Posted on October 27th, 2020
-- Just a reminder that this is the final week of Mackinac Island/St. Ignace deliveries. Thanks again for joining us this season! -- Snow on the ground this morning? Nothing quite like it to add a sense of urgency to everything we're doing around here.  With some 20's in the forecast at night,... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 13, 2020

Posted on October 11th, 2020
Well, that was a much nicer week than the one before it!  Things are growing nicely in the hoophouses with all the sunshine we've had this past week, which is a plus given the otherwise cool fall we've had. For us, November 3rd is more than the presidential election, it's also the day we cross... read more »

Farm Happening for the Week of October 5th

Posted on October 4th, 2020
Anyone else tired of the rain yet? That seemed to be the overarching theme this past week - even on the days it wasn't supposed to. To say we're ready for some sunshine (or at least dry weather) is an understatement. Rainy and 50 is not the recipe for the most enjoyable days around here, but we get... read more »

Farm Happenings for September 29, 2020

Posted on September 27th, 2020
Well, September sure disappeared quickly! It's no huge surprise, though; it's normally one of our busier months, between lots of harvesting and prepping for fall planting. We had a busy week of cleaning up hoophouses and fields that aren't going to be used for the rest of the season. That means this... read more »

Farm Happenings for Week of September 22, 2020

Posted on September 20th, 2020
Well, that's a week we're glad is over! Aside from the usual work of the week we had a looming threat of freezing weather towards the end of the week - about three weeks before usual. We knew it was coming all week. On Wednesday, they forecasted a low of 42; we got to 36. On Thursday, they forecasted... read more »

Farm Happenings for Week of September 15, 2020

Posted on September 13th, 2020
Well, another busy week accomplished around the farm! While we're still spending the bulk of our time harvesting the usual weekly list, we managed to harvest all of the winter squash and get it out of the fields before the rain over the weekend. We also have managed to keep on a decent schedule for clearing... read more »

Farm Happening for the Week of September 7th

Posted on September 6th, 2020
Forty four degrees this morning? It looks like fall is officially winning the season battle; at least for now. While it does mean summer may be leaving, it also means that fall is on it's way and along with the cooler temperatures and changing leaves, our crop variety, too, will be changing. Onions are... read more »

Farm Happening for the week of August 31st, 2020

Posted on August 30th, 2020
We've reached the last few days of August and it's hard to believe September is here already! As Brendan mentioned last week, fall is definitely in the air. From the change in weather this past weekend to harvesting all of the potatoes, it is coming and it is coming quickly. For me, I think this is the... read more »
