First and foremost, we know our farmers by name. Their names are Peggy and Mark. We are able to hug the amazing people that grow our food as we pick up our baskets bi-weekly. That in itself is so great. It shouldn't be a rarity in today's world, but it is. Not long ago, this was a common occurrence. We as a culture have lost sight of our roots, and we are hoping to change that.
When we arrive at the farm, we return our previous baskets and sign in to let them know we have received our share. It is so simple.
When we pick up our baskets, we are able to see exactly where our food is grown, stroll through the field, as well as cut fresh herbs and flowers. It is so beautiful and peaceful at Madison Creek Farms. Each time we visit, we return feeling replenished and full from connecting with the place that nourishes our bodies.
The most nutrient dense food you can eat either comes right from your own back yard, or comes from your local farmer. You can literally taste the difference in farm fresh produce cut that morning and grocery store bought. It is so power packed and flavorful! I yearn for Peggy and Mark's produce during the winter months as I eat what I have frozen or canned.
We as a species have become so disconnected. We are disconnected from our farmers, from our neighbors, even from the people we call friends.
It's time to wake up and change that.
If you have never had a crop share, we encourage you to try it out! There is no better way to eat in season, support your local organic farms, and get back to your roots.
