We are finally at the point where we can breath for a minute (sort of)...so we're working with one of our awesome customers about an official logo for 47 Daisies to use on business cards, bumper stickers, etc.....which made us go back to the discussion of what we were going to use as our slogan. This is WAY more difficult than you would think!! We know our farm..and we know what we do..but putting all of that into an abbreviated sentence...and keeping it interesting..is VERY difficult!!
We originally wanted to use "You are what you eat"..because, well..you are. And we feel that this really hits home in our field of work. With more thought and discussion, we decided that we wanted something that would somewhat tell people that were unfamiliar with our farm what we do. For instance, if someone saw a bumper sticker with "You are what you eat", it could be anything from a restaurant to a...well...I don't really know, but you get the point. We want people to look at our "merchandise" and know what we do.
So we started talking and not much was happening. I suggested "We grow happy vegetables" and Dylan didn't like it. I also suggested "Keeping Ruston alive since 2009" and Dylan really didn't like that one. Then there was "Our food won't kill you" and "Nothing but vegetables"..all of which did not really portray what we are attempting to do in this community.
A few nights ago we were discussing an email conversation we had with a food writer in Shreveport regarding an upcoming article, and Dylan was expressing to me why we farm. He said, "We farm with a conscience...", and that was it.
So, our official slogan will be "Farming with a conscience". We believe in this 100 percent. We feel very good about what we're offering to the community, and feel that we owe it to our customers to give them exactly what we advertise, which is 100% chemical free, delicious vegetables.
Hopefully, everything that we are..and that we do..comes across in this slogan. We are excited to see the logo and will share it with you in the months to come!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
