July 2019, Week 2
This summer, find your farm family. Starting July 13, we're debuting our first Summer on the Farm. This small-group experience is designed for adults and kids ages 12 and up. Together we'll spend time alongside the farmers who cultivate and appreciate the land. We'll discuss the farm and its history, the art and literature of farming, and the farm's place in civilization. We'll explore working the fields, engaging our senses and our curiosity as we learn together. We'll build in plenty of time for conversation and reflection, creating space for the experience to inform your life in the way that feels right to you. More than just a summer camp for an older crowd, Summer on the Farm invites you into a world you might have wondered about, but not had access to investigate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Summer on the Farm is for you. For all of you. For any of you. We meet you where you are, and help you find where you're going.

Rare Bird Preserves
We are so excited to introduce a new company in our market: Rare Bird Preserves. If you haven't tried a curd preserve before, you're in for a treat! Curd Preserve differs from all other types of preserves as it contains eggs and butter, very similar in texture as custard. Curd preserve is a thick, creamy spread that is made by cooking together fruit juice – usually a citrus fruit, egg yolks, butter and sugar. Rare Bird Preserves craft their products the traditional way: in copper pots with natural ingredients. While their approach is traditional, their ﬂavors are anything but. Blending seasonal fruits with herbs, chocolates, and other exceptional ingredients, they produce deliciously unique spreads.
We'll see you next week!
