December 21st marks the shortest day and longest night of the year, the first day of winter and that our days are now getting more sun light.
Last summer was full of hot, grueling work. Winter is time to grow your skin back, to heal, to get your back lengthened out again, rejuvenate your organs and joints with bone broth soup, root veggies and squash. We take this time to recognize with pride the toll our bodies take during the farming season, by prioritizing comfort and healing in this season. We are thankful to have a sauna here on the farm (a great addition for winter sanity). There is a Danish tradition of hygge to get through long dark winters with gratitude and relaxation. It involves nourishing warmth, light, candles, fire, sauna, gathering with good food and drink, cross country skiing, telling stories - quality coziness.
