January, Handled. 
Sometimes it's tough to see the bright side of things in January. Last month's credit card bills have come due, those few pounds that you may have put on over the holidays are stubbornly hanging on, and the weather is, well... predictably dismal. We are slowly but surely discovering little silver linings here on the Farm in steaming cups of fresh coffee, in hearty bowls of pasta served for lunch, and in the jovial exchanges of "Happy New Year" wishes from our year-round customers. We find them in the arrival of winter citrus, in discovery of a bottle of rich, silky red wine, or in the delight of a newly flowering house plant. January is best enjoyed (some less enthusiastic types would say handled) by those who take the time to notice the pleasures in simplicity.  A home-cooked meal, a chapter farther in a book you've been wanting to finish, or in a guilt-free 20 minute walk instead of the usual hour long run, because hey, at least you got outside today. Self-care is as much about positive thinking as it is about exercising, eating or sleeping well. So go on for moment and let your efforts be enough*.  The bills will get paid, the days will get longer, but for now, luxuriate in the slow simplicity of winter. Below, we share our silver linings with you. Keep calm and January on!

Winter Warmers
Delicious, warming red wines for the chilliest of nights.
Brian and Stephy Terrizzi are the winemaker-viticulturist couple behind the Broadside wines. “Sustainably-farmed, we harvest at lower sugars and use little to no new oak to create wines of balance and finesse that make sense on the dinner table. Sourced from sustainably farmed, SIP certified vineyards in San Luis Obispo County. The 2017 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits attractive aromas of ripe blackberry and red cherry, framed by a touch of oak. It's supple and open-knit on the palate, with a juicy core of fruit and light structuring tannins, concluding with a long finish. $17.99

La Florencia Malbec is tended organically and has plentiful red fruit aromas with delicate touches of spice and pepper. On the palate, plummy soft and ripe tannins let you enjoy a long-lasting and rich finish, roasted pork would be the perfect pairing. $14.99
Meinklang is one of Austria's most interesting organic producers. Demeter certified biodynamic, they are crafting inviting naturally styled and fresh wines from Burgenland.
The Red is a blend of Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch and Saint Laurent done with carbonic maceration, preserving all the fresh juiciness and bright red fruit flavors. Pair with pepperoni pizza, roasted mushroom risotto, spiced chicken stew with wheatberries & squash. $17.99
