We have a new logo! After 3 seasons of growing on the Eastern Shore of Maryland we figured it was time for a little revamp. We also decided it was time that Quarter Acre EATS got their own logo. For this revamp challenge we reached out to our long time graphic designer of choice, Solid Art Collective. This is actually their 3rd Quarter Acre Farm logo, they created our very first logo in 2010.
Back then we grew on leased land that had a line of poplar trees along the edge of the field and we used to grow a lot of carrots. So this logo was a perfect fit. Then in 2014 the farm had moved to different land and grown a bit bigger, so I wanted to refresh the logo and they created this brilliant logo which most people have become familiar with.
Well a lot has changed since 2014, most importantly we don’t live in California anymore and we no longer grow carrots. Over the years we have really become known for our delicious cherry tomatoes so we wanted them to take center stage in our new farm logo.
Then we have Quarter Acre Farm EATS which creates many delicious items with our farm grown produce, like pico de gallo. But anyone who has had the chance to taste our prepared food items knows that our guacamole steals the show. So even though we don’t grow avocados they are near and dear to our hearts and taste buds.
Speaking of cherry tomatoes, we are still harvesting them thanks to a mild and dry October. My goal is always to have tomatoes from the field until Halloween but many years it doesn’t work out. After such a hot and humid summer I was crossing my fingers hoping to just make it until the end of September. The summer weather was so hard on many of the tomato varieties that they just withered away once September rolled around. But thanks to a second planting of cherry tomatoes and the glorious fall weather we have been having, the harvesting continues until the frost comes which could be any day or sometime around Thanksgiving.
With our logo update we also decided to update our web and email addresses. Don’t worry the old ones will still work but now we have these lovely shorter ones www.quarter-acre.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
