Are you going to be at Horsefeathers tomorrow? Do you by any chance sell some of your fermented veggies or is that only for the share? I have to go on antibiotics and would love some!

It was so cold at the farm today that the thermometer bottomed out at -25F. I am glad that we do not have distributions scheduled for this week. It is a good time for a vacation. We will return for the last winter distribution in March.

We will be having our only February distributions this week.

Lauren Bee Sorry to be redundant, so there arent any share pickups this week? Are we done for the season? I wasn't there last pick up so I didnt get to find out or talk to anyone.

Native Offerings Farm There is not a share this week which worked out well because we would have ended up delivering frozen vegetables.

Thanks for the fantastic kim chi this season! We had kim chi noodle soup with egg tonight, and it nourished my very soul! We crave it when the weather gets cold. Wonderful stuff!

This is a true story. A customer approaches the "farmer" at the farmers market and asks if he sprays. The "farmer" responds no which is true since the spraying is not his job. Herbicides, fungicides and pesticides are sprayed on the farm by someone else. We can not advertise that we are organic unless we are certified and there is a reason for this. It is to preserve the integrity of the word ORGANIC.
This is one of the reasons we are in the process of certifying the farm organic. Another is that our previous certifying agent, Certified Naturally Grown, is unknown to almost everyone. What does naturally grown mean anyway? Everything is natural these days it seems. The word has been corrupted. stew

Amy Melton Prentiss Thanks for the education, Stew.
