First Open Farm Day

Kelsey Zaavedra

Tick that off the list! What a day! I’ve been so busy this season that I haven’t had any time for friends to hang out or even check in. Once May 10th came I was at the farm working 14 hour days trying to catch up from the crazy winter that never left. So once I felt I was caught up and had something to look at I opened the farm up to any and everyone.

The day was magic. It was great weather in the morning when I was harvesting veg to offer for visitors but by the time everyone started coming it was very sunny and hot. I enjoyed it but it may have been a bit warm for everyone else. People started coming right at 10:00 and stayed well after the intended close of the day. It was SO wonderful to have all my people come out to the farm and see what I’ve been up to — even taste it too.

I had all the intentions to document this day and share it on the web with you all but it was so busy and full of fun that I wasn’t able to do any of that. Thanks to a friend I have a very short video she took of part of her tour. I asked her to send it to me and here it is:

With so much of the really big pieces of infrastructure under my belt, I cannot tell you how much I’m looking forward to next season. I will be able to hit the ground running and share more with you all. I want to open the farm up to you and your family to visit! My heart was so full at the end of my first farm day. Thank you to all of you who came out and walked the fields, the pollinator habitat and took some Heirloomista goods home with you. Your support makes my business happen. For those of you who haven’t been out, I look forward to seeing you.
