I have the best friends in the whole world. Seriously, I do. One of my wonderful Brooklyn friends surprised me today at the farm. I was corralling people onto the wagon for the two o’clock tour and there she was! I had no idea she was coming. It was so great to see her and to catch up for a bit.
My parents also brought up a dear family friend who has been a loyal blog reader from day one. I was so glad she came and now will have a better idea what I’m talking about when she reads all of my crazy stories. (Mrs. Northwood, I am sorry to report that everything went smoothly moving the cows. No “fun” stories today! But I’m sure I’ll have one for you soon.)
We also have the best customers. Lauren and I were freezing at the market this morning. I am an expert layer-er and had on plenty, but it was still cold. It doesn’t help that all of the meat has to be kept buried in ice. People would come by to see what we were selling and would pull everything out of the ice. Then they’d leave and we had to stuff it all back. Our fingers ceased functioning after a bit. Will came to our rescue! He is one of our favorite customers and conveniently lives just a few blocks away from the market. We had some apple cider from Frecon Farms which he took back to his house to heat up for us. How awesome is that?
Anyways, I just wanted to let you all know that you are loved and appreciated. Friends have traveled far and wide to visit me this summer (David wins the award for traveling farthest with Kristen as a close second) and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Your support throughout this adventure means the world to me and I certainly wouldn’t have made it this far without you. So thanks!
