Pioneers on this path

It’s really exciting to feel the easier pace as the season comes to an end. It’s staying darker in the morning so we’ve been sleeping in until 6:00 a.m. What a treat! With some wonderful volunteers we’re harvesting our “second to last batch” of broilers. We really  appreciate helping hands, new faces, a variety of stories and interesting conversations during harvest. It sets the pace! Brendon Perry from StoneHouse Farm in Goshen brought his apprentices. When people come with experience it makes a world of difference.

It was a delight to meet Sally Fallon at Polyface this past weekend. I’ve been using her cookbook for 10 years. I started soaking grains, flour, nuts and more as she describes in her cookbook, “Nourishing Traditions” and over time it made a positive impact on my digestion. I’m certain I can eat wheat again after years of being gluten free with the help of fermenting and soaking. Big applause for the  work she does with The Weston Price Foundation. So many pioneers on this path of farming. Saturday it was Sally Fallon and that evening poet, farmer, essayist, and novelist Wendell Berry. I enjoyed the question and answer session after Wendell spoke. Insight and and inspiration comes from so many different people on this path.

John Winters decided to volunteer at Buxton after attending “Field Day” at Polyface. He’s a cook who is starting his own urban garden in Pittsburgh. John has a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for gardening, cooking, music, and comedy! Not to mention he’s been a great help with the daily chores and his prepared a few delicious meals!
