Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is always a crunch at Terra Firma:  a full week’s harvest and deliveries packed into a half week of short days.  This year the whole endeavor has been made more complicated by absences of key staff members due to family emergencies and injuries.  On the plus side, the weather has decided to cooperate a bit:  although our fields are a muddy mess from the weekend rain, the storm forecast for today never materialized.


It’s been many months since we have shut the farm down for more than one day, and we are looking forward to some quiet time around here.  I hope all of you have a happy holiday with family and friends, whether you’re at home or on the road.  We at Terra Firma thank you all for continuing to support our farm and our families!
