AT AOOA THIS MONTH...
... we are working to open the AOOA farmstand this June! We are holding an open door day Sunday June 6th, come say hi!
We will sell scrumptious farm snacks from custards made with our free to roam wild worm wrangling heritage breed hens to freshly picked salads and open faced tartines! We will also sell AOOA raw goods like honey, vegetables, cut flowers, wool, plant starts and many more items! We are very excited and hope that this will be a fulfilling way to welcome individuals to the farm until we are able to build out the restaurant.
We also continue to start seeds indoors, transplant baby plants and direct seed seeds to the outside. We are building out our vegetable gardens within an area of our silvopasture, receiving tree orders, working up a workshop calendar to offer you guys this summer starting in June, caring for our heritage breed Karakul ewes and their babies, building the first prototype of our horse trailer turned mobile chicken coop, welcoming new bees, new ducks, new guinea hens, and new laying hens! A note on the new hens! Our current hens are splendid but we learned a lot about about which do better here and want to grow the flock with careful attention to select only endangered breeds per The Livestock Conservancy.
We look forward to safely meeting more of our community this summer and enjoying this hopeful and plentiful season!

PAST AOOA EVENTS
All One One All Farm’s mission is to forge new relationships with the environment with particular attention to what we eat through unique learning opportunities. This includes eating an awesome meal, attending a natural dye workshop that uses plants we grow on-site, picking berries, watching bees go in and out of their hives with pollen on their toes, deboning a chicken, picking up your greens for the week, and much much more....
Here are some of our past events that seemed to fit the bill of facilitating a biodiverse and regenerative agriculture, and connecting people with their rich and productive local landscape.
