My favorite part of our cooking classes are when Dale Allred talks to the participants about Jacob's Cove Farm and why + how they do what they do. They want the people in our community to have real food available to them because they want real food. Food that nourishes not only our bodies and spirit, but our community as well. I hope that his speech from our latest class was recorded in length on livestream (we were having internet difficulties and the feed was going in and out), because it is always moving and inspiring to hear him talk.
Melissa and I believe in what the Allred's are doing, which is why we hope you come out to the farm sometime to meet Dale and see the work they are at every day.
In fact, why don't you come out to the farm this week? It just so happens that this week they are transferring the seedlings that have been growing safely harbored in the farm house for the past number of months to the greenhouses that Dale and his workers have been working on for even longer. There are hundreds of plants in the farmhouse living room that need a new and spacious earthy home, and they have many many more seedlings to plant than just the ones camped there. Come down to the farm any time this week and get your fingernails, knees, and (if you have them) kids, dirty. You are sure to see us there.
Dale will be at the farm Monday through Saturday during daylight hours, come anytime you can and be inspired by his vision and passion. Dale mentioned that the ground is muddy outside the greenhouse but completely covered in plastic inside. It's also warm and sunny inside as well, so you may still want to bring a jacket and some sunscreen (just in case) on a sunny day.
Be a part of it all.
Be a part of your community.
Be a part of bringing Utah real food.
