Perishables Manager, Rachel, and Store Manager, Stacey, stopped into @oldcapfood yesterday to see where our awesome #local #tofu is made. They use #iowagrown soybeans and take a lot of pride in the art of making tofu, handcrafted in small batches. They even create their own silk screens and print their labels by hand. We are proud to sell their tofu at the #coo#coop. Thanks for the tour, Jake! #localrocks #eatmoretofu #coop

#tbt to stellar Iowa skies and sunflowers🌻 🌻 @pepperharrow_flowers and I are going to be planting roughly 150K more sunflowers this year for cutting so definitely looking forward to getting a few pictures of that! We’re also going to be putting in an additional 1/4 acre sunflower garden just for the bees 🐝 and birds 🐦 I bet our winter birds will enjoy it! 🌻 🌱 🌻 #sunflowers #summer #iow#iowaers #iowa #midwest #flo#flowerfarma> #flowerfarm #iowagrown #bhgflowers

“Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson. This photo was taken the morning after my daughter’s wedding on our farm. I found this bridesmaids bouquet in a bucket of water on a buffet table and felt so grateful for the beautiful ceremony we hosted. But this morning, I need some patience and peace. For some reason, I am feeling angst about the upcoming growing season. Perhaps it’s because our baby seedlings are starting to emerge from their trays under the lights. I want to fast forward to the height of the growing season when the fields are in full bloom and I know it’s going to be ok. Know that we have successfully nurtured our flowers and they are beautiful and bring joy to those who receive them. But spring and summer will come in their due time. Until then I will tend to our seedling babies and care for them the best that I can until it’s warm enough to plant them outside so they can stretch their stems and color the world. #happyweekend everyone! #bouquet #patience #localflowers #givemestrength #iowagrown #flowerfarmer #faith #bochnerfarms #bochnerflowers

Grow babies grow! Our little daylily seedlings are coming along nicely. We will plant these out in the spring, and if they produce strong healthy flowers we will propagate them for future sales to daylily lovers, collectors, landscapers, and nurseries. It’s a long process but the hubs is a daylily addict. So, there’s that. 😘

Terrible pictures but we learned about the up and coming Brussels sprouts market in Iowa and everything it takes to grow from our friends at #grinnellheritagefarm (they've got the best sprouts) at @practicalfarmer annual conference, plus beautiful photos of @old_tree_farm made the presentation. Take away, they are hard to grow. #pfi18 #favoritefarms #revival #sprouts #hotitem #localfood #iowagrown

Introducing Birdie. We try not to play favorites but...she’s our favorite. She was a bottle lamb a few years ago and has grown to be a big beautiful healthy ewe who has been a good mother to her lambs. She almost always greets us when we go out to the pasture and loves it when we take the time to pet her, especially between her front two legs. She’s especially helpful when we are trying to lead the flock to new pasture because she’s a willing leader. #bottlelamb #birdie #hairsheep #katahdin #ewe #lunavalley #flockleader #sheepfriend #grazeiowa #iowafarmer #farmher #sheepfarmer #farmerlife #iowagrown

Hotel baths during our hot minute in Iowa this weekend. 🛁 Riley got to drive through 3 states as we visited my Grandpa who wasn’t doing so hot. I’m happy to say he’s recovering well & we had a nice visit with family that we don’t see often. We’re so grateful for my parents who traveled with us to help out and keep us company. Sometimes it really does take a tribe to raise a family, and I will never not be thankful for that. ♥️ Also, we survived our first road trip with a toddler which is both empowering & traumatizing. 😂 Just kidding, but we may not be traveling again any time soon. 😉 How was your first travel experience with little ones? 🚗
