Milestones and New Beginnings

The farm was happy to provide a venue for our good friend Dianne as she celebrated her 50th birthday. The evening began with Holy Mass under the tent (it is always a blessing to have the Eucharist celebrated on the property), followed by a potluck dinner with about fifty family members and close friends. The gathering also served as a send off for Dianne’s son Joseph, who is entering religious life with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal this fall. The farm offered a Spiritual Bouquet, asking attendees to stop in the chapel to offer prayers for Dianne and Joseph and to write a note of love and support for them. 

Though Bob the Rooster is gone, his legacy lives on - two new chicks hatched this week! The circle of life continues. Thanks to a gift from friends Mike and Teresa, we now have a small orchard of apple, peach, and pear trees filling the gap between the greenhouse and the pasture.
