Notes from Your Farmer

“This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy”…George Bernard Shaw.

I am feeling “mighty” this early a.m. We feed 300+ families a week. This team of life players is committed to bring to you REAL food. I am reminded of how amazing this group of people is to work with each day because of their willingness to play hard, every day, toward a cause they so believe in. They face criticism that comes from ignorance. They seek out solutions and when none are forthcoming, they create. They face failure each day and overcome by holding a vision they know is right and true. They are valiant and steadfast. They are leaders in uncharted territory and they choose, daily, not to falter.

It is a pleasure to serve them. As you sit down to your Thanks Giving table this year, raise your glass to this young, strong, unwavering team of leaders. Your table is full of their efforts, hearts and soul.
