Sowing the first seeds of the season is always a little nerve-racking, especially when it's snowing outside 😬
Sowing seeds is an act of faith. We can't control what these seeds do. We can't make them sprout. We can't make them grow. And the success of our farm depends on them.
All we can really do is try our best to create an optimal environment for them, be patient, and have faith that it's all going to work out in the end 😇
Why India's Farm System Is Failing
We stand with farmers and farm workers across the globe. This is a story we came across that we thought was worth sharing. It highlights a trap that many farmers, abroad and at home, have fallen prey to. Giant chemical companies like Monsanto and Syngenta convince hard-working farmers into adopting their mechanized, chemical-based, and genetically modified seed farming systems that they say will boost yields and lower labour costs.
This style of farming combined with poorly planned government subsidies ends up trapping farmers on a technological treadmill that’s akin to modern slavery.
The more we support sustainable, local agriculture the easier it will be for farmers who have been trapped by these systems to transition out of them.
Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! 🍪
Our community spoke and we listened! We asked our community what type of cookie you would like us to make next.
Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies was one of the most requested flavours. After a few test batches were finally able to make a what we think is an exceptional cookie. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
These cookies are much larger than our typical mini cookies. There are 12 large cookies in a jar instead of 24 mini cookies. We found that the larger cookies were softer and chewier than the mini ones. We hope you enjoy them!
Country Blonde Loaf 🍞
Our Country Blonde loaf is made with an ancient and unique grain called Khorasan or Kamut. This grain has been revived in recent years by dedicated grain farmers. It is an unusually large grain. When milled it has a unique yellow color and a sweet, nutty and buttery flavour.
