Farmers To You Blog: A Farmer's Perspective

  • Agrarian Sensibilities

    by Greg Georgaklis

    In 1990 Wendell Berry wrote a powerful essay called The Pleasures of Eating. This essay captured my attention and throughout the years I have read it again, and again. Rereading it thirty years later, I have found the message to be as relevant as ever and particularly apropos of Farmers To You and our mission and relationships. If you haven’t read anything by Wendell Berry, I humbly recommend that you read something as soon as you can get your hands on it!

    August 7, 2020

    I take great solace in having a deep relationship with my food, the land and people who produce it — now more than ever with the uncertainty many of us are experiencing.  It is this connection that keeps me grounded in a completely literal way.

    When this pandemic began a number of months ago, I remember asking – why this?  Why now? Why us?  What is this teaching us and how do we not forget the lessons when the crisis subsides, or perhaps becomes more the norm? 

    Earlier this week as I was journaling, I began jotting down some of the lessons I have learned, relearned, or taken in on a much deeper level as a result of the virus that has been infecting our lives.

    It is hard for me to grasp the concept of a picky eater. This is not because I believe that people shouldn’t be discerning about their food choices. Rather, I struggle with the idea of a picky eater because for me trying new foods, tasting different flavors and textures, and smelling unfamiliar aromas emanating from the kitchen, is one of the many joys of life.

  • The Legacy of George Washington Carver

    by Greg Georgaklis
    July 24, 2020

    When I was not quite ten years old, I received a book that deeply influenced me: A Weed Is A Flower: The Life of George Washington Carver, written and illustrated by Aliki. There was so much that I gathered from that picture book, about a curious, humble scientist and inventor with outstanding strength of character. In his lifetime (1860-1943), George Washington Carver experienced the tremendous challenges of slavery, poverty and the loss of his parents. Still, he became an inspiring and successful individual who advanced the lives of many.

    Are some of you wondering why Farmers To You has so many delicious egg options this time of year? It is because even eggs have a season. That’s right – egg production is sun-sensitive!  No wonder that the yolks are like mini suns and they radiate orange-gold on your plate.
