Just Add Water

July 2013 048
With the quick spike of the mercury to the low nineties in early June, I realized that I needed a way to keep our eggs cool at one of our drop sites. There were already a couple of fridges and a freezer humming along at their own pace in the heat. So why not follow suit and add another fridge? That would be the obvious choice. But I couldn’t bring myself to do it; in this case more is not better. Besides, if I’m going to spend time focusing on creating clean food, shouldn’t it be presented in a clean manner?

At the same time, a friend of mine was telling me about this documentary he had watched about living a little lighter in regards to carbon emissions. And in this animated, detailed retelling of a movie I may never watch, he mentions this crazy pot refrigerator thing that the protagonist in the movie uses. Now this got me thinking. After a little research it turns out that the pot fridge thingy was invented in Africa for small farmers, is water cooled, and called a Zeer. I was sold and our very own Zeer was born.

Farm Store

008

We are constantly working on creating better access to our products and have recently added a new location. We have joined our fellow farms in opening a small farm store, hidden away on a quiet, unassuming street on the south side of Ashland. We have a sweet little spot in a friend’s garage where we will be selling eggs. We have individual dozens along with standing orders that people pick up from this location. If you find that you’re in need of another dozen, please come by and pick up eggs during the day. Out of respect for the owner’s privacy, if you are interested in picking up eggs at this location contact us to get the address. If you find that you would like to change the location that you currently get your eggs from just let us know.
