Tehachapi is under snow and it’s raining here in Rancho Cucamonga. It’s kind of a dreary day. That’s a sharp contrast to how hot a year it was for us at Weiser Family Farms. As is everything in life, it was a mixed bag. On the whole, however, it was tremendous. Heck, I would rather pridefully recall how fantastic our melon crop was received this summer versus wonder what might have been had the birds not feasted on our parsnip crop (they’re coming...probably even before we get a Farm Bill).
This year, we had some great events like our late August’s hosting of a Alex’s Lemonade fundraiser at our Tehachapi ranch last August. Chefs Suzanne Goin, Neal Fraser and Paul Kahan all donated their time to raise money for Alex's Lemonade. A great cause that has our unwavering support. We also had our moments of loss, particularly the sad passing our our good friend, Dennis St. John. Dennis’ cheerfulness and helpful nature is missed tremendously.
All those individual moments that made up one crazy trip around the sun. We were fortunate to have so many wonderful friends and customers share the trip with us. Thanks for the pleasure of your company! Hey, the more the merrier so tell your friends about us. Tell them to check us out at weiserfamilyfarms.com, follow us on twitter (@weiserfarms), or like us on Facebook. There, I blew the mood with a bunch of crass commercialism. Sorry.
As for 2013? AllI can say is, as the great Ralph Lawler says, “Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!” A happy and prosperous new year to everyone!
