I've been doing a lot of healing of past traumas lately. Reflecting on parts of my past that have left deep wounds and doing my best to come to terms with them.
It's really not easy or gentle work. But today, the setting got to be in a field of peonies we were harvesting and I had the privilege of taking their beauty home with me. How sweet it is to fall asleep with them on my bedside table and be reminded of the beauty in hard growth.
Name a better spring combo than @riverhillfarmers rhubarb and @jsmorganics strawberries… go ahead, we’ll wait.
Cozy up your kitchen by baking a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie or simmering up the best jam ever on your stovetop. 🔥😋
We work directly with dozens of small farms to fill our shelves with the freshest food possible. Sure, it’s more work than ordering from a distributor, but relationships like these are what make a resilient regional food system possible. 🌱💚🌱 #lovelocal
How fun Sarah Smale (@sarahleolyn ) and I get to be on the front of @theunionnews today talking #nevadacountycannabis !! But Sarah and I both know we would NOT be here if it wasn’t for the hard work of Diana Gamzon (@gamzooon ) and the entire Nevada County Cannabis Alliance ( @nevadacountyalliance ) team, who did 💯% of the heavy lifting on our cultivation ordinance, which will hopefully be enacted next Tuesday as an urgency ordinance. So please send them a shoutout today. They worked hard for it! Deep gratitude for your work Diana and Maggie!! Okay #nevadacounty, we did it. Now let’s do some business! 🌱🌱🌱 #sameteam

PASTURE - RAISED! Yesterday we moved a couple groups of pigs into new pastures. This is our definition of pasture-raised; green grass to eat, a sloppy muddy pit to roll around in, and room to roam as they please! 🐽 @slowdownfarmstead shared a GREAT post this morning about labeling, I highly recommend you go read it! It inspired me! So here’s the deal, there are MANY different types of “pasture-raised” operations and definitions, and I’ll be quite honest, some of them would appall you (and not in a positive way) and most of them would warm your heart to know that the animals live in such a wonderful environment! My main point here is do your research, just because it has a certain label doesn’t necessarily mean it’s what you are particularly imagining. And more important than ANYTHING #knowyourfarmer that is what will make all the difference. Know exactly where and how your food is raised, connect with your community to create relationships that make what’s on your plate more than just food. #pastureraised #pig #pork #localfood #nevadacountygrown #farmtotable #farmtofork #smallfamilyfarm #amranch #ag #agriculture #regenerativeagriculture #knowyourrancher #amranch
