TFI Farm Blog
Whew! It's been a great year. I'm amazed and grateful of all that we've accomplished this year. Our meat operation continues to grow--we've just added a Winter Meat CSA for the first time. The new farm stand is a great addition to our campus, allowing us to have a permanent retail structure here at The FARM. And I really can't say enough about our new walk-in freezer. Hallelujah! No more digging through chest freezers looking for that perfect steak for our customers.
As the days grow shorter, and afternoon chores start at 3 pm, I'm reminded of how quiet The FARM can be. The long, hot, dusty days of summer are filled with the constant chatter of kids on The FARM. The polarity between seasons seems more extreme here on the island for some reason. I retreat to my knitting and crocheting and wonder if it's ever actually going to snow or get cold this year. Sixty degrees in December? I'm not complaining, but it does seem odd.
After a long season of budgeting and planning, and a successful (although still ongoing) Fall Appeal I look forward to the quiet stillness winter in Katama has to offer.
Stay warm and be well!
