Native Offerings Farm I hope everyone is safe, warm and well fed. We have had only a couple of inches of snow here. I had no idea how bad the storm was until I looked at the pictures.

There is no Amherst distribution today. We might change the day to Friday. We will keep you posted. The storm might move south and pound us. It is sunny and five degrees at the farm today. The pipes in the greenhouse froze and our rented tractor trailer refer truck broke down last night. Had I not checked we would have lost all of the winter greens and a few thousand pounds of carrots and parsnips. They are now safe in the barns. Enjoy your day.

Sharon Robinson Happy day- you saved the greens!
