You know when you say something half-kidding and then after some thought decide it’s not a bad idea... Yeah. That happened today. It’s cold outside and we had some wood to get rid of after cleaning up. #perfectsolution#babyitscold#tfigrows#bonfire
Not only did the sun come out today, but we also had some extra hands helping around the farm. New chickens are tagged, new animal pasture fenced up and housing the baby goats, cover crop seeds in an old pasture needing some rest, and garlic in the ground. 💪🏻👊🏻Thanks guys! .
The past few days I've been thinking about this year compared to last and wondering what next year will be like as we are thinking ahead for goal setting and grant writing. Overall, this has been a good year. I'm thankful for the support we get from friends and family, our Board of Directors, Nora, our Farm hand, our CSA customers, Summer Youth Program alumni and their families, sponsors, volunteers, market goers, and strangers who believe we are doing something good and right in our community. I'm thankful that after a blow to our fall crops in August (Thanks Harvey rain) that we were able to keep our heads up and press forward to be able to provide our customers with a beautiful, healthy box of food this week! #tfigrows#thankful
Our last #communitydigday of the season is this Saturday, Nov. 4th. We'd love for you to join us in planting garlic for the upcoming year. We'll have other projects going on too. There's room for everyone! 🍁SIGN UP with the link in profile. .

What a fun time we had with the students from Little Scholars Montessori School this morning! They took a tour of the farm learning about energy, the animals, "five-sisters" planting, made a craft and took a hike on our new nature trail. Thanks for coming out, friends! Come see us again. #tfigrows#tfikids#fieldtrip
We had no idea! Glad we checked our IG account tonight.

🎤 Introducing the newest member of the TFI family, Conan. 🎤He and our Momma goats will spend the winter getting well acquainted. Our hopes are that we'll have more kids in the spring. (Goat- kids! N O T- Hampton kids!!😁)
We've been quiet on Social media for a little bit, but that doesn't mean there hasn't been anything going on. We're still working hard on and off the farm.
Stay posted for new updates and events going on at the farm!
We had some help giving our old beehives a makeover on Saturday at our #commUNITYdigday . 👩🏻🎨👨🏽🎨The younger kids each took a side of a bee box and went to town adding color to the new homes. .
We'll be ready for you bees!
