News from the Farm | January 26, 2015

It feels as though there is so much to write about at this moment in time: the blooming almond trees, the 75° weather, winter/spring cooking, and our new farm babies.  We got news yesterday that our neighbors at Pasture 42 welcomed a beautiful little girl into the world.  Delphine Louise joins Arlo Alois Muller (4 months) and Teodoro Rodriguez Ochoa (3 months) in the one and under crowd here in Guinda, CA.  Since our newest little farm boys have not gotten an official Beet welcome, here they are with their ringleader, Rowan.  We are elated to introduce them to you.


 These beautiful babes are not the only thing growing around here.  Our farm kitchen (shown below), which will be host to farm dinners, classes, value added products, events and many other uses is nearing completion.  The paint is on the walls, the stoves have arrived and the landscaping is underway.  The building of this new addition to the farm has taken just under two years, and the planning goes back even further than that.  Needless to say, we are all chomping at the bit to get in there and cook!  We hope that this new space can be a gathering place for our community, both local and extended (including you!)  It also represents the farm’s desire to grow not just in acres of vegetables and babies (although those are good too), but also in new and exciting directions.  In uncertain economic and meteorological times, our strength is in our diversity of activities and talents.  For Amon and me, this building is a dream come true!  We hope to see you at a tour, dinner, or if you happen to be passing through, do stop by and say hello.  We can’t wait to show you around!
