One well-known aspect of farming is its relative disconnect from society. A farmer may have a vibrant network of family and friends at home, yet still spend most of her daylight hours cut off from the world at large. This makes for a pretty surreal existence when somet...

Plastic has its share of haters these days. From metal straws to wooden toothbrushes, consumers everywhere are eager to reduce their reliance on plastic. Though Dan and I don’t think of ourselves as haters, it is a fact that we only offer recycled boxes at the farm sta...
