January 8: Sad News from Basin Farm
I was shocked and saddened yesterday morning to receive a call that Basin Farm was burning. I had just been thinking about their sizable order for yesterday's delivery and was happy that they were listing again on the network after some time pursuing their own markets.

I sent a text to David at the farm to offer my thoughts and well wishes, fully expecting that he would be too involved with the happenings there to respond.

Instead, he promptly called me and let me know that everyone had escaped safely, although the home that housed many people was declared a total loss. He also let me know that he had the order for WFF ready to go and could I meet him at the Sunoco station in Bellows Falls, since the road in and out of the farm was closed.

Such is the unmatched dedication of our friends over at Basin Farm. I am sure that their character and perseverance will ensure that they find a way forward, but if there are opportunities to help them in the near future, I will be sure to share them.

I'm waiting to hear what the future availability is for their products, but in the meantime we have plenty of other stuff to choose from including offerings for Harvest of the Month, which are Beets and Rutabagas! Thanks!
