Dear Market Friends:
Our market news stories don’t hit the headlines very often, and we like it that way. It’s not that we support hiding heads in the sand, but when the scale of events is so large that it feels overwhelming, having a connection with the people who feed us is reassuring, basic, and meaningful. Of course, their news is not all rosy either, but we try to share some of the back stories behind your meals.
A few events that didn’t make it into the papers:
Last week we had to disappoint some people who ordered eggs. Indy explained that an opossum had broken into their hen house in the night. It turns out that one frenzied possum can do a remarkable amount of damage, so unfortunately Kooner Farms’ egg supply will be greatly reduced for a while.
We were also short duck eggs because the ducks at All Sorts Acres have gone broody. They’ve decided it’s time to amass clutches of eggs and sit tight to turn them into spring ducklings, and they are not about to let Tim and Jennifer collect the eggs as usual. So, out of respect for the All Sorts ducks’ wishes, you’d better order duck eggs from Bees Universe instead.
