Pop-Up Week #1-A

Posted on September 22nd, 2021
Hi All - This is our first 'Pop-Up' Farm Stand of the season. Thus far, all of the Farm Stand boxes that we have done have been in addition to our CSA, which ended today. So, with the temps cooling and the daylight hours waning, the total number of boxes that we put out each week will also be on the... read more »

Pop-Up Week #1-B

Posted on September 17th, 2021
Finished the onions! Over 2,000 lbs of red & yellow storage onions finally cured and trimmed - it's time to stock up! We're looking forward to a great market day tomorrow and it looks like Mother Nature wants to cooperate as it's looking like 75 and sunny. Don't forget to swing by your pick up location... read more »

CSA Week #18-A

Posted on September 15th, 2021
Hi All - It's here, week #18 and the final week of the CSA season! We will likely continue to do some Farm Stand boxes for another few weeks, but it will be a far cry from the 70+ boxes that we have been packing during the main season. You know what that means, right? It's time to get into your Harvie... read more »

CSA Week #18-B

Posted on September 10th, 2021
Whew! Another busy week, and it's not done yet. Some highlights for us include our first ever delivery that was big enough to need a pallet (pic above). We dropped off a significant amount of our remaining winter squash at the Amish Farm to Market Store this week, and we're hoping to off load the rest... read more »

CSA Week #17

Posted on September 3rd, 2021
Wow - week #17 is here and that means for some of you, it's your last week of the season! Hard to believe it because the season has flown by so quickly, but our minds and muscles are definitely telling us that we're getting towards the tail end. Though we're starting to be in wrap up mode for the season,... read more »

CSA Week#16-A

Rudy and Cartman waiting out a downpour today with a load of winter squash. We pulled into the wash pack to stay dry until we could unload the harvest into the curing area. Friday was another good harvest day, we finished the onion harvest, and got another good load of potatoes and winter squash out... read more »

CSA Week #16-B

Posted on August 27th, 2021
Potatoes and onions are out of the ground, and more cover crop seed is in. Things are happening how they're supposed to, and we're going to do what we can to continue the trend! This week marked our last outdoor transplanting, and probably our last outdoor direct seeding for crops that are meant to grow... read more »

CSA Week #15-A

Posted on August 25th, 2021
You know what time it is, right?! Time to customize your boxes for week #15. So get in there and switch/swap/add to until your veggies next week are just as you'd like them. For extras, don't forget to check out farm fresh eggs from the Miller Farm, honey from Mclaury Apiaries, bread and bagels from... read more »

CSA Week #15-B

Posted on August 20th, 2021
It's been a major harvest week for us and we were really glad to have an extra hand on deck for a little bit. Bonnie's cousin Mali showed up for work while visiting, and ended up harvesting cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes and LOTS of onions - a well rounded visit for sure -- Thanks, Mali!! We have... read more »
