Back to school this week and the farm crew has been whittled down to the core group. Our summer crew is full of high school, college and grad school folks balancing out their studies with hard summer work. Two weeks ago we had ten folks in the fields and this week we are down to five. Our full season crew, Tom, Kristin, and Lauren are the professional farmers, starting the year as the last snow falls in April and finishing with the first in November. You have met them here at the farm on CSA pick up days as they take turns overseeing the CSA barn. Last week they enjoyed a few days without Seth on the farm. The goal of the apprenticeship is to give the farmers the tools they need to operate their own farm. By late August Seth is able to step out for a break and all the many parts keep moving without a hitch. We are always so grateful to our smart, hardworking, and dedicated crew. Labor, love, and learning.
