Hello friends, we are still recovering from a busy fourth of July week. Its the peak of the year for us in a lot of ways....peak work, peak heat, peak of trying to fit in some fun between all the business. Its been interesting to see what the Heat after all the rain is doing to some crops. Last season this time we were harvesting carrots and beets and moving into the green beans and sweet corn. The carrots are a bust! But we do have some Loose beets to offer this week. Looks like Sweet corn and beans are still recovering from the wet, and looks like they may be in production soon, just a bit late! Peppers and Eggplant look on track for later in the month. Onward we go!

About the farm
We are a seventh generation family farm, raising certified organic vegetables for CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and Farmers Markets. We also raise pastured chicken, 100% grassfed beef and offer pastured pork. We raise food with the intention of taking care of the land: growing healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy animals, and healthy people. Since we are a seventh generation family farm, caring for the land and soil for our children and the next seven generations is at the forefront of our farming practices. We nourish the soil with compost from our farm, and other natural ways to bring nutrients and minerals back to the land to improve the health of the soil, land and crops. We work to maintain a balanced, healthy soil to help grow healthy plants and food. We see our farm as part of a larger community-- a network of people who are interdependent with each other. We grow healthy food for our family, friends and community.Go to farm profile
