Posted on January 27th, 2021 by Diane Riehm

Pinto Gold potatoes are delicious yellow flesh potatoes. They're creamy smooth and have a buttery flavor. 

GO AHEAD AND TRY these specialty spuds that we grow. They are EXCELLENT ROASTED and can also be used for boiling, pan frying, baking or use in salads. 

These Gourmet potatoes have an outstanding flavor and colorful yellowish skin with splashes of red. 

The size is small and ranges from oval to fingerling shape. 

Any guesses on how many Cords OF WOOD each year it takes Farmers Phil and John to heat greenhouse #2 for our young seedlings? 

6 cords!!! Most of it is used in about one month's time. 

As you can see, it's a family adventure gathering all this wood from the dead trees on our farm! 


  • Seeded tomatoes the week of Christmas (Staying toasty at a friend's greenhouse until February). 
  • January - Seeded a few other things (Staying toasty at a friend's greenhouse until February). 
  • Mid-February - Insure that our Seeding Greenhouses #1 & #2 are nice and toasty at a minimum of 60 degrees. A huge amount of various seeds are sown to ensuring that we have small plants ready for the field in late-March. 
  • Early March - Transplant the first of four planting of tomato into greenhouses #3-#7. 
  • Late March to September - Transplant and direct seed in the field. 
  • May to June - Tomatoes in the greenhouses continue to grow. Several field planting have already happened. 

STILL AVAILABLE are some of the BEEF packages. 

As you know, our steers are raised sustainably on our small family farm by us. 

Don't forget to check them out on the "extra list" and grab them before they are GONE! 

RESCHEDULE YOUR "HOLDS" before time runs out. 


Did you place your share on hold over the holidays or any other week this Fall/Winter season? 

SNAG THESE GOODIES UP NOW by "Rescheduling" for the last week of your season. 

After you "RESCHEDULE", you're in luck since you'll have plenty on hand for the rest of this winter.
