This weekend I did some business-y work for the farm. The Farmers Market will be up and running again soon, and I'd like to have new business cards and egg carton labels ready.
While working on this, I got to thinking about K+A over at Little Alexander. They have been some of our biggest cheerleaders and have played an important role in helping the farm get to where it is today.
K+A have been at the farm to help with weeding the garden and unloading our first beef. They've also helped from very far away - encouraging us to start this blog, lots of business support and ideas, and one other BIG plan (more to come on that).
I should also mention that I've been friends with them since elementary school. Farmer John has been friends with A since they went swimming in Lake Superior. A few years later K+A drove all night from Seattle to join us for our wedding on that same shore.
If you haven't done so already, I would encourage you to take a look at the Little Alexander shop on Etsy. They make beautiful notecards, postcards, and notebooks. I have a particular fondness for the rural-themed illustrations. And I have the green one of these full of notes and Belize adventures. Farmer John keeps crop notes in this. They gave us a beautiful gift recently, and we're excited to share it with you soon. In the meantime take a look at their shop.
