Saturday, we enjoyed another wonderful market day at the Main Street Market. I cannot describe to you how enjoyable it is for us to connect with our customers. I just love talking goats and cheese and soap selection and pastured-egg-benefits with you all. I love that our farm is able to help bridge the gap between food and consumer -- and standing on that bridge is such a joy for me.
Since we re-use gently used cartons and so many of you are good about saving them for us, I thought it might be fun to start a dialogue of sorts on the cartons themselves. So, awhile back, we started writing on the inside of our egg cartons. Usually, it's a note about thankfulness. John and I usually package eggs at the end of our day, so taking a moment to note what we are thankful for in that moment seems fitting. We've also added Bible verses, quotes, or just a simple drawing to some of the cartons. And, it makes my heart so glad to get cartons back and see that you've added your own comments.
This carton was blank when it last left the farm, but it came back to us with a note of thanks!
If we keep it up (and keep the cartons pretty clean), each one will tell a little story, as we send a little piece of ourselves along to the next person. I just love this! It speaks of community and connection -- my favorite byproducts of operating our little farm. Please, please, keep it up!
