A quick update to confirm the end of our “regular farmstand” season, and more importantly, addressing a few important events here.
We deeply appreciate the sacrifices of soldiers who fought for our freedoms, particularly to protect our Constitution, the right to express and attempt to live our ideals as one nation.
We stand with Black Lives Matter protesters now on the front lines of our nation, fighting for all our freedoms. If some of us are not free, none of us are free. Enough is enough.
We celebrate Pride Month and acknowledge that it is primarily a form of protest because you shouldn’t need a month if it’s who you are. Be who you are. Love is love.
And our advice to graduates, and to everyone fighting a war at the moment: Eat healthy, read books, and get your rest. We need you. We are in, hopefully, and together, a difficult and heavy luteal phase prior to explosive growth of something new.
If you’ve been down to the South Shore recently you know that everything is going into a drought state. We have officially ended our pre-reserved social distancing distributions of the last two months, and are on summer hours: that means we’ll only be open on a pop-up basis if and when we have enough produce to distribute.
Personally and for any farm business we will continue to practice social distancing, in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
We are working on some gardening articles to help you all with your DIY farming projects at home!
We love our customers, we miss chatting with you, and we’re proud of everyone in the Virgin Islands working together to flatten the COVID-19 curve. Special thanks to our healthcare and essential workers who are STILL on the job to keep everyone healthy and safe and fed.
It’s not over yet. Stay the course. Soldier on. Protect the most vulnerable. Be the change. We got this!
