I talk a lot about the animals and the herbs around here, but people are a big part of our farm as well and I learned a long time ago that I can’t do this alone. However, sometimes it’s hard to ask for help and with our animals, especially, we are extremely protective. Running a seasonal business has its perks, but it is also hard to maintain good support and technical expertise between seasons. I want to take a moment to acknowledge the AMAZING support we had during this very unusual season. Thank you for showing up in every way and doing your part to stay safe!
Laurie was our main sheep lady and master milker. She loves animals and knows a lot about sheep. We are so grateful for her animal expertise and attention to detail (and patience with our yearlings!) and we couldn’t have done this season without her! I could go on and on, but this is all just to say—thank you so much!
At the beginning of the season, Aidan signed on to help with farmer’s markets. Then everything stopped. Then we pulled out of farmer’s markets all together. Aidan took on all things herb and was always willing to help with whatever needed to be done, from storing hay to weeding to harvesting to drying herbs. Thank you Aidan for you positivity and reliability!
Things are getting quiet around here, but I know that next spring will come soon enough! Take care everyone and don’t forget to reach out for the support you need in your own life. As we hunker down for winter and continue to fight this virus we will need each other more than ever!
