Birthday on the Farm, and for mkts 12/15

One year ago today our youngest farm family member was born! Bear with us, gentle readers, but we can’t resist allowing little Elletta to give you a quick photo tour of the farm today for this week’s blog post. (All photos were taken today – her birthday!)

Here, she examines the salad mix:
