Getting Local

This nice story about us was on the local news last night.  My attempts to embed the video failed.  But this link will take you there.

The event went well. Winners will be announced on Monday.

    Bill, celebrities now, huh. That was a very nice news clip about your farm. I could almost smell the delicious aroma coming from the Stufato Di Capra. I’m still wishing you the best for winning the five grand. I think a green house would be a great addition to the farm.

    Have a great day in the fall garden.

    And now you get to wait, with bated breath, for the results on Monday. Great clip and I loved the accent of the woman who said she had never had goat before, but that she liked it! If you don’t win the $5,000, you’ll have won in another way – the clip said that White Flint may be one of the university’s permanent vendors. Great news!!

      We’ve gotten a lot of positive publicity (front page of the local paper today too) and were able to improve our relationship to the school. We’re realistic about the competition but you’re right about it being a win either way.

      That accent is our accent here. I went to college with it but had a lot of it ridiculed out of me before too long. These days I lapse back into it fairly often. 🙂

      We try to do enough things to leave plenty of room for the failures we know we’re going to have. We believe in the principle of diversification, but we also do it for practical reasons.

      That would definitely be an advantage of growing things indoors. We need the greenhouse mostly for starting transplants, so it won’t keep us safe from deer for the whole season. Still would be nice to have.

    “goat” in Kenya is “mbuzi” – I have eaten there.

      Goat is the most popular meat in the world. We’re not about promoting eating goat. It just happened to be what we had available for this event. As you can see from the video it was pretty well received.

  6. Nice video clip! I see you’re the strong silent type, lol. Definitely some good PR, and good luck! Hope you win the grant, so you can get your greenhouse.

      Cherie hates public speaking and being in the spotlight, things that come easily to me. She didn’t want to do it but I insisted she be our voice on this since this whole project was handled by her. She discovered the opportunity, she did the research and she wrote the grant application. So for a change I sat by quietly and let her do the talking. 🙂

    Hi Bill. It’s a lovely video. It looks like your produce was a big hit at the university. Good luck with the vote. I hope you win it and get that greenhouse.

      Thanks. They did a nice job with the video I thought. The other finalists all have worthy projects so we won’t feel too bad if we don’t win. Although I have to admit that having them pay for a greenhouse sounds pretty good to me. 🙂

  8. How cool is that?!?! Great video – you two are doing such an amazing job. I agree with Jeff that this is already a win for you, but I do hope you get the grant for your greenhouse. My fingers are crossed.
