Field Notes: Keep On Keeping On
As much as we would like to feel grateful for all this rain, it’s been really tough on us farmers.
If you’ve been reading our weekly newsletters for some time you’re probably familiar with how rainy days really set us back. It’s peak planting season, but with the tractors stuck in the mud and the soil too saturated with water, all we can do is wait to plant out our summer crops.
Many farms up north are completely under water from the floods. On a macro level, these erratic weather patterns will have substantial impacts on the quality and cost of our food. This is why we believe it is so important to bridge the gap between local farms and consumers. A stronger connection within our local food systems helps Build more resilient communities when times get tough! Thank you for your continued support.
