Winter is Coming...
As winter approaches we find ourselves winding down and taking stock of our incredible first year. We want to thank everyone who supported us with a special Thanks to my Mother In Law (Tim's mom). She has been the third parent to our children, a babysitter, an investor in both finances and moral support, and our biggest cheerleader. Without her we wouldn't have been able to make this year happen.
We'd also like to thank every single person who showed up at the Farmers Markets to support not only us but our fellow farmers. This life isn't easy and every time you buy from one of us, it is deeply appreciated.
We made some great new friends, met some wonderful new people and hopefully started some relationships that will continue to flourish. Big Shout Outs to The Rockford North End City Market, Barrington Farmers Market, Choices Market in Loves Park and Dukes Ale House in Crystal Lake for their continued support of local food.
WARNING : As a wife I am going into brag mode in 3.. 2.. Go!
Tim has done an amazing job at running this farm virtually single handedly. Our third child was born this summer and I was busy with her, so he threw on his burlap cape and got it done. He worked this land mostly by hand, seeding, planting, weeding, watering, running hoses, harvesting and packing. If every there has been a proud spouse, it is me. Thanks Honey!!
