Late November and early December aren’t what most people would call the prettiest season on the farm. Unless there’s a snowstorm that sticks around for few days, the landscape is pretty drab. Dull. Brown, brown, brown.
During these busy holiday shopping weeks in the Beekman 1802 Mercantile, we almost never see the farm in daylight. We head down to the warehouse before the sun comes up, and come home long after it goes down. And while we think we might not be missing much, we are.
Because just like in life, when things around you seems colorless and boring, you really just need to look a little more closely. We recently took a walk around the farm and discovered a lot more brilliance than we could see from inside the windows.
