"Hippocampus. It's the part of your brain that is associated with space and memory. It's also how I think about business planning. My goal with our annual business plan (we call it Hippo Camp) is to do all the thinking upfront, then rely on that plan to help alleviate decision making fatigue in the heat of the farming season." - Farmer Taylor @footprintfarm
Before the holiday break we sat down as a crew and completed the first few steps of "Hippo Camp" from @habitfarming (which is run by Farmer Taylor☝️). It was a great way to close out the end of one season before we jump into Winter CSA and everything is relatively fresh on our minds! Listing all of our Achievements/Disappointments (step 1) we were surprised by just how many Achievements there were. We also discovered that all of our disappointments fell into the research and systems bucket just as she said would be true to non-beginning farmers (for beginners most issues will fall more into the infrastructure and equipment). We are now taking all that information and running it through the Stop Doing/Keep doing/Start Doing (step 2). In the past we have tackled the season's disappointments one issue at a time and quite often they aren’t all written out together in a list. So we're really looking forward to having a clear list and set expectations ready to go out the gate in the New Year. Better habits all around.
Whether you are new to farming or not... I highly recommend following along and signing up for her email updates (via the link in the @habitfarming profile). I have enjoyed following along as she shares their successes and failures as farmer's and small business owners as well as her mad organizational skills and her funny sense of humor. She's a great writer and is also super relatable. Thank you Taylor for taking the time to share your experience and knowledge and for compiling all the goodies over @habitfarming. We love your posts and energy. You are an inspiration - thank you for doing the good work! We look forward to following along and being part of the conversation! #habitfarming#growbetter#nerdalert🚨🤓
We had a blast spending a Friendsgiving day with @tylermetcalfe and @arlocf shooting a feature for @instagram. To follow along visit Instagram’s Instagram (so meta right?) also visit some close longtime friends of ours @neverlab@soterwines@tallfirs_building that helped make this day so much fun. As you all know there is never a dull moment on the farm so a big thank you to our buds for making Friendsgiving so special. ❤️
Out standing in the field. We, each of us, spend a lot of time alone on the farm... Working, thinking, sometimes dreaming, sometimes worrying but mostly hoping. Hoping that the work we do is important. That it serves a purpose that is greater than we who tend the land. We are grateful to have our work. To work hard and nourish many. That is a calling. It must be because we have given up so much to do it. But, as is the nature of these things, the more we give the greater the return. Could it be that our favorite part of farming is watching the children of our customers grow. To someday see their children’s children grow and eat salads made of chicory. That’s the dream. Happy Thanksgiving from your farmers Jess and Brian. ✨❤️
