The Barn Swallow
Many have asked about our business name. So here is the scoop. We honestly had a hard time coming up with a name that fit. After weeks of deliberation back in 2018, we noticed our barn swallows swooping above the garden to feed. Since we provide building habitat for the swallows, it seemed natural to combine the name into one. It would exemplify something so strong, consistent, resilient in our lives and resemble female farmers and business owners of our time.
However, what we have come to know as common is becoming less common regionally, nationally and globally. Farmsteads with historical buildings are fading from the landscape, small family farms are struggling to survive and many of our wildlife and pollinator populations continue to be negatively affected by pollution and loss of habitat. Something so common is slowly becoming less of the norm in real time in less than a lifetime.
Farming flowers and produce has only made us more aware that what we do matters, not only to our human friends but also to the land, the wildlife and water resources.
