Como estas Big Muddy Buddies?

How's it going Big Muddy Buddies?

Life has been busy and exciting over these past few weeks in our neighborhood with many wonderful developments to talk about. All of us at the farm want to send out a big thanks to everyone who made the Secret Cafe dinner such a success. In case you missed it, this past Friday friends of Big Muddy Urban Farm set up a dinner at a home in the Orchard Hill neighborhood where all proceeds went back to the collective. We were blessed to have donations from Upstream Brewing Company and the Tea Smith, as well as others, making the night as a whole that much smoother. A homemade four course meal, good company, good music, and good brew... what more could you ask for? We'll be hosting another dinner in the next few months, so keep your ears open!

Personally, I'm really excited for the Hootenanny happening this Sunday at the Waiting Room. The event in Benson is going to be a fundraiser ($5 cover) for Big Muddy Urban Farm and Sweet Thyme Urban Farms, with music from Southpaw Bluegrass Band, Matt Cox, Gerald Lee Jr., Lincoln Dickison & Kate Williams, as well as myself. I'm going on early with my friends Michaela and Auto, so come early and plan to stay.

Also, the Localmotive food truck, a new company serving a menu that emphasizes seasonal, locally-sourced products will serve at the Hootenanny. This growing season we are partnering with Localmotive by selling them a special kind of potato called Bintje's. We are always looking for new businesses to partner with, so if you or anyone you know is interested in purchasing local produce for your establishment feel free to email us -- or contact me (Matt Cronin) directly 402-515-2471. 

The last thing on my mind is how I'm just itching for spring to come. I don't know about ya'll, but all of these thunderstorms are making me stir crazy to get my hands in the dirt. I've got a feeling though that mother winter isn't going to pack up and leave for another month, but we'll see. Until next time, take care and we hope to see you soon!
