Due to Covid19 restrictions, our market at Lansdale is currently limited to pre-orders only.  Please order in our online store, by 10:00 a.m. Friday, for Saturday pickup.  You may also pre-order for Silver Spring, but you don't have to, since that market is still open.  The Old Town Alexandria market will return to a regular market format on May 30th.  We will not be accepting pre-orders, until we find out if the city will allow us enough space to bring individual coolers for orders.  We are not able to take pre-payments, but will accept check, cash or credit at the booth. Thank you for supporting our family farm, and stay well!

Fearless or Fearful?

Posted 4/1/2020 7:57am by Kinley Coulter.

Perhaps you have been struck by the powerful message of the ‘Fearless Girl’ statue (by Arturo DiModica) on Wall Street in, NYC...   

 

The picture, below, of my granddaughter, reminded me of what fearlessness looks like in the face of an intimidating set of circumstances...
 
 
In contrast, my son’s Border Collie found her way into a pen of young dairy cattle where she didn't belong… generating some amusing and timely images of 'failing courage' when  'stout determination' was what was called for:
 
She started with a brave face...

 

Then, trouble multiplied like a virus…

 

 

By this point, it was too late to ‘flatten the curve’… 

 

Maybe we AND our Border Collie can take a lesson from the two ‘Fearless Girls’ pictured at the top of this blog post...  :)

We wish you a spirit of stout determination as we face an uncertain future.
