We hope everyone has plans for grilling out in Celebration of Independence Day this week! This week, while we’re grilling out, we hope you’ll join us in taking a few minutes of a silent prayer (or meditation) in gratitude for everyone who has served our country in one fashion or another. Especially those who have served in the military, those of you who are constantly writing their representatives to protect our rights and the environment, those who have conducted civil disobedience in protection of human rights and all y’all who vote and work at educating others about the importance of voting. As they say, “It takes a village”, but it takes a country in the USA to keep our independence, and we have learned isn’t always easy!
This Independence Day we are especially thankful that we were able to purchase a farm, grow vegetables and raise meat for ya’ll. We recall last year when we had guests staying with us from China who explained to us that they weren’t permitted to buy a farm. Their government decided whom would be farmers, not, rather than an individual themselves deciding to pursue a farming career. Thinking about the aspect of “independence” in us being able to choose our careers, makes it especially important that all of us continue to do our part for our country in keeping our independence.
For those placing weekly orders with us, while our Farmer Choice shares are priced at $20 a share, please know that we have a minimum order of amount of $15, and you may custom order individual items rather than order the Farmer’s Choice Share. We understand that y’all may be harvesting many of the same things in the Farmer’s Choice share OR the share has too many veggies for most households.
You will probably need to white list our email to receive correspondence from us because we have changed our email from farmer@MountainHarvestOrganic.com to farmer@MountainHarvestOrganics.com (our email is organics plural).
Your Farmers (and cleaning staff),
Carl and Julie
