Steve and I accept the Organic Farmers of the Year award, with our children Sophie and Ari and longtime employees Kerry Devlin, Simone O’Donahue, and Maggie Schley.

Steve and I have some news to share.  We have been named the 2016 Organic Farmers of the Year for the midwest, and received the award at the MOSES organic farming conference last weekend.  In our community of organic farmers, this is the highest possible honor.  We are thrilled and excited and still buzzing from all the love that came our way at the conference.  It was one of the best weekends of our lives.  Tipi CSA members, this award belongs to you too.  We could not farm without your loyal support!

We invited longtime employees Kerry, Simone and Maggie to the conference with us, and introduced them during the award ceremony.  They got a big round of applause when we explained that they’ve worked for us for 10, 16 and 20 years respectively.  They (and all our employees) are a key part of why our farm has reached its current stability and productivity.  We could not farm it without them.

Here’s the full award text from the conference booklet.
