It is mid winter now on our farm.
Snow has gently fallen and cloaked the land,
though we know that sometime a hint of sun
will melt the ice and soften the earth and again
we will plant and prune and tend and harvest.
For now time is gently suspended and
our days are spent between planning and peace.
Winter is the season of ideas.
The subtle voice of the growing season
that whispers ‘there is so much to be done’
has quieted, and it is calm all about.
With a cup of tea in hand, dreaming out
over a whitened landscape, we are given liberty
to let our minds wander to envision a
world that might be.
In our minds, just like our favorite song the
big rock candy mountain, ‘the farmer’s trees are full of fruit, their
barns of full of hay’.
In our winter minds our farm is perfection,
barn roofs in perfect repair; orchard lanes neat
and straight, lovely flavors and scents
from kitchens and glorious flowers all about.
We would like to extend the most heartfelt thank you to each of our
guests and supporters for your
extraordinary efforts to sustain our farm through the challenges of
You made all the difference!
Our Hurd Orchards’ community is remarkable - caring, supportive,
Whether we see you once a year for Thanksgiving Pies or holiday gift
boxes, or whether you
picked your own luscious fruits each week throughout
the summer and fall, or pre-ordered picnic lunches and harvest boxes
each month or each week,
or ordered flats of berries, pecks of peaches
and freshly baked breads - please know that we notice and are both
and appreciative of, the remarkable outreach to us of each and every
one of our friends.
In the midst of last year’s endless strife we found great joy,
strength and solace in the gifts of the earth.
Reassuringly we began spring with buds and blossoms. We welcomed
summer with warm rain
and enveloping sunshine. We cared for our farm with the care that we
always have, and we
harvested abundant fruits from June through October.
Throughout 2020 we reimagined every step of our farming and marketing,
working to ensure safety on all fronts. The creative ideas that flowed
reshaped our farm,
and we blossomed anew. There are so many fun, new ideas to mingle with
our ongoing traditions!
We look forward with hope to the season upcoming.
