Upcoming Events (and a few cute photos)

We’re hosting an awesome art and music event at the farm this Saturday, the 19th, from 2-5pm called høle in the skY with Kathy McTavish and Zeitgeist New Music. The full press release and more information is available here, and here’s a brief summary:
“Saint Paul-based music group Zeitgeist and Duluth composer/cellist/environmentalist Kathy McTavish join forces March 19 for a special presentation of McTavish’s chamber work  at the Food Farm in Wrenshall, Minn. Featuring electronic and acoustic music, video, and an interactive exhibition,høle in the skY will transform the Food Farm’s expansive root cellar into a pre-apocalyptic world where extinction is imminent and our ecosystem is on the verge of collapse.”

When’s the last time you saw something like that in a root cellar?

Also, we’ll be at the Local CSA Open House this Sunday the 20th from 2-5pm at Clyde Iron. Stop by and say hello if you’re in the neighborhood, drop off your renewal form if you haven’t sent it in yet, or send friends and neighbors down if they’d like to meet their future farmers before signing up.

And for those of you who keep asking, I’ve included a few Truman photos as well…

That’s all for now, time to get back to the greenhouse!
For the farm crew,
Janaki

Food Farm Slow TV

Ever wanted a behind the scenes look at how your vegetables are grown, packed, and delivered? Well, you’re in luck–this season we* will be releasing a series of minimally-edited videos that show the farm crew engaged in the repetitive jobs that add up to something beautiful. The first was shot on our February Winter Share packing day. Action-packed? Mmmm, no. Oddly compelling? Well, we think so. Enjoy!

*Who is “we”? Your farmers wouldn’t know the first thing about how to do this, but fortunately our friend (and farm member) Mike Scholtz thinks weird farm videos are mesmerizing (he calls it agsploitation). Mike’s other work finds the heart and humor in subjects like Viking reenactors and competitive jigsaw puzzling.
