GREETINGS! WHERE HAVE WE GONE?
After four years as a locally supported small-scale farm in Abbotsford, offering high quality, local organic produce to our community, we find ourselves in a year of transition. Unable to renew the lease on our previous farm location, we are in search of the perfect parcel to re-establish our community supported farm.
Although we are not offering a CSA this year, Farmer Chris will still be visiting the Abbotsford Farmer’s Market on the occasional Saturday, 9-1pm with produce that he is growing this year.
In addition, Farmer Chris is immensely enjoying working with families to establish their own backyard vegetable gardens. Are you interested in having Chris help you and your family learn and grow vegetables this year? Send us an email with your interest/needs: firstname.lastname@example.org
OUR FARM NAME:
In naming our farm “One Love” we aim to acknowledge the universal and positive life force of love that can be found in one’s respectful connection with nature. We believe that we, all living things: plants, animals and humans, are all connected.
It is when we are working at our farm that we feel this connection the strongest: when we observe a family of grasshoppers swaying in the breeze and looking down on us from our highest dahlia, the hunt of a hawk watched several feet away, a visit from an owl who perches at the top of our greenhouse while we are inside of it, or the crescent moon that softly sheds light during an evening picking of vegetables.
Make sure to come by and visit us at the Abbotsford Farmer’s Market to see what we are doing at the farm and to share in the love.
Farm Stand Hours are unavailable for 2015.
