Visiting Farmers

By Stowel Lake Farm

We had the pleasure to visit beautiful Foxglove Farm yesterday and have a fabulous tour by Michael Ableman. It is always inspiring to visit another farm and see what is going on. In this case A LOT is going on and we laughed about whether it was inspiring or overwhelming. I think the consensus was inspiring and we took away many little tips from Michael. He shared with us his tried and true varieties, his irrigation tricks, his failures and successes and he let our 4 children in tow run free in the raspberry patch!!  But last but not least he shared time with us and we deeply value spending time with someone so connected to the land and growing the best food possible.
