HIGH WINDS WILL CLOSE THE FARM MARKET BUT YOU CAN STILL GET YOUR FOOD !

by

We are experiencing hurricane velocity winds (sic), wind bursts of over 100 mph, and much more frequently this year than the past few, but I’ve seen it much worse.  This year a 300 lb.plus,  glass door refridgerator has been move-upright on its base- six feet along the market floorseveral times.  In 2002 the market’s entire combined steel gazebo apparatus, 16′ x 40′, each of the 12 footings weighted down with over 60 lbs. of concrete each, was picked up over ten feet in the air by the winds and thrown over the top of the Farm’s main gate ! Fortunately the market, with its moveable pieces, representing the coming and going of the seasons, is repaired without a great deal of work.

The Winds of Malibu ; anytime late Fall through Winter and early Spring, are truely awe inspiring. Having been here and delt with this reality for many years we’ve adopted an almost joyous relationship the wind. They will have their say ; throughout the area they will rip shingles from roofs, destroy highway signs, and topple even extremely large eucalyptus trees. But over all  they add positive energy to the fields and orchards, stripping the browning leaves of Fall and Winter.
