I can’t believe that we’re picking the last of this year’s Bartlett pears, and that today is our last regular Farmer’s Market day. This season went by so fast — I didn’t even get around to posting a single pear recipe on the blog (Or anything, really, for that matter… will have to do something about that soon….)
But, speaking of the end of the season — this weekend is our annual Harvest Party, a get-together that started out small, years ago, and has grown bit by bit into a beloved Ranch tradition. We gather up friends old and new, good food, home brews, the last of the season’s produce, some friendly chickens….. everything you need for a good old-fashioned hoedown!
It’ll be this Sunday afternoon; just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like directions and details! I’m sending this out to you, our blog followers, because you’ve become a part of our community here — I’m still amazed that we can do what we’re doing, and that people from near and far are so supportive and appreciative. Organic farming isn’t easy, small-scale farming isn’t easy, as many of you know firsthand — but our friends, customers, and community make it all possible. Our sincere thanks to each and every one of you, near and far.
