May full of flowers

Blossoms

Yowza, it's already mid-May! With all the lovely warm and dry weather we've been having, we'll be eating blueberries before too long! The lack of rainfall is a real bummer for the farm though - we're worried about running out of water in our irrigation pond and are grateful to our resident beavers for their help in storing additional water. Ecological farming means learning to embrace animals like the beaver - it's not always easy (flooded fields anyone?) but the mindset shift has many benefits...

10th March 2021 - Spring beef shares!

Looking out at the beautiful sunny day we are having makes me feel a little like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.....the gloomy days of winter are almost over! With COVID restrictions still in effect and not likely to to lift soon, I am looking forward to the nice weather so we can finally have friends over to visit, while we BBQ, outside, in a safe socially distanced atmosphere.

22nd January 2021 - Beef Share Updates

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy as we enter this new year!

2020 was quite the roller coaster, and while it appears the ride is far from over, hopefully with the information learned about the virus in the last year and the release of the COVID vaccine, the pandemic situation will slowly start improving. While we experienced many negatives last year, one positive thing for us was meeting and providing beef to many new families in the Pacific Northwest when stores were facing supply challenges. Having a food shortage is never good……. but in always being optimistic and looking for the positives in any situation, we are seeing that those shortages have encouraged people to turn to their local family farms, neighbors, and friends in their search for more dependable food sources and have seemingly helped to rebuild a sense of community that has been slowly disappearing.
