Fruit trees are blooming, the grass is green, and everything feels alive with new growth!
What’s new on the farm?
During the winter we renewed our commitment as a group to make time in our daily rhythm for what we value most.
What our days look like:
Rise and share our dreams,
take a jog on our perimeter trail,
and have breakfast.
Work together on projects around the farm, enjoying the process and each other’s company as much as possible.
Come together at sundown for a gratitude meditation and dinner,
singing or reading aloud/philosophy discussion,
With the rapidly-approaching warm spring, our season for vegetable planting has begun! We’re eating greens out of the greenhouse and have onion and brassica starts going. Here’s the pigs and our dude crew working up the first beds for roots and greens out in the field. And a sweet pic of our surprise batch of piglets! (We sold our boar in January, not realizing he had sired another batch of babies.)
Spring is also the beginning of our farm intern season and so far has brought us a wonderful new apprentice, Joseph. He’s been reading and discussing Richard Bach’s book Illusions with us, which inspired this interview:
“Victims of Circumstance or Co-creators of Every Situation: Which View Serves Better?”

(A hummingbird arrived shortly after this video was made and hovered around us and the blueberries, sipped nectar, and perched on the branches next to us – Magic!)
