Greetings everyone, Erika here! The majority of you receive a CSA box from us and I believe it’s important to bridge the uncover the mystery of who or how these boxes are created.
Without a harvest, there would be nothing in your boxes. Here we are in our beloved barn field cutting salad.
Here is one of the stations for packing the box. Potatoes are weighed by yours’ truly!
This is where the boxes begin to take physical form! They are sprayed, constructed and papered before they are filled with lush vegetables.
Every week myself and one other apprentice creates these boxes for y’all. For the next month, Lily will be helping me. This means your boxes are packaged with songs and laughter.
Lastly, here is the final product (minus the green onions). I’m always joking that configuring the placement of vegetables is like being a CSA interior designer. There are many forms and “rough draft” boxes before we find ourselves content.
Thank you for reading and I hope this provides some insight to our life here on the farm.
Blessings and love,
Erika is a young woman who was born and raised in Oregon. With the desire to touch the Earth with care, she has found herself farming.
