    Summer at Bellwether Farm

    The seasons are changing at Bellwether Farm as summer 2021 slowly works its way into our lives. Days are longer and warmer. The forest is full again with all the trees leafed out, spending their days eating the sun – technically, photosynthesizing. Winter almost seems like a distant memory. Spring crops like lettuce, broccoli, and sugar snap peas are barely hanging on while summer crops like tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers are absolutely loving these hot temperatures.

Personnel changes and restructuring of responsibilities demanded creativity and flexibility on everyone’s part. And primary concern for the safety of visitors has required that we develop new ways of providing the hospitality and experiential formation that mark the farm’s ministry. The net result has been to use this period of uncertainty to explore new procedures and develop new protocols, and to employ in new ways the remarkable human and natural resources with which we are blessed.
