Frozen Strawberries and Frozen Raspberries from Adam’s Berry Farm are 10% off this week. These were frozen at their peak this past summer and are flavorful and sweet. Their fragrance is intoxicating- so much so that it shines through even in their frozen state!

Organic Rye Flour from Maine Grains is $5.95 (normally $6.75)

This stoneground rye flour is low in gluten and high in fiber- try in a homemade pumpernickel loaf, or mix some into your pancakes, cookies or other pastries for an aromatic addition.

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.
