When we sell our 42 varieties of garlic at three (four this year) local farmers markets, we tell people they are buying and sharing our happiness at being 'old-new farmers' (at last) growing our community's local organic garlic, happiness at being food and flavor educators, plus our happiness at being our community's true front-line health care providers who are focused on prevention of disease by being stewards of the health of our soil, our food, our neighbors, and our local community.

We are doing our best to live our farm's mission:
"Shaping our future from the ground up"
where the word 'our' is intentionally very large, starting with 'our' common soil all the way up to 'our' community.
Happiness is also having a happy wet dog who does not know she is disturbing the frogs' happy mating haven! :)
