We brought the fall season to a close with a celebration of learning. Together we shared our favorite memories, visited special animals and places, and chatted and enjoyed stories over food and drink, as humans have done for centuries. Farm Sprouts ground corn and churned cream into butter to spread on cornbread muffins, a tasty treat with a sweet apple cider reward after hiking all around the farm on a scavenger hunt. Books like Sleep Tight, Farm by Eugenie Doyle guided us in saying goodbye to the farm. This fall we investigated how plants and animals prepare for winter and we’ve observed so many changes take place, from the leaves falling, birds migrating, to the farmers putting the equipment and fields to bed. It’s been a season filled with incredible joy, new challenges, discovery, big questions, and the maintaining and building of a community around food, our natural resources, and the land. This November, we are ever so grateful to include each of you as a part of our farm community. We wish you a warm and joyous winter season and look forward to reconnecting in 2020!

Thank you to all who have given to this program over the past four years. We wouldn’t be where we are, making the impact we are, without you.
Good night, farm. See you when the sap begins to flow!
