And our thank you note again!
A loving thank you from the Lake Dividers to all of our market friends:
For the first time in 8 years, we are taking a break from winter growing. As every growing season does, this year brought many challenges and as many gifts. We will curl up in the winter’s den and focus on better caring for ourselves, the earth, and our market family (you)! Don’t worry, we will make sure to leave time to celebrate, connect, and simply enjoy each other’s company.
We want to thank you so much for your continuous support this year and every year. It has come in the form of kind words spoken and written, gifts for our growing family, feeding us delicious treats, the sharing of ideas, and of course choosing our vegetables from the smorgasbord of choices at markets. Thank you will never be enough to say what is in our hearts so please hear our deep gratitude and big love for you.
Details of our break:
- You may see us turn up at market from time to time this winter. We have a lot of storage roots. Please look for our emails or facebook posts for notifications. www.lakedividefarm.com
- We plan to return to the Eastern and Royal Oak Markets in early spring (possibly as early as March) and the Ann Arbor markets in later spring. We may resume Stockbridge pick-ups in the spring as well. Please check our website for details as they emerge.
- If you want to connect with us during the winter months, please send us an email. I will try to check weekly. We may not respond quickly, but we will make every effort to respond eventually. email@example.com
-Helen, Jim & Wiley (Plus Exie and Boomer)
No preorder for these markets!
