Farm Stand! All Organic Fresh Breads and Pastries at Midnight’s Farm Wednesday 4/17 , 9am to 2pm

Here we are, popping up like another delightful spring flower to offer your weekly worldclass island grown breads and pastries. Come by tomorrow and find your favorite treats and staples made with whole grains, island fruit, organic butter, wild leaven. We feel maybe a little over the top telling the full story of our baked goods in every email and post, and maybe you also gloss over the extra verbage. Often we can’t even get in all the details that make this food matter to us. We keep at it Read more

Barn Owl at the Market – Saturday June 2nd – 10am til 2pm

Hello lovelies, What cold, windy, dry spring weather we’ve been having. All the grain shivers in the field, waiting for the brief moments of warm sun and stillness to put on a few inches of new growth, then hunkers down when these cold winds blow, sucking their sweet moisture out of the dirt, hoping for rain. Do you think plants hope for rain? Do rain dances? Forecast? Weather, climate, change, warming, drying, unpredictable patterns, crop failure, resource scarcity, negative feedback loops… the list goes on, the inevitable outcome of a Read more

Barn Owl at the Lopez Lamb and Wool Fest- 10-3 Sat 5/13

Hello out there! We will be joining in on the Lamb, Wool, and Goat Festival tomorrow, Saturday, offering some eats while you hang out with the spinners, weavers, farmers, and shearers. We’ll have some of our scrumptious flatbreads, cinnamon rolls, and our new macaroons! We love this event for its celebration of land-based labor, artistry and craft that has such beauty and usefulness and takes time. We have an all-season appreciation for wool really. Wool, meat, and milk from sheep and goats, like bread, is tied to the land, the Read more

Winter Market in the Village – Barn Owl’s Goodies Galore – 2/18 – 10am til 2pm

Howdy doody folks, Well well well. Just sitting in a golden rainbow beam of sunshine, pouring through dark clouds, the grass’s holy sparkle calling in the birds to peck and scratch for the bugs. Asking me, why don’t you eat the bugs? Come scratch with us in the sun. The frog’s got their chorus going last night for the first time this year, I looked back and it was 1/29/16 that we sent out a bread email about the first frogs of the year. A bit later this year!
