After a sedentary holiday season marked by multiple multi-course meals, we needed to get outside and spend some time in the bracing cold. During a contemplative walk at the Natick Community Organic Farm, we counted up the number of cookies we ate over the past few weeks and multiplied that by the number of Hallmark movies we’d watched. That equation added up to a wake-up call. Time to get back on the righteous path of healthy living. We’re now ready to step away from the wassail.
Here are some pics of our visit.
An update on the barn rebuild
Early in the morning of March 17, 2021 the Natick Community Organic Farm’s 200+ year-old barn burned to the ground. (You can see our story on the fire here.)
Since the event, the farm has been working to raise $1.1 million for a new barn with a state-of-the-art attached greenhouse.
According the the NCOF website, “Our architects have submitted designs, and as of September 2022, we have the permits in hand to begin building.”
