winter pursuits 2018

2017-01-11 16.47.21Winter on the farm means altering our schedule to conform to the season’s weather and limitations. It is both a blessing and a curse. We are not able to withstand bitter cold temperatures or deep snow to work outside. Still we have to protect our hens, bees and some of our plants. Our selection of farm grown, fresh food dwindles. And a full time job becomes ensuring we have a robust wood pile ready for our small wood-burning stove.

Our work doesn’t really slow down – it simply changes in type of pursuit. Somehow winter enables you to take deep contemplative breaths. For us this is accompanied with a good deal of reflection and analysis – about our lives, the farm and the larger world. It’s a time to take stock – acknowledge our problems and offer gratitude for what we have.

Last year was a particularly difficult one for Agraria and as we move into 2018, we are looking for opportunities to do better.
