I knew that I wanted something simple, not too specific (so that I would feel tied to growing a specific crop), and easy to pronounce and spell (for check writing purposes). I also wanted something unique (to the extent that it doesn't show up on the first few pages of google as being the name of another farm.
And so K and I spent the past two days bouncing ideas off one another. Pretty much everything we did, ate, and heard inspired the name of a farm (Nacho Farm was my personal favorite for a while). We came up with hundreds of (mostly humorous) options. And then finally one felt right.
Full Heart Farm.
At first I thought it may be a little too...mushy...but I actually think it holds our sentiment quite well. The name is inspired by one of our favorite TV shows, Friday Night Lights: "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." We're pursuing this property with full hearts. We know that starting a farm together, despite the numerous challenges, will be a wonderful way for us to build a family and a community.
Full Hearts. Full Minds. Full Bellies.
Life doesn't get more simple than that.
