A brief statement on the 4th of July. We are so grateful to be free. To get up and choose how to spend our seconds, our moments, our thoughts, our fears, our hearts, our energy. We are so grateful to have strong roofs, full bellies, soft beds. We are so damn grateful to have the resources to steward this land of towering pines, clean water, abundant wildlife. To have the resources to care for all the living things we share our life with with the respect, kindness, and compassion they deserve. We wish this for all people, everywhere. And on that patriotic note, America’s birthday may not pass without thinking of voting. And I just want to pause and say a heartfelt Thank You for voting with your dollars to support small, local, sustainable agriculture and specifically, this small, scrappy, dream-filled and heart-breaking endeavor of ours so we can keep on doing it. Every dollar you spend purchasing from us, from our local farmer friends, at the coop, at the farmers market is a vote that says you prioritize clean food, resilient local economies and ecosystems, fair wages for skilled labor, less packaging, less burning of fossil fuels, healthier people, plants, and animals, air and water. THANK YOU, for there is no farm or farmer without eaters.
