For us, having visitors on our farm is a double-edged sword. We love to have people come learn about ecological farming by seeing what we do.  It’s exciting when people are inspired to go pesticide-free in their own gardens or keep their own flock of egg-laying chickens, or when they’re wowed by how great our tomatoes and peppers and winter squash look in September. On the other hand, visitors can take a lot of time and energy, particularly on weekends, when we’re tired at the height of the season and are trying to get everything ready for three farmers markets. We simply don’t have the time or energy to thoroughly answer every eager customer’s questions.
