Farm to Family….Finally!

Say that ten time fast!! So I finally made to farm to family. On Fridays their bus is about a mile from my house. However, I always forget. Today I was driving home from getting compost and there they were! I have to say, I had both kids, they were busy and I felt totally overwhelmed, but it was really cool. The guy even gave Tristan a neat packet that contained seeds so he could grow his own food, sadly either we left it there or from point A to point B it got lost. I love that they do this because the surest way to get kids to eat things is to first engage them. Tristan will not eat salads from store brought lettuce, but let us go pick it, clean it and dry it together and all he can talk about is how much he wants that salad. Plus it gives them an appreciation for what it takes to grow food.

As is typical in my life, I am not a trend setter, so I figure I am the last person that has finally gone to check them out. However, if for some reason you haven’t go. You can also find them on Facebook.

Hey Lady,

As much as I love the idea of Farm to Family and especially the bus, the owner was rude to us on not one, but both occasions. I was so proud of myself for giving hima second chance and he failed.

I will stick with Dominion Harvest and the good ole SJFM.

What a great thing to introduce to your children!! Anything that will make them eat veggies is great.

Am now a fan! Cool! Now that I work downtown, I don't EVER get to see that bus. And I don't think it was there before I started.
