We joined many other local food producers in the gym of Three Rivers Waldorf School, host of the event and got to talk to many old and new friends. Dancing Doe Farms donated eggs for the lunch and for a door prize. Please email me or call if you won the door prize!
We have our CHICKEN OR EGGS drawing at 3:45 p.m. as promised. I will post the winner soon.
If you missed the Acadamy Award nominated documentary Food Inc. when it was shown in La Crosse during earth week or on PBS last week, you can view it online through April 29 or rent it through Netflix. I highly recommend this movie. It really makes clear how far our industrial food system has come from the 1950s vision we have of the happy farmer raising fruits, veggies and animals on his little farm.
I believe we will have asparagus to sell soon. It's starting to come up now and, assuming we can keep it picked, I have a limited amount of asparagus for $2/#.
It's definitely tick season. After my trip to the asparagus patch, I found a very very small tick. Now I will be paranoid for several days and feel phantom ticks. Yuk! I don't mind the ticks so much, but I am afraid of getting Lyme Disease.
I will be updating our newsletter soon. Look for that with your egg order next week.
