Farmers To You Blog: A Farmer's Perspective

  • Feeding Each Other

    These past couple months our families are eating meals together. Even in Vermont, where the pace of our lives tends to be slower, we are finding more time to nourish our minds and bodies, together.

    If you think about it, farmers are the eternal optimists. We must be. Each year we start from the beginning, with our seeds in the soil, and our harvest depends on forces completely out of our control – like the weather.

    As long as we can remember, the spring is a time of renewal and optimism. After a long winter in New England, the signs of spring raise our spirits. To state the obvious, this spring feels different.
