June 2020, Week 1

For months, we’ve been planning ways to make the Simple Share a richer, deeper, and more immersive experience. We know you chose your share for many reasons. But one refrain we’ve heard again and again is that you’re looking for ways to connect to your local community and the land on which we grow. We’re making that possible. Starting Monday, June 1st, your Simple Share will be not only a pickup of fresh produce and farm items but also a hands-on encounter with the natural world. You’ll choose a time that works for your schedule, and in that small window meet with a farmer who sees the world in an eye-opening way. Together with your guide, you’ll explore the fields, discovering what’s ripe and how to tell. You’ll use all your senses to experience the potential of growing things, of a beautifully simple life. You’ll ask questions and learn, but mostly you’ll allow your attention, for a moment, to linger. Your guide will draw your focus to the curl of a leaf, the swelling orange globe of a young tomato, the way vines reach for the light. In the end, you’ll leave with the produce and small-batch goods you’re used to. But you’ll also leave with something much more than that: a feeling of openness and connection that will sustain and nourish you through the week.

If you have not chosen a time slot for your experience yet, please email marketmanager@petersenfarm.com.
