Doesn't feel a whole lot like Christmas where we are right now. As I type, my wife is reading in a lounge chair near the pool and I sit under a thatched roof poolside. Not a sign of Christmas anywhere other than large Poinsettias on the patio. Still, it is indeed December 24th and we are thinking of Christmas wishes for our friends and family back home.
There are a few new plans for the farm for 2012. We will have an on-farm store where folks can come and pick up their orders at their convenience. This makes things easier for everyone and will allow us some cost savings instead of making extra trips to deliver smaller orders.
We also have some additional storage bins on the farm this year, that will allow us to control a larger amount of grain products. That means that we will run out of products far less often.
There is still a lot of work to do around the farm and our business but we are devoted to making things work better and more profitably in 2012. Stay tuned and please be sure to visit us at Old Strathcona Farmers Market and Wild Earth Foods. New customers will also be announced in 2012!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you! Thank you for supporting our little farm in 2011.
