Dare I say it? We are "famous"!
This past summer I was contacted by two magazines wanting to feature EverGreen Farm in their publication. It was rather exciting. We answered their questions, put together the requested information and photos, sent them off, and got back to farming.
A few months later it was a very nice surprise to get a package in the mail from Zone 4 Magazine with a little note that said "check out pages 2, 10, and 75." Here we are in the Winter 2009 edition.
From their website (zone4magazine.com): "Zone 4 is a quarterly magazine devoted to gardening, landscaping, local foods, and outdoor living in the Rocky Mountain states of Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, northern Idaho and northeastern Utah. The editorial focus is on expert growing advice, colorful photography, and news around the region featuring local foods and sustainable growing practices."
Page 2 is the Contents page which features a photograph I've posted on this blog of our chicken tractor. Page 75 is a map of the region pinpointing all the farms and businesses featured in this particular edition.
Page 10 is the article written about our farm and a picture of Shain and Eli I took a few years ago (Eli looks so young). It's a very nice article.
Since then we have had repeated calls and comments from friends and acquaintances saying "Hey, I saw you in a magazine!" "That is so cool!" I know. I know!
Just before Christmas I received another unexpected package from Zone 4.
I AM MISS JULY!
It was a very nice surprise to look through this 2010 Zone 4 Calendar to find 2 feature photographs from EverGreen Farm. Again, both are pictures I've posted on this website. I love it!
July is a picture of me walking through our garlic field. It really is one of my favorites. November is me with a group of workshares working out in the muddy fields. You can't hardly tell who we are because we are such a mess.
So for Christmas, many of my family members received Zone 4 calendars. If they like it or not. Because "Hey, we are famous!"
