Feeding Sisters

I am prouder than ever to be a veggie farmer in Sisters.

Resilience and the strength of our community will surely come to shine in the next few months. Everyone has been playing critical roles and it is in these times when newfound strengths and “silver linings” emerge. One silver lining I want to shed light upon is the growth of interconnectivity between our local food system and community. Feeling more vulnerable during these uncertain times, more people have been turning to our farmers for the most basic of needs: food. You can be assured that Seed to Table Farm, along with many other local farmers, is here for you and your family.

Oh, how I do wish the fields were overflowing with sweet greens at this very moment. But now more than ever, we need something lovely to look forward to; Central Oregon grown veggies are on their way! Seed to Table is certainly missing having students on the farm.

Currently we are crafting lessons that all students can participate in from home! Our team has jumped into action and we are developing emergency food relief programs and we will be overflowing with even more fresh produce! Our staff is more focused and determined than ever. As we navigate the changing climate of COVID-19 we will continue to adjust. National, regional and local resources are helping increase our already diligent food safety program. Local farmers are certain we can provide you with safe, organic and nutrient dense produce. The heart of our farm is stronger than ever.

Your local farmers have been here for you, learning how to thrive in this harsh climate and we are here for you now.

The power and importance of our local food system has never been more apparent.

Personally, the more local a product and store, the safer and more reassured I feel.

A familiar face of someone who cares about the health of my family and business.

A product where I know about the production chain.

To me, Sisters has always done “local” great, and with this crisis we will make it even stronger.

I am filled with gratitude for the cultivation of community support we have been growing for years.

During these times of hardships and feelings of vulnerability, Seed to Table’s team (along with many other local farmers) is joining in the cause to assure that we can keep being as local as possible.

We are inspired to feed our neighbors (with a wave through the car window) and our skills gained from past seasons are helping us get through these April snowstorms!
