A Good Year
Today marks our one-year anniversary at Karma Acres Farm, and it’s hard to believe the year has passed so quickly! As I look back on all we have done and all the wonderful people and experiences of the past year, I am overcome with a sense of gratitude. I am so grateful to the farm for all it has given us this first year.
Who knew there would be a blueberry and pear harvest of the magnitude it was during our first year? or that the bees would love the flowers available to them so much they would make honey so good it would cause a friend to declare “it tastes like flowers in a jar!” or that we would be eating home-grown lettuce and strawberries in January?
Who knew we would meet such a wonderful group of people in Callahan and help get a new Callahan Farmer’s Market started there? (And most importantly, who knew we would ride on a 4th of July parade float with Miss Delilah Shepperd, the Market’s miniature pot-bellied pig mascot??) I certainly did not, nor did I know that we would be lucky enough to share all this with each other, nine dogs, and three wee donkeys!
And finally, who knew we would meet all of the wonderful people we have met here (you know who you are!)? I am so grateful to all of you for your interest and support of our farm adventure. I have learned so much from all of you, and appreciate reading your posts and ideas so much. Thank you for being part of our first year at Karma Acres Farm!
