We're back! Retail pickup at the farm available! Farm sign coming in our front yard soon!
Have you been to NOCO PARK? It's a pop up, urban park in downtown Evansville on 3rd Ave. (NOCO stands for North of Court St.) They host movie nights and different themed events each weekend.

I am excited to be participating in Saturday night's Plant Based Event. We will have a flower bar set up from 5:00-8:00 with all types of flowers from our farm. You can make your own arrangement or we can design one for you. I plan to have some botanical jewelry there, too.

There are several other great vendors participating including Flourish Plant-Based Eatery, Henderson Juice Co., Leaf & Eye, Sixth and Zero, Cheshire Curiosities MicroFarm + Homestead, several artists, and a DJ. Come see us!

Photos of some of our flowers we will have available on Saturday in Noco Park's space by Neeley Photography.
Looks like a fun endeavor, Shannon! I'm weaning myself off fB. Its become too much to nanage, so I must decline. I wish you success.
Small victory in the locally grown food system! Downtown Evansville Indiana's Bargetown Market is now selling hydroponically grown microgreens from Cheshire Curiosities MicroFarm + Homestead.

These nutrient dense greens can be used in salads, sandwiches/wraps, smoothies, & more! 🥬

When you pair already delicious food with microgreens, the flavor goes from 100 to like 200. It is called Flavor Math. Microgreens make everything super magical. 🦄✨

HEY EVERYONE!

Effectively immediately, we are sorry to announce that we have suspended our rewards program for the foreseeable future. To be completely honest, we were so excited for this program but are seeing now that the service is not really user-friendly for us on the backend which caused some serious confusion on how the rewards are earned by our customer.

We have to fess up that by our own misunderstanding this means that rewards were applied on a much larger scale than what was originally intended. Meaning, every order was giving 10% back in rewards versus most standard rewards program's range of 1-3%. We completely apologize for this oversight. It was unnoticed up until this point. We did not intend to misrepresent our rewards program. Being a small farm which is still growing, we keep our product cost reasonably low and our profit margin minimal so you can imagine our shock when we realized what we did! (Awkward.)

THE GOOD NEWS!!! We have already been scouting out other user-friendly services and do plan on redoing the program which will allow referrals. Sharing the love to your friends & family while you benefit from the share as well. We look forward to that in the near future so stay tuned! If you have any questions, please let us know. We are all about transparency in business.

Needless to say, if you have rewards with us for redemption, please know we will do our best to work with you to make amends one-on-one with a fair and worthwhile reward. Without question, we want you to be rewarded for your loyalty! Please contact us below or call Chris at 812-204-4542.

We were having fun at Target yesterday. Maybe too much fun. It is true that maybe we miss farmer's market a bit too much. It is also true that we grow year round so you don't have to wait to see our smiley faces at the farmer's market to enjoy our microgreens!

It doesn’t matter how long you have been homesteading, there is always more to learn. I asked my friends to join in and celebrate the growth of my account by sharing something they have learned along the way! 

When I created this account, I never imagined that it would grow as big as it has. My goal for the end of 2021 was to hit 3k. Now I’m about to hit 15! FIFTEEN THOUSAND PEOPLE!! I have to keep saying it out loud because I cannot believe it! I keep refreshing my page because it doesn’t feel real!

Thank you all for following along! I cannot tell you how grateful I am to be able to share our journey with you!

Hummus wraps are such an easy (and yummy) toddler lunch! This day Benj actually finished his plate which is so rare. I just spread any hummus on a wrap, add in greens, then roll and cut. I always serve with a fruit and a veg, cucumbers are a staple for Benji since he is obsessed. We also have been loving these @madegoodfoods crackers. ((Not sponsored 🤣)) If you follow me, you know I just love everything they make!

Happy New Year everyone!! Hope you have an amazing (and safe) venture into 2022. We reflect at this time of year and we are so grateful to all our customers for buying our produce and believing in us. Without you, we wouldn't still be here.

Small farms start up all the time and flop. Truth be told, it isn't an easy path sometimes. And we've always wanted our small business to grow organically, by the mouths of awesome people like you. We've seen some very hopeful growth in our business since its humble beginnings in February of early this year. Being newlyweds and starting a small farm, it really was a challenge. Not to mention all the challenges we are facing in the world today. And let's be honest, we sincerely over-estimated how much time and effort doing 2 farmer's markets a week would be for us. We sure learned a lot about each other when it came to communication. Haha! Shannon having a full-time job and running another small business and Chris having growing responsibilities, taking care of all our many animals, we found really quickly that there weren't enough hours in the day sometimes.

With all of that I say and all joking aside, we thank you, but man we're tired. So you can guess who is taking a break this week! ;)
