A New Season Begins

Greetings McCauley Farm Community,

My name is Deidre Saddoris and I’d like to take a moment to share my wonder and gratitude at joining the caretakers of this amazing little piece of earth.

As the new Office Manager, I invite you to join me as we honor the talented woman who has fearlessly reigned at the helm for the past year.  Many of you have had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Lara Barber through the CSA, Farm Dinners, or Family Day and understand that these cowgirl boots will be impossible to fill. In my short time here, I’ve come to understand that her grace and enthusiasm are a part of what makes this place magical and we wish her the very best on her next endeavor.

Next I’d like to thank everyone who has been so welcoming here. On my very first day as part of the McCauley Farm Family, we had a special visitor just outside the office. Eagle represents a state of grace achieved through hard work, understanding, and a completion of the tests of initiation which results in the taking of one’s personal power. What an auspicious way to begin my new roll here on the farm.

I’m truly thrilled to be able to bring my knapsack of administrative skills to support the talented crew here. A  fourth generation Colorado gardener and rancher’s daughter, I’ve spent the past 15 years in Boulder County raising a family on our own little urban homestead. As certified herbalist, I’m excited to with the diversity of healing plants grown in this beautiful space. As a mother, I cherish the opportunity to intimately know the source of my vegetables, eggs, and to gain a greater understanding of the organic, biodynamic, and sustainable practices utilized here. As a knitting fanatic, I’m eager to learn how to take alpaca fiber from sheering to lovely yarn (I’m looking at you, Bruno & Tiger).

I count my blessings each day as I arrive on the farm. I’m already working on developing a spicier palate to truly appreciate the full range of pepper products especially the phenomenal Sriracha fermenting nearby. I am truly grateful each day as I pull down our long driveway that this is where I get to spend my days and am looking forward to meeting more of our community and assisting you in experiencing the spirit of McCauley Family Farm.  We invite you to come see Spring emerging on the Farm and meet the dozens of baby lambs and other creatures returning with the sunlight.

Be well.
