Hey! It's Angela writing to you all this week. We are very sorry we did not get a newsletter out last time and will try to ensure that we stay consistent with the newsletter being sent out every two weeks. It has been extremely busy here and this heat has been especially taxing on us. As I'm sure many of you are experiencing as well, summer is filled with family activities, graduations, wedding, etc. It is difficult for us to leave the farm with the farm work we have so we are grateful to have Graham Fogwell as a farm partner from Fogwell Family Farm. He is fully trained up and able to temporarily manage our farm chores so that we can take short trips for family events. Brian's sister graduated a few weeks ago in Williamsburg so we were able to go to that. This weekend we spent one quick day at Lake Gaston visiting Brian's family. Next weekend Brian's sister is having a one year birthday party for her son. Normally we would have to decline most all of these invitations as the animals must be tended to on a daily basis. But having Graham here has allowed us to enjoy these events even just for one night out of town. Below is a cute picture of Brian and Willow on a raft at the lake this weekend!

​Hey! It's Angela writing to you all this week as Brian is outside as I write this baking pizzas, bread and flatbread in our new brick oven. We are so excited to have this functional and have been using it frequently and are loving the end result. We are excited to finally be able to share some of this with you as we are going to offer, starting with the delivery on Thursday, FRESH bread and flatbread. We will prep the bread on Tuesday, bake it on Wednesday and send it out fresh with the delivery on Thursday. This is naturally leavened sourdough bread so for those that struggle with Gluten / Celiac issues, we have heard this bread is easier to digest and therefore may work for you.

Howdy there! I hope everyone’s Spring has sprung and y'all are ready for the summertime. We have been running around here so much that we just realized that May is almost over. It’s crazy how fast time flies by when you are having a good time. Things are progressing very nicely here on the farm and we are definitely in the full swing of things. Just two weekends ago we finished the brick oven and this past weekend we were able to fire it up and start baking and trying some new items. All I have to say is that it is freaking awesome!
