Posted on January 17th, 2022
Winter has arrived in force this week here at the farm! Sadly this is also the time of year when lettuce production really declines for us. We should have enough for everyone to get at least a regular sized bag this week, but have to pull back from offering the XL bags for now. The biggest cause is... read more »

No deliveries this week but orders are available for farm pickup on Friday afternoon (3pm - 7pm) and market pickup this weekend!  Despite the frozen conditions outside, we are busy prepping for the coming season.  Although the pace on the farm is slower right now, there is a lot of planning... read more »

We finally have a little snow on the ground for our first winter shares!  Despite the restrictions and illnesses going around, we really hope everyone had a chance to relax and enjoy the holidays.  Thank you to all who are joining us this winter for our bi-weekly shares from now until April.... read more »

Happy Monday! Here at the farm, we are feeling the Christmas spirit... even though its looking like a green holiday season this year.

We continue to plant every week despite the fact that we are nearly at the shortest day of the year!  We are working on getting new transplants ready for replacing lettuce in our greenhouse in January.  We are also deep into planning for next year which includes putting together our big seed... read more »

 We are onto some of our final big jobs of the fall which include moving one of our hoophouses over top of our last leek crop.  These leek will be dug all winter and the hoophouse keeps the soil from freezing solid.  Then after the leek are harvested, we will be able to plant an extra... read more »

Believe it or not, our lettuce will be coming from the field this week!  This is likely the last week and then we move into our unheated hoophouses for lettuce and salad mixes.  Our greenhouse crop is looking good too but we probably won't harvest in there until Christmas. But outside we've... read more »

Some early snow on the farm, but we are still pulling a lot of veggies out of the field.  For a lot of items that are a bit cold sensitive (like swiss chard and choi) this is likely the end of outdoor harvest for them this week.  But we have plenty of stuff growing strong in our greenhouse... read more »
