Farm Happenings for February 22, 2020

Posted on February 20th, 2020 by Janet Aardema

Winter continues and the eating is still good! 

On the farm...Seeding for this season is continuing in earnest and our staffing numbers increase gradually over the next month. The greenhouse is already officially very full, and thus our rearranging and re-prioritizing has already begun. It's a constant shuffle of trays into and out of the germination chamber, on and off heat mats, and gradually out of the greenhouse to be planted in one of our hoophouses this time of year.  If you don't pick up your share here at our farm, we hope you can find a time this spring to visit and see all the abundant growth that provides food for you. 

Our new Broadfork Farm tote bags are available for purchase in the Extras section. They are made of hemp, have straps of just the right length, and have an internal pocket for a wallet/shopping list/phone. We really like them and are glad to be able to offer them to you!
