All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Seabreeze Organic Farm - Fun, educational, and healthy! YUMMo!

“Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bands.” ~Thomas Jefferson

Community Supported Agriculture
CSAs are a means of connecting community consumers directly to their local growers. It means a mutual commitment between the two, representing both the production and the consumption of food. Farms are not grocery stores; items cannot be picked up and put back on shelves. In order for small farms to have continuity, they must know how much to plant, for how many, and when to change crops. This is dependent on a continuous relationship with their supporters. In order for such a farm to be economically viable, they must produce a quantity and diversity of produce and receive fair market value for such items.

Stephenie’s (the owner) goal of leaving a good lasting legacy for the rest of the world can be seen daily in the long, joyful struggle of producing fresh seasonal organic produce for delivery to her families. With the ever-increasing time crunch people are faced with along with our growing dependency on foreign food sources CSA initiatives like Seabreeze Organic Farm can give consumers confidence in the food they are eating and even a little extra time to prepare a savory nutritional meal.
