Meat Share Updates!

Posted on October 1st, 2023
We are going to begin getting some beef from Powers Farm in Townshend DE. Their beef is grass fed, dry aged, and is truly premium local beef! You'll see some prices go up on the beef end because of this, but we believe that it is worth it! Look out for Powers Farm beef on the next meat share.  read more »

Cover Crops!

Posted on September 23rd, 2023
The oats & peas cover crop is in and we're excited to see what happens with it this fall. Fingers crossed that the rain doesn't wash it out but helps it germinate nicely.  The mix of oats and peas should grow enough this fall to give the ground a good cover, as well as shade out winter ann1 read more »

Operation Thistle Eradication

Posted on August 27th, 2023
The beets in the picture this week are grown in a field full of thistle. In fact, much of our growing space is covered in Canadian Thistle at this point.

Welcome back!

The Summer CSA resumes this week! We hope you had as lovely a CSA break as we did here.
