Wanna Volunteer?? Or, farming on a labor shoestring



(Nuance is not an easy word to spell,

Nor easy to convey electronically.

 Humor is easy to spell.

 But just as hard to convey electronically.

 So don’t get me wrong.)


 A “labor shoestring”???


Often we don’t even have shoestrings!


no shoestrings here!

But neither do we consider Tony,

 our right hand man,

 a “shoestring”.

nor You, the many people who pitch in.

 We have consistently farmed with “just” 1.5 full-time people during the growing season. This year that’d be me and Tony. For what we do, how much we do, and how we do it, that is a labor shoestring.


So, You Wanna Volunteer??


We’d be super glad to have You!


these people are amongst the many

that have chipped in

through the many years
