Tomorrow we start a brand new year, and it brings with it many wonderful yet bittersweet changes. I am headed to Ireland to begin my course at the Ballymaloe Cookery School, and I am thrilled beyond words…but leaving a wonderful place like Polyface makes it very bittersweet indeed! I have had a wonderful time writing to you all and reading your comments. I’ll be checking in here at the Hen House as a correspondent from Ireland several times while I am in culinary school, so you can watch for those updates here. If you are interested in following my journey at Ballymaloe, please feel free to follow along at my personal blog.
Miriam Gust will be blogging here at the Hen House on Tuesdays starting after the new year. She was a 2013 intern and is a wonderful addition to the Polyface team. I know she will have lots of great things to share in her posts, so be sure to tune in on Tuesdays!
Wishing you a very meaningful and memorable 2014 – may you all be able to take a few steps further towards your farming dreams, whether that’s a few chickens in the backyard or obtaining one thousand acres. Cheers to a new year!
