It’s FINALLY feeling like spring here on the farm! Sunny weather, sprouting garlic, chirping birds, crisp mornings that lead into warmer days… all these seasonal changes have inspired us to make some changes in our daily life to encourage all the growth that 2018 has to offer. This list include small changes that can make a big impact, and we’re excited to share with you our favorite ways to “spring clean” your life.
1. Get outside! We know this is easier said than done, especially during the work week. However, choosing to spend time outside can be as simple as drinking your coffee on your front porch, and as awesome as spending a whole day exploring in some of our beautiful city and state parks. Foxhollow Farm has a nature trail that’s open to the public during daylight hours, and we’d love for you to stop by our farm and take a wooded walk around our lake. Say hi to the cows while you’re at it.
2. Get back to your (food) roots! Need to clean out that fridge? You’ve never used that weird ingredient just sitting in your pantry? Have seven containers of baking powder for no reason? Consider donating unopened items to your local food pantry such as Dare to Care or giving them to your neighbors. This spring is also a great time to head back to your local farmers’ market and pick up fresh, seasonal produce or grab some 100% Grassfed Beef. Feeling extra inspired? Consider subscribing to our partner growers — Pavel’s CSA and Duck Duck Beet’s meal delivery are easy ways to get healthy and local food for your family.
3. Move and groove! I don’t know about you, but spring weather makes us feel like dancing. Treat yourself by making a cool playlist for cleaning, running, driving, or simply sitting at work. Bonus points if you jump around to the beat (we won’t tell anyone!). Our favorite tunes right now are inspired by our upcoming Sunset Concert Series lineup, and our first concert is just two months away.
