2013 is going to be a busy, hardworking, exciting year! This year marks our 10th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe how fast time has gone by. To celebrate this milestone we decided to do something big. We have planned a spring trip to London and couldn’t be more excited about it. More about that later...
In other exciting news, 2013 marks the start of our new business adventure. Tim and I have started a small farm business named Chateau LaBeaume Farms, LLC (website coming soon). We are leasing one acre of land from EarthDance and plan to organically grow popcorn, peanuts, parsnips, peppers, pumpkins, luffas, and artichokes. Our hope is to sell as much as we can wholesale, but if we have anything left we may be at a few fall markets. This is a very exciting time for us. After being a part of the EarthDance apprenticeship program for 2 years, learning, reading, and watching, it’s now time to start doing. Time to put what we’ve learned to practice.
I say it often, but there really is something to getting your hands dirty. Watching your food grow from a tiny seed, to a beautiful plant, to harvesting it for yourself and others to enjoy. For us, it’s important to know where our food comes from. We appreciate the skill and hard work that farmers endure each year. Now, it’s our turn to do our part and be good stewards to the land. We will follow organic principles and grow food free of chemicals and will not have anything that is genetically modified.
There is so much to do before the growing season officially begins. Join us, as we set forth on this farming adventure. It’s sure to be an exciting ride.
