Why Solstice Acre?
I thought I'd share why we have named our endeavor, Solstice Acre Breads. For one thing, we name all of our efforts for the solstice. Our mini farm is Solstice Acre Farm, and all of our imagined ventures are named for it too (Solstice Sounds, Solstice Acre Honey, Solstice Fibers).
The solstice is special to our family. Blake and I started dating around the Winter Solstice in 1999. We got married on the Summer Solstice in 2004. Then Liam was born on the same day four years later. Everett also was expected on the same date, but blessed us with his presence a week earlier two years later.
Of course, most of this was coincidental, but we like the concept of the changing season, the promise of a new day. One of my favorite things about this time of year, when we till and plant our gardens, is the hope that we sow with each seed of a great harvest and great meals with family and friends. This is what our Solstice Acre means to us.
