We sure are a lucky trio of people. After making it through a “transitional” year, in which my partner and I both started new jobs that paid the bills (barely), but didn’t exactly inspire us, we were offered a very special opportunity. Our dear friends, Calvin and Bradi, moved to Southwest Colorado last year to work on an organic farm, called Chimney Rock Farms. I followed their journey on Facebook all year and felt so happy for our friends! They really seemed to love their new life. So of course, we felt very honored and surprised when they came to us in October and told us that the farm could use our help. It was a pretty easy decision for us, especially after visiting them and hearing about all of the exciting things that the farm is doing. Rob (my partner) was offered a position running their C.S.A. (Community Supported Agriculture) and I will be working in their market and doing other farm-type things.
So that brings us here. We are packing up, tying loose ends, and feeling very excited about this new chapter. We are going to learn a lot in the next year about farming, country life, and ourselves. I plan to share what I’ve learned in this blog, which I imagine will cover everything from parenting to cooking to crafting to sustainability. I feel that I will greatly benefit from having this as an outlet during such a huge life change.
We are ready for our big adventure. I’d love to have you along for the ride
