  We were Thyme For Ewe for the first 13 years of business.  In the beginning I grew herbs for farms and my partner raised sheep. Thyme for me, Ewe for her....you get it.  I kept the name when we split up to keep the friendship.  We are now Seasons Eatings Farm.  We're four season producers.

  Changing names was hard.  I grow very few herbs now and we've never had a ewe on this farm.   We needed something that reflects what we do now.  It took me a long time to come up with something that is ridiculously obvious!
