Rain, Rain, and More Rain... (9-13-20)

Posted on September 13th, 2020
Dear CSA, Are you all staying dry? Down here in Williamsport, we have been absolutely pounded with rain this weekend, causing severe flooding in many areas of the farm and gardens. In just 24 hours we got over 8 inches of rain, and as I sit here writing it is still raining steadily! Needless to say,... read more »

Welcome to a new fall/winter season!

Posted on August 30th, 2020
Hello dear CSA members! It's hard to believe that once again it is already the start of a new farming season. We have had a lovely summer season, and we are so thankful for our wonderful family and interns that have put in so many hours of hard work to bring you the best produce possible. This season... read more »

Final Delivery Summer '20

Posted on August 23rd, 2020
We have come to the final week of our summer CSA season! We say good bye to some of our favorite summer crops (like corn). We also say goodbye to some fine young interns (3 leave and 2 stay for a couple more months). Goodbyes are never easy, but every ending signals a new beginning. Next week we will... read more »

A Full Day!

Posted on August 16th, 2020
This morning dawned cool and crisp.  I had one thing on my mind, the Smith family was coming to help us weed the blueberries!  Earlier this summer we bartered tomatoes for a day of weeding. You see we seem to have a repeating challenge with our blueberry patch and by the end of the summer they... read more »

Mornings on the Farm

Posted on August 9th, 2020
Early morning on the farm is one of our favorite times of day.  Its cool, its quiet (although the birds sing so loudly in the morning).  It is a common site to see our farm family perched on chairs scattered around the farm enjoying a few quiet moments before the hustle and bustle of the day... read more »

First Week of August (August 4, 2020)

Posted on August 2nd, 2020
August has arrived!  Do you know what that means, besides that it's HOT? We are in the last month of the Spring/Summer CSA, which is hard to believe but true.  Harder to believe is that fact that we are also in the last month of our 6 month internship! So, we are both rejoicing and mourning. ... read more »

Sonlight Meadow Farm (7/26/20)

Posted on July 26th, 2020
We had a great weekend visiting Sonlight Meadow Farm in Iron City, TN.  The Chiljian family have a very inspiring small operation.  Their ingenuity and creativity were a real inspiration to us.  We are standing in front of their sweet potato patch which we rescued from the weeds - many... read more »

Farm Happenings for July 21, 2020

Posted on July 19th, 2020
The summer heat is on and we just want to retreat to the comforts of air-conditioning. But, as farmers this just isn’t an option.  If we didn’t get out there in this heat you would have nothing to eat, but lest you feel sorry for us let me say that we could it not only a privilege but... read more »

Flash Flood (July 12, 2020)

Posted on July 12th, 2020
“Caleb, Caleb, wake up, I need you to get up quick!” I wondered if I was dreaming; but, the alarm in my Dad’s voice made me realize it wasn’t a dream.  “Wake up, we’ve had a flash flood and I’m afraid the pump has washed away.”  Fully... read more »
