Farming Experience

Yes indeedy! It's farming season and we have signed up for our fair share of working and then receiving some fresh, organic goodies. Ever heard of Grant Family Farms? (holla to Ty & Anna!). Well these fine people up in Wellington, CO provide organic certified vegetables, fruit, eggs, bread, meat and lots of other goodies to people around Colorado. We have a huge crush on this farm. We are pumped to support a CO family farm, eat healthfully, work for our food, and choose an environmentally sustainable option.

We get 20-22 vegetables per week for 26 weeks. Shazam! This is what their website tells us:

For example, you'll get:
Greens (ie: spinach, lettuce, kale)
Root Crops (ie: beets, carrots, onions, potatoes)
Herbs (ie: basil, parsley, dill)
Classic Vegetables (ie: broccoli, eggplant, tomatoes, green beans, peppers)

Holy shamole! Is that amazing or what? We are super pumped for this. And on May 28th we will be spending from 8am - 5 pm going old school pioneer style to work on the farm. Pictures to come I'm sure...

We had our own garden last year but now being in Lakewood, we aren't going to be able to do that again. But in addition to this Family Farm option, we will be doing "box gardening" on our back porch. You better believe we'll dedicate a few posts to this!

The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us.
Psalm 67:6
