Part of our hive swarmed about a month ago and we were literally 5 minutes away from catching them when they decided to flee. Talk about disappointed!! Last week Michael and Nora opened up our hive to check everything out and didn't find any site of a queen (disappointment again!), so we've ordered a new queen. Our fingers are crossed that she gets here and starts working immediately to save our hive! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฏ

Michael has been more intentional with moving our animals from pasture to pasture this year. The pigs are currently in with the chickens which means we have to go in their pen to get to the chicken coop... which means your feet are going to be attacked by the pigs like they are lunch! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜„

Sometimes when you're harvesting carrots and you have a bunch of tiny ones- you make the sacrifice and eat the ones that don't sell well at the market. Tyler's crew did not argue with that idea. ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿพโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿฅ• ps- We'll be at the #clarksvilledowntownmarket tomorrow. Come see us!

Oh, hey there cabbage, kale and onions! It's nice to actually see you! 
It's crazy muddy today, but the youth have worked hard at pulling weeds to give our plants some room to breath and cleaning out the chicken coop.

Meet Nora, our new farm hand! We are excited to have her join us over the next few months as she finishes her Masters. We look forward to the opportunity to learn from her and hope that her time with TFI will be impactful.

Of course the first day of work on the farm has to include a tour of the farm. Even if it is a muddy, gloomy day for our June crews.

We want to thank Marco, one of our youth alum, for helping us with our CSA harvest this week! 
Even though we typically are more aware that we are older when they are around, it means a lot to us when our alumni come back to help and volunteer!
