Our farm is at a paradox during this moment in time. We want everyone who has been committing their food dollars to local food to keep getting access. This means our all-you-can eat farm members who account for 50% of our income, long time customers at @cfmbgky the homeless and food insecure at HOTEL INC the BG City and Allen County Scottsville schools and customers at @boycegeneralstorellc
We’ve been very intentional about building these programs with relational providers who carry the same values as our family because times like this are inevitable.
A particular focus right now are the FRESH RX FOR MOM and SNAP participants @cfmbgky
Want to listen in to Nathan and I sharing our story in co-founding the market, teaching beginning farmers, implementing food access programs, and eventually becoming full-time farmers?
Our episode of Breaking Beans is live and we can be found at the 10 minute mark:
This is a portrait of Michelle Howell, a hardworking farmwife, mother of five, author, and advocate. On the left side of the bust you can read text from the poem “Anyway” that was on a wall of Mother Teresa’s home for children in Calcutta, India. “If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.” “The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.”
