Hello beautiful people. This morning I almost had a skip in my step. The rain. The cooler mornings just does something to my soul. I am so ready for FALL.
Fall means we reopen the farm. We start our Thursday pick ups for all our amazing Farm Member Families - you should SEE what's starting to peak out of the ground and what is already so lovely.
Fall also means we reopen to the community that surrounds us. Side note: we are thinking of HOW we can reintroduce our French Cafe with coffee and breakfast breads. It was so lovely seeing folks enjoy the farm for that morning spot of coffee and conversation. But, like so many places, I am hearing it was taken advantage of. Somehow we have to create the zen so it's enjoyed by all - that means - um - I'll just say it out right - any child needs to be connected to a responsible adult - and to be reminded we are not a park or play ground but a place of business and we want everyone to experience joy and peace and the beauty. We're still working through this.
But - the main purpose of saying 'hello' is to ask ALL current farm members who have been part of our members produce the past TWO seasons - to express your intent by Friday. That intent is whether or not you will be staying a FARM MEMBER for our lovely fall offerings - starting either the end of September or beginning of October. It will be a TEN weeker for $40 per week. That is $400. IF you are intending to come - please email me here - firstname.lastname@example.org AND get a check in the mail this week - for $100 as a non refundable deposit.
There are already 12 of you on the list and we serve ONLY 30 families. If you aren't intending to carry on - there are 15 families waiting on the list to step in.
So email me - put FARM MEMBER in subject line - and pop a $100 check in the mail to hold your spot.
