Today I lost my favorite girl. She got sick and my chicken mama instincts knew she wasn't well. We isolated her, tried to feed her by hand, water her. We. Did. All we had time for. Today I went to the coop and got her and swaddled her in a towel and brought her in to snuggle. We napped in my bed and then I awoke and she passed in my arms.

We love you, sweetheart. πŸ’” Held her until she went. These critters we raise, we hold so dear to us. It never gets easier.

Miss Rosa may you go down as the sweetest treat-loving, beautiful girl. Forever in my heart. She will be dearly missed.

I feel like my backyard is turning into a chicken graveyard and it breaks my soul.

Give your babies extra treats today and thank them for their spunky selves and giving spirits. We lost a good one.

We couldn't be more excited for the Bedford Collab! We see so much good coming from this space. We believe in the positive changes that this will bring to Evansville. Food access starts local. Transforming neighborhoods starts with us. When we lock arms in support of each others' dreams true vitalization occurs. It's time to solve the food access crisis in our city. Community involvement is our company's heart of bringing unity and love to our fellow neighbors.

'They're Trying to Wipe Us Off the Map.' Why Independent Farming in America Is Close to Extinction

π™π™π™š 𝙁π™ͺ𝙩π™ͺπ™§π™š 𝙀𝙛 𝙁𝙀𝙀𝙙 - 𝘼 π™ˆπ™ͺ𝙨𝙩 π™π™šπ™–π™™

"Experts say that by 2050, there will be more than 10 billion people in the world to feed, making it more important than ever to think about ways to produce and grow nutritious food, as well as diversify the food supply in a sustainable way." https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/05/200528115813.htm

We are working to improve the food supply in the Evansville, Indiana area. We know people need access to fresh, highly nutrient dense food and the best wat to get that is by supporting local farmers. Every community needs local farmers for optimal health. The produce on the grocery shelves have been subjected to more handling (so brings higher possibilities of contamination) and losing vital nutrition from the days in transit, not to mention the time it sits on the grocery shelves before it ends up in cart. Optimal health starts with local farmers. They are the pillar of a community.

Farmers love your thanks but need your business. The average wage for a farmer is $11.21/hour. This is penny on the dollar wage.
https://www.careerexplorer.com/careers/farmer/salary/

And sadly, according to Times.com, 'They're Trying to Wipe Us Off the Map.'
"Small farms, defined as those bringing in less than $350,000 a year before expenses, accounted for just a quarter of food production in 2017, down from nearly half in 1991. In the dairy industry, small farms accounted for just 10 percent of production. The disappearance of the small farm would further hasten the decline of rural America, which has been struggling to maintain an economic base for decades." Small American Farmers Are Nearing Extinction
https://time.com/5736789/small-american-farmers-debt-crisis-extinction/

What does that mean to you? More people in hospitals. More people sick. More people who are not living their best life.

Support for local farmers means supporting our nations in food access and availability in the future. πŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸ’š

A perfect storm of factors has lead to the biggest crisis for American farmers in decades.

Refund Policy

Please see our updated Refund Policy on our produce for pick-up orders made online.

We are always so excited when our customers were 'curious' enough to try out our product. Our deliciously fresh microgreens are marked good for one week from when we harvest them. We will make every attempt to reach you if you haven't picked it up in 2 days; however, for customers who have not picked up their order and have not responded to our communication, it does put us in a pickle. This oftentimes ends with product waste and a loss to our farm. Whenever an order is made, we do pull this product from our inventory and set it aside for you specifically. So please know that our new policy is setup to help cover the loss we have experienced from no-show pick-ups from online orders.

Up until today, we took the loss and refunded our customers in full. We have a new policy in effect as of today to ensure that your product will still be fresh for you to enjoy without causing us unnecessary food waste and loss.

We hope you understand our hearts and if you have any questions, please let us know.

All the Best,
-Chris & Shannon Owen at Cheshire Curiosities MicroFarm + Homestead

Refund Policy Due to the nature of our products, all orders must be picked up within 2 days from when the order is placed. All orders not picked up will be charged 50% of the order total as a disposal fee to cover packaging costs and product loss. All sales are final; however, if you experience a ne...
