    Every year we at Farmers To You get amazing holiday and new year cards from you, our families. Some might think this a rather mundane effort, but to receive these cards makes my heart swell with pride and joy. I feel this especially in reading the messages from our founding families.

We may not live in the same community, but there is something about feeding people that has always inspired and nourished me.

    This has been a very trying year, and what I always notice when I look back on trying times is that there were also beautiful gifts revealed.

    You have all given me a very special one this year: community. Not the sound-bite, social media-amplified, paper thin kind of community. Rather, the kind that looks out for you, brings you food, makes sure you are okay. The kind you can lean on and that makes you feel whole.

  • The Healing Beauty of Nature

    Up here in Vermont, this season of winter has the potential to be something wondrous or something to endure.
