What we remember in a year to forget

When Ray was planning for the 2020 season, ordering seeds, feed, equipment, arranging schedules for getting pigs, chickens, rabbits, talking to guest chefs for potential farm dinners, it was long before COVID was on anyone’s radar. When he made and froze bone broths, soups, purees, tomatoes,sauce, sausages and more, little did he know how important his stockpiles would become… 

Although we are all acutely and painfully aware of what did not happen this season at the farm (farm dinners, happy hours, private parties, camping, casual drop bys, live music to name a few), we honestly are beyond grateful for what did. We were able to supply record numbers of customers in Brooklyn and the New Paltz/upstate area with produce and products for 8 months straight all while staying safe and protected. Everyone complied with the stringent  regulations at the Greenmarket, and our procedures for contactless payment and pick up at the farm. We all managed to stay safe and healthy, and the weather gods and crops rewarded us with no crop failures and bounties of tomatoes, squash, garlic and more!

A special shout out :
To the crew at Grand Army Plaza- Hardeep, Fanny and Erin for your tireless work which is twice as hard during COVID. We are humbled by your ongoing commitment to the farm. 

To Sujan- Stressful times call for comfort food and he did not disappoint.  As many people ate more meals at home, Sujan’s weekly offerings and treats took on special meaning and importance. I know more than one person got addicted to his juicy pulled pork, his flavorful empanadas, and his TO DIE FOR chocolate mousse!

To Jenna- who quickly adapted to the situation as we were going through it . She orchestrated our contactless payment and pick up system and made sure everyone got the food they wanted in a COVID safe compliant manner all over email.  AND taught Ray how to use a smart phone, no easy feat!

To all our neighbors, customers and friends who understood why we decided to keep the farm “closed” and still continued to shop with us, we are forever grateful for your loyalty, your comradery and sustained support. Above all, we’re beyond grateful for your support in continuing Ray’s mission to provide people with real food and produce.

DO WE MISS THIS? OF COURSE WE DO! here is to better days ahead  while we look back…
