Colvins' Shareholder Days they host at their farm (one in spring and one in fall). It was so much fun!!
It sounds like a yuppy thing to do: go check out your produce at the local farm and eat their food whilst you pepper the farmer with nerdy questions on the organic nature of the produce.... but the Colvins aren't like that. They welcomed everyone into their home warmly, answered any and all questions, were bold in their declarations of trust in the Lord, and took us on tractor rides around the farm.
Below are some pictures of "our" farm and the produce that we'll (Lord willing/weather permitting) be indulging in soon. You'll see some of the baby chickens, too, since they're working towards adding eggs into the lineup someday. The metal things pictured are high tunnels that will enable them to start wintering crops more successfully. The farmer pictured is Caleb, the young man who mans the booth at the farmer's market where we pick up our shareholder box each week. They have pick-up locations in Chattanooga, Knoxville, Maryville, Oak Ridge, Crossville, and--new this summer--in Franklin, TN.
