September has always been my favorite month in Oregon. We begin harvesting our winter pears and all 70+ varieties of our apples. We are still picking peaches for days but we coming into more pluots and plums. We press fresh cider and start baking pies. The farm smells absolutely amazing and the fall colors are starting to pop up all over in every direction. The air is crisp in the morning and warm in the afternoons. Its perfect time for apple picking and apple sauce making. So I personally invite you all up to the farm for a farm day.
Visiting our farm stand gives people the chance to experience the big picture of our small family farm and see the variety of plants we tend and the wild forest setting important to our bees and honey production. I like building long-term relationships with customers, and the more relaxed situation gives everybody time to connect when you come and
Farming is about thriving. When the soil thrives, my family and my community thrive. My hope is that the lives after ours will thrive. It's simple, but, to quote Wendell Berry, "This is no paradisal dream. Its hardship is its possibility."
