A Community of Families & Farmers Comes Together

Last weekend something magical happened here in Vermont.

A community of families and farmers came together to acknowledge what they had all created over the past seven years.

They came together over a beautiful dinner, lively music and rich conversation to get to know each other better. And we certainly did!

To all of you who made it to our First Annual Equinox Celebration – I know I do not need to say anything. And to all of you who considered it – we missed you. And to everyone – put it on your calendar for next year and be prepared to be embraced by the amazing community we have all created together.

Equinox Celebration 2017 – September 22-24th

Finally – Come and meet your farmers in person and celebrate what we have all done together!  Break bread, hear stories, visit your farms, celebrate the change of seasons.

After seven years we have built our own regional food system – and farmers, families and Farmers To You Staff all deserve praise and gratitude for the commitment, work, and creativity it took.  Come celebrate with us here in Vermont.  The leaves are turning, the air is crisp and invigorating, we’re cooking up some amazing food (of course!), planning some spectacular farm visits, and so looking forward to seeing your family here where it all begins.

At The Crossroads

As a valued Farmers To You partner, please take a moment to read this important letter.

I’m writing on behalf of the 83 small-scale farmers who have devoted their lives to growing healthy, delicious food that sustains your family, the local economy, and the planet.

I’m writing for the passionate Farmers To You team, people who are committed beyond description to running our operation. Imagine, we have never missed a delivery in 6 years – 134,152 orders to date. Incredible!

I am also writing on behalf of many of you, the families we feed weekly who have supported us since the beginning.

Time To Become an Activist!

This past weekend something very beautiful and inspiring happened. Many of you stood up, took action, spoke out, and marched to express what you wanted to see in particular for women’s rights, dignity and honor. This is how the change you want is made manifest. It is time for us to become activists in all parts of our lives.

Our governments, our schools, our health care, our food system, our arts and entertainment, and our media are controlled and directed by interests that do not share our values and priorities; and our families, our children and the planet are suffering daily as a result.

Blessing of the Solstice

Winter at Bean Farm800x400

The Solstice is a time of deep contemplation, intention and responsibility for setting the course of the coming new yearly cycle. It is a period of deep stillness in the natural world – birds stop singing, plants stop growing, our own bodies turn inwards more to introspection than physical activity.

The Solstice and the days that extend to January 7th are considered the most powerful days of stillness and receptivity in the year. An opening to our influence and wishes.

I wish to share a picture that was given to me in pieces over many years that I am now just beginning to see more fully and I will try my best to honor it.
