Farm Happenings for August 28, 2019

Posted on August 23rd, 2019
Our sunflowers are forming blossom heads, so we should be seeing the field in full bloom in the next 7-10 days. When that happens if anyone wants to come out to do photos beside the field, or to get some sunflowers, just send us a text or email and we will try to set up some times to come out to the... read more »

Sunflowers on the way!

Posted on August 16th, 2019
Our field of sunflowers is getting ready to bloom, we are about two weeks away from blossoms opening up. Once they do we will shoot a post out on socials and you can come on by to take a photo. Sadly they weren't ready for Open Farm Days on the weekend. We have lots of room in our egg CSA, so if you... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 14, 2019

Posted on August 9th, 2019
We finally bit the bullet and bought a tractor! While we love our pair of BCS machines (a 749 and 853) we finally had to admit that we were punishing them a bit too hard when we went to do things like cut and rake hay in our chest deep pastures. Plus the idea of prepping 4 acres for shelterbelts going... read more »

Eggs, Eggs, EGGS!

Posted on August 1st, 2019
We have eggs. So many eggs! We have opened up our egg share add-ons, so you can get them each week with your basket of veggies. Or if you know someone who only wants eggs you can point them our way and they can now sign up for just eggs. We are rapidly closing in on full production (95+ eggs a day!)... read more »

These are pullet eggs, for the first week to ten days the young layers have a variety of egg sizes, and then they sort things out. By the time they are a month into laying they are pretty... read more »

A little bit of warm...

Posted on July 18th, 2019
Looks like summer is finally showing up!Things are starting to really jump now that there is some sun and some heat coming on, though our warm lovers (beans, squash, melons, flowers) are behind schedule. At least they are looking a lot happier right now! We just want to remind everyone that we are participating... read more »

Eggs are on the way!

Posted on July 11th, 2019
We are getting really close to having an abundance of eggs once more. Our new (and much larger) laying flock is starting to show signs of getting ready to lay. They are moody like teenagers, their combs and wattles are growing and going red, and they are making the laying song at various times of the... read more »

So Much Rain!

Posted on July 4th, 2019
This is such a wet spring (now summer)!We will be greens heavy for the next few weeks until we get some sun and some heat for the other crops to get growing. For those new to a CSA this is pretty normal for the start of the program, but this year our other crops are further behind than we would like... read more »
