Dear Friends,

I would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to everyone who attended the Strawberry Fling on Sunday. What a splendid day! It was so well attended by such interested and engaged customers and community members. These events and things like it, even the notes I’m writing now, are some of the things I love most about the way BVF conducts business. Though I love the ‘farming’ part of farming; the tractors and the outdoor work and the communing with the powers that be, and though I often envy the simplicity and efficiency of my commodity growing neighbors, I am not certain that I could ever let go of that direct contact with the people we serve. It is so invigorating to engage directly with our customers and share the farm; actually have our customers visit and see what it is we do and how we do it and meet the people doing it. Speaking of the people doing it, wow, did the folks here ever do a great job.

Dear sweet Emily, BVF’s advertising and outreach coordinator was spectacular. Emily handles all our social media and attends events and coordinates with other like minded organizations and individuals. She, on top of an already demanding schedule of motherhood and partnership, pulled off an awesome feast, did all the advertising and printing and purchasing and cooking and serving and clean-up. She enlisted the help of her friends and family and in a humble and graceful manner created an atmosphere that was delightful for all who attended, and allowed me to focus on my role as proud owner and verbose tour guide. Thanks Em.

I have not left much room to go on about this week’s delivery, but… Welcome! And Enjoy! The fields look excellent. We are excited about the CSA this year and looking forward to a great season. These early boxes will showcase greens and other early crops, and will soon include carrots and peas, fennel, broccoli, and so much more. Remember too that we accept customers any time throughout the year and prorate for the deliveries that have been missed. If you enjoy the program let your friends and coworkers know! There is no better way for us to reach more people.

Mike
