Hello again brother and sisters,

It’s been a while!  Hope y’all are doing well.  I’ve been at Common Hands Farm (commonhandscsa.com), a relatively new CSA for just under two weeks!

It’s been a great experience thus far and should continue down that same path.  A path that includes biodynamic and vegetable enlightenment!  That’s a path I can and will get on board with.

Even though I’ve only been here a short period of time we’ve accomplished quite a bit!  The we I’m referring to is the current Common Hands team of Dan (owner), Tess (owner), Andrea (apprentice), Caoline (apprentice), Eric (employee), and Raleigh (dog).

For good measure here’s a photo of the infamous veggie van!

If you see it driving through your town stop and let them know you recognize them from Organic Farmer on a Bikes blog!  Who knows, they just might let you take a picture with the van!
