The last vegetables of the year…for 12.19.2015

Join us Saturday at the Farmers Market at St. Stephens for our final day of selling vegetables in 2015! We’ll be there from 9-12.

Market Share CSA members: Saturday is the last day to pick up orders this year. Place your order now for pick up at one of three locations on Saturday.

The Farm Stand stays stocked and open today and tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. We will post on our website Saturday afternoon if anything remains available after the farmers’ market. If so, we will put it in the farmstand for purchasing Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

CSA sign up is open for 2016! Sign up yourself, your family, a friend, a loved one…We think life is better when eating our vegetables. We hope you will join us.

The cold of winter is approaching, after a balmy December. The darkest day of the year is Monday. After that, our earth gradually starts tilting back toward the sun that gives all of these vegetables light. Though it is a mental trick each year that the days get colder as they get longer, we are ready for both.

We aim to take the opportunity during this time of year to reflect on our fortunate life, spend precious time with family, soak up the gentle light, and bask in gratitude for all that surrounds us. We wish you and yours peace this season and going into the next.

We offer a prayer as we near the end of 2015 –

Prayer from the Wholeness
Relax into the embrace of the Wholeness,
Remembering the sacred whisper in our hearts.
Celebrate the perfect dance of our gentle universe,
Cherishing the true magic of our sweet existence.
Allow the music of our yesterdays to inspire our souls to heal,
And the river to caress our humanness
Let the breezes to spark our brilliant internal light.
Linger in the love that always permeates all.
