AFLO Masterpieces is back! This week, we're recreating Winslow Homer again with our Grower, Ethan. While we didn't have a scythe on hand, we did have a w**d whacker--close enough.

We have to ask: what is Ethan contemplating? Perhaps it's the wisdom that comes after a hard day's work on the farm? Or the pride one develops when given the chance to perform meaningful work?

Original: Song of the Lark by Winslow Homer

Recreation: Song of the W**d Whacker by Ethan Miller

Thank you to Ms. Barcenas’ class from Woodgrove High School, who came out a few days ago to start harvesting our potatoes. Kylie really rocked (literally) the broad fork to loosen the soul and dig those suckers up. Thanks for your support, Loudoun County Public Schools!

What do we do when it rains? We play telephone Pictionary and hope that the rain stops (which it didn’t, so we called it an early day today at AFLO South, where the greenhouse and indoor facilities are smaller than at AFLO North). No worries! They worked their butts off yesterday on CSA day.

At AFLO, we strongly believe in a good work ethic and try to impart that to our Growers. We also believe in having a little fun and giving our Growers a new kind of challenge. For this challenge, we asked them to help us recreate some famous pastoral works of art.

We call these “AFLO Masterpieces”.

And like many things we do, it’s a little less ordinary. But to us, it’s extraordinary. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did. We will be posting new images each week and updating the blog on our website.
