Unity Farm Journal - Fourth Week of May 2016

What is the definition of the perfect wedding?   Joy, love, happiness, inspriration and energy are felt by everyone?    Families come together without conflict, embarrasment, or awkwardness?   The guinea fowl avoid flying over the guests?

If that’s the definition, my daugther’s wedding at Unity Farm this weekend was a 10 out of 10.

Here are two photos

My daughter Lara and my son in law David designed the ceremony, wrote the vows, and created an afternoon at the farm in which all the guests told stories about their lives with the bride and groom.   We had 18 guests total - just family and close friends.

We drank Unity Farm beverages, ate Unity Farm foods, and gave farm tours - the tree houses, the pigs, the vegetables, the trails, and the revolutionary war era graves.    We even picked "marriage carrots".

I’ll post a digital album of the festivities soon.

Although the wedding prep, events, and cleanup consumed our weekend, we still were able to deliver vegetables to the Tilly and Salvy’s farm stand.   Here’s my notebook entry

1 case Farmhouse cider
2 dozen eggs
1.5 pounds of Shiitake mushrooms
6 heads of Romaine
24 Atomic purple carrots
1 pound kale
1 pound mache
6 heads of Bibb lettuce

We’re truly a small family farm delivering items picked by hand and grown with care.   This weekend, we’re running a mushroom mini-course.  We may offer educational seminars on weekends in the future.   We’ll continue our summer planting - marketmore cucumbers, purple bell peppers, and bellstar tomatoes.   The berries are all in flower and the farm is burst of green everywhere - we’re at the peak of Spring growth, which provided the perfect setting for a relaxed wedding.
