Last week as my wife and I were driving on Route 315 in Deansboro there was a sign by the Boro Bar that said Strawberry Patch and Greenhouse. Intrigued, we drove behind the old Yellow train station building and up a hill and we discovered quite a remarkable place, called Blunts Berries. A family owned farm that offers strawberries, hanging baskets, potted flowers, succulents, tomatoes and much more. In chatting with the owner Bob and his son (a 3rd year Horticulture major at Morrisville College) I got the sense that they were extremely passionate about their product, farm and growing customer base. There greenhouses and flowers looked amazing! I recommend visiting this hidden gem!

New York State Wrestling Committee organized a virtual tournament for former wrestlers across the state and one of Co-Movements long time client and close friend Dave Gleeson was nominated to be in the tournament. Each week people voted for who they thought would win in a wrestling match. As the weeks progressed Dave kept winning and finally made it to the finals defeating his opponent taking first place. There was a total of 154 wrestlers in his weight class that started the tournament. Quite the impressive accomplishment, congrats Dave!

Quote I'm Pondering:
" An organic farmer is the best peacemaker today, because there is more violence, more death, more destruction, more wars, through a violent industrial agricultural system. And to shift away from that into an agriculture of peace is what organic farming is doing."
- Vandana Shiva
What I'm reading, listening, watching or eating:
As most of you know I watch little to no T.V. as I feel there are so many other amazing things to be doing BUT once in a while a show comes along that I truly enjoy. The last series I was into was The Office, but after 10+ people kept recommending I watch Yellowstone I gave it a whirl and all I can say is they were correct, the show is unbelievable. The show demonstrates family loyalty, savagery, courage, and a true commitment to a generational legacy. I highly recommend it!
P.S. The are releasing Season 4 this June!

What's for Sale on the Farm?
Our pasture raised chicks have spent the last week acclimating a few hours a day to their outside hotel. They love being out there scratching the ground, eating small bugs, breathing fresh air and roosting on small branches. This weekend we borrowed a "chicken tractor" from our Farmer Harold which allows us to move our chickens to a new fresh piece of grass each day. Harold has been using Chicken Tractors for 25+ years!
Each week we receive new pre-orders for those looking to purchase pasture raised chicken, 100% grass-fed beef or pastured pork. All our products can be found on our website page here. Email us to receive the member password.
One question we have been getting from people interested in buying meat from our Farm is "Can we order weekly versus in bulk?" The answer is YES. We understand not everyone has a chest freezer so weekly orders are perfectly fine.
All orders can be sent to email@example.com .
This weeks media piece many of you will find very intriguing is Vandana Shivas talk about the future of food, Enjoy!
Our 100% Grassfed beef will be ready late summer!
We have heard from some people about their interest in purchasing a chest freezer so they are able to purchase meat in bulk and take advantage of that savings. Below are two freezers that received great reviews and are very affordable. We have the large 7 cubic feet one below and love it. Holds 1/4 cow, 2 deer, 15 chickens, and frozen blueberries with room to spare! Small Chest Freezer Large Chest Freezer KIDS: 81% of middle school students can no longer do a chin-up and 70% can not do one push-up! THIS IS NOT GOOD NEWS FOLKS.
