Days are slowly getting longer. Between 5th and 7th of January, the energy starts to wake up the soil and the ecosystem. The last few days I have been thinking about the orchard organisation and the veggies for the season about to begin.
Deciding the varieties and amounts we have to seed has never been something easy. From one side, in farming, you never know what will happen to the produce. There is some factors that can affect the harvest. We have the weather ( temperatures, rains, ice storms…) and we also have plagues (specially in organic farming where we do not use any chemicals); One year a variety will work really well while the following one will be better for a different one. In addition to that, the last two years I found out that even commercialisation is really difficult, specially when there is intermediaries that do not value the farmers work, as I already spoke about in my blog post “hard beginnings in the farm“.
First of all I would like to thank everyone who trusted our products and bought our veggies last season. Either in our pickup points or in the market. Since we started with all your deliveries we didn’t sell anymore to shops. Therefore our veggies arrived freshly harvested and with all its essence direct to your kitchens, we can’t be happier! I feel so thankful to all of you after all the disappointments suffered during the commercialisation process.
Therefore I decided to focus on all of you this coming season. We will plant thinking about being able to serve all of you. Last season, the boxes were so successful that we couldn’t serve all the products you were ordering (we had not planted enough) so we ended up sharing between all the packages.
Those who know me in person or those who have been following me for a while, you know that I can’t stop coming up with new things, I love it! So This year we are coming back with some cool news!
The first one, and trying to avoid not being able to serve all your orders, I decided to share with you “a bit of my orchard”.
Some might be wondering what is that about… Stay tuned, I will share all the information within this week!
