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.

It’s hard, in a houseful of people, to find space and time for yourself. There’s always a chore to do, always something to clean up, always a form to sign or a meal to prepare. People clamor for attention. Work clamors for attention.

I love eating local. There’s nothing like visiting a farmers market and holding a piece of produce that was picked a few hours ago. It’s a whole-body experience. When you pick up a peach, it’s heavy and sweet-smelling.
