Snuck Farm isn’t an I - it’s an us

My to-do list is long. Yours probably is, too. Every day, no matter how many items I check off, it seems that more sprout in their place. It’s the Medusa of to-do lists.

I can’t do it alone. I can’t carry everything on myself. As the years have made Snuck Farm into a thriving place, I’ve come to rely more and more on our fabulous team. Without them, the to-do list would simply never end. It doesn’t ever quite end with them, either, but at least the end is in sight.

Early on, it became clear that we couldn’t just hire people who wanted any job. They had to want to work here. After a while, the farm seemed to gather people. They found us at the market or community events, arrived at the farm and just fit. Having had the experience of working with amazing people, now I can recognize who’s going to work out. They have a love for not just the work, but for the meaning behind it. Like me, they let out a sigh when they walk into the greenhouse. They push me to be better: mindfully, intentionally better. We keep each other sane, and laughing, and looking forward to what’s coming.

Snuck isn’t just me. It’s us. I’m excited to see who it’s going to bring us next.

This is our last email of the year. Our last of the decade - though since Snuck isn’t a decade old, that feels a little strange to say. (Who can say what we’ll look like when 2030 rolls around!) A lot has happened this year, most of it good.

Not your typical farm
Not your typical farm

December 19, 2019

When people hear that I’m a farmer, they have a certain set of expectations. We all know what the prototypical farm looks like: long, straight rows of crops, maybe a few animals, a red barn, a silo. We have a picture in our minds of what we’ll see.
