Wrapping Up

xmas wreathThanksgiving flew by in a frenzy of family and food. There was plenty of laughter and merriment as well as the simultaneous intake of breaths as the roasted turkey was presented. We hope that your dinners, whether they be small and intimate or large and hearty, filled both your hearts and stomaches. We were so happy to receive pictures of how this year’s Turkeys turned out!

Our year was productive and as great of an adventure as ever. Lima Farms stretched out our presence at a few more Farmer’s Markets and tried our hands at producing new crops (#freshginger) in our new greenhouses!

We further expanded by beginning to breed our sows (female pigs) and began building new farm infrastructure. The new mobile hoop house has automatic waterers and chicken wire floors. This allows for cleanliness and airflow. Little ladders allow the chickens to walk up and down from this raised hoop house with ease.

We thank you all for the words of encouragement and never-ending support. You lend us the momentum that we need to further lighten our carbon footprints and continue producing healthy and sustainable foods for the community.

To a year that is quickly wrapping up, we again thank you for your kindness and dedications. We hope you enjoy all of the foods we produced for your holidays and festivities and wish your days be surrounded by friends, families and love.

Have a great end of the year and see you in 2015!
