So much exciting news: First of all, we just received our organic certification for our vegetables from our certifying agency (NOFA-NY LLC.). Took a lot of paperwork, but it's nice to get sorted out, and now we have the official papers to go with our responsible farming practices!
Second, we're delighted to be welcoming a new farmer to Maitri: Alison will be joining the Maitri Farm team for the rest of the season to help us grow the vegetable operation for the years to come and take care of our lovely flock of hens. She's bringing a lot of great skills from her experience in veggie farming, diversified farming, and farm education, and is a complete joy to be around. Hopefully you'll all get to meet her!
