For all the young moms of toddlers it means no more snow pants, more time spent outside and maybe, just maybe a few more minutes of peace and quiet while the kids play outside.
For gardeners, it is sheer delight! New beginnings for your garden and flower beds, therapy sessions talking with your plants and the new hope of the best garden yet!
Spring might mean a deep clean of your house, a time for outdoor plans and projects to begin or just opening up the windows and listening to the birds sing. Whatever spring means to you, I think it’s safe to say that it is very much welcomed after winter.
When spring arrives here at the farm, it means the opening of our farm and market is coming soon! We work all winter but the pace on the farm picks up big time as we prepare the greenhouse, the fields, the equipment for a new season. Grandpa Bob has been roaring around on his ATV (or his “4-wheel youth restorer” as he calls it) checking out the buds on the fruit trees. He is so excited about the potential of the crop this harvest – the old wood, the new wood, he reports it all looks great! This spring we also planted three thousand apple trees to replace the trees damaged by cold winter temperatures in 2016. Check out the video in this newsletter.
The Cannery, Bakery and Café teams are busy too. They have been ordering supplies, hiring staff, making preserves, planning menus and perfecting a few new recipes to add to our “Made Right Here” gourmet foods.
The Gift Shop is coming together with new displays and exciting items for home decor, your garden or a gift for that someone special. I have been busy this winter sneaking in some time to sew some aprons to complement the displays. I love sewing and creating and so glad to find some time to return to this passion of mine.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for subscribing to our newsletter. We will begin our recipe videos again in early May and plan to update you every other week with news from the farm, the family and our market.
This year we are offering you, our special customers a sneak peek of the market and the newly renovated Farmhouse Café. We would like to invite you to a special Open-house the evening before our official opening. On Tuesday, April 30thwe would love to host you with an inside tour, some appies and a chance for our family to welcome you back personally! More details to follow in our next newsletter but please, mark your calendar now and join us if you can!
Happy spring and see you soon!
For the Davison Family
