Autumn at Fields Without Fences

A little slow over here, always delivering seasons a season late.  Here are a few scenes from fall.  This year was a period of significant growth at the farm, plant growth that is.  Looking forward to growing our business in 2015.  If you plant it, they will come... I think a wise bird said that.

Many hands make light work

This past season we had the pleasure and privilege of working with two exceptional individuals that we will not soon forget.  James and Katie came to us with genuine curiosity, and a deep desire to cultivate a closer connection to the landscape.  Hired on as part-time farm apprentices, and full-time farm residents, they spent May through September working alongside us, and eventually independently from us.  In perfect time lapse succession we watched the subtle shift in seasons mirror a subtle, though cumulatively transformational shift in understanding.
