Philosophy 8 – Celebrate seasonality
We utilise our seasonal productivity as a marketing bonus. It provides a real story for our customers as they lament the last of the peaches and rejoice the onset of fresh, new season honey. This is an important educational tool to engage town folk with the realities of farm life. It demonstrates our commitment to question the value of outside inputs of materials and energy to force the ecosystem to continually produce. It allows the farm to take a breath, and the farm workers, to enjoy the seasonality of the farm tasks.
