Pop-Up Week #24 - Order

Posted on October 27th, 2022
We're a little late getting our online Farm Stand open this week, but we'll make up for it by leaving it open longer -- until Tuesday at noon. Also, we're lowering our minimum order value to $15 as we have less variety to offer now that the cold temps have finally found us. But, we do still have lo1 read more »

Pop-Up Week #24 - Pick Up

Posted on October 22nd, 2022
REMEMBER! If your pick up is in Libby, it's FRIDAY 3:30-5 at the Antler's parking lot! We're finishing up the season in the same way we typically begin -- moving compost around. Compost is an important part of our farm, especially to new blocks that we're bringing into production. Our soil is very1 read more »

Deconstructing Dublin! Ok, that's an understandably confusing statement...we've called our new East field Ireland because it was first planted this year with mostly potatoes and onions. So when we needed a name to distinguish our tunnel over there from our other similar one, we naturally chose Dubl1 read more »

Announcement: The Libby pick up site tomorrow will be at our Pop-Up Farm Stand in the 4Bs/Antler's parking lot, from 3-6! On farm pick up on Friday will be the same, 2-5.  Whew!

The big change for the farm this week is that the Farmers Market is over, so our weekly schedule will change a bit and there will be a pretty marked slow down in our farm tasks. A good thing too, and we'll be starting with tasks that we haven't done in quite a while: bed clean up, spreading compost1 read more »

There's a lot going on in this picture - I mean, even besides the carrot posing going on by Ethan and Hans in the front! We are harvesting bulk carrots here, and it's a whole crew activity and it takes a LONG time. So the more people working together the better. We're still less than half way done1 read more »

It's usually not a problem having the 'low spot' at the farmers market, the customers tend to roll downhill lol. But it sure became apparent yesterday that we were definitely holders of that particular spot topographically when so much of the rain started to build a lake right in our pick up tent!1 read more »

The season's are definitely changing, but you might be surprised at our main indicator for the shift to fall. It's my (Bonnie's) behavior in the kitchen! Seriously, when I get the inclination to spend time doing all of the prep work, reading and rereading the recipe (Yes, I'm one of those!), and th1 read more »

A short and sweet update on the farm today since we're STILL at it on Friday night preparing for the Harvest Festival tomorrow (at Riverfront Park 12-6 if you're so inclined). We're about ready and will have a respectable showing at the festival with a full display of storage crops like potatoes, o1 read more »
