This will REALLY be our last post. :) We went to an amazing conference for the third year in a row this year at Stone Barns Center for Agriculture in New York. Check out this NPR article about it...recognize the person in the first picture? :)

We are writing this last post on the last night that we will be staying in our little log cabin. For those of you who don't already know, we have been offered an amazing opportunity to start a community farm at Sandy Spring Friends School where we both went to middle and high school. We will be living on campus and growing food for the cafeteria which serves three meals a day to day students, boarding students, faculty and staff. This will be a community supported farm which will involve people from all parts of the community: parents, teachers, students, staff, family, friends, administrators, and other local farmers.
We are so excited for this new adventure, but we are also sad to see the end of Truffula Seed Produce. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our very small farm - from the people who directly supported us (Linda and Dave, Liza, our wonderful CSA members, and are loyal market customers), to those who taught us so much of what we know (Jackie, Tom, Greg, Scott), to all of our friends and family (and blog readers! Zaw! :) ). We couldn't have done it without you!
We will be living in Olney in our new little apartment starting tomorrow. We plan to start a blog for the school and we will post a link here when we do so you can follow us there if you are interested!
