Posted on October 11th, 2019
Hello. This beautiful week has been such a nice gift. I love October, and it's weeks like this that remind me why. Today was an important harvest day for us because the forecast calls for a frost over the weekend. Our low land fields tend to get hit fairly quickly by cold nights. So we spent as much... read more »

Posted on October 4th, 2019
Hello. It's Friday as I write this and the cool weather feels so good. After sweating it out the first few days of October, me and the crew are ready for the relief of Autumn days. As you can see in the picture, we spent time pulling out our entire crop of cucumbers and replanting with winter crops in... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 1, 2019 (week 17)

Hi everyone. Our late season green and wax beans are great these days. In fact, many of our summer crops have held on longer than usual this season due to the warm and dry weather we continue to experience.

Greeting, CSA members. We've had some lovely weather at the farm, and our pastured laying hens are enjoying it as well. They live in a collection of coops like the one pictured. We move the coops around to fresh grass every few days, which helps to build the fertility of the soil and also provides the... read more »

Greetings from the farm. It's Friday afternoon, and our small crew today is already beginning to prepare for the CSA on Tuesday. The beans, squash, peppers, cherry tomatoes, and heirlooms all need to be picked about every other day. So Friday often serves as the unofficial beginning of the following... read more »

First and perhaps most important: please remember that the CSA deliveries are on WEDNESDAY SEPT 4 this week (not Tuesday). Make a note in your calendars to plan accordingly.

Farm Happenings for August 27, 2019 (week 12)

Posted on August 23rd, 2019
Greetings from the farm. This week we thought we would talk just a bit about the seasonality of the CSA boxes. For some of you eating seasonally may be a new concept. Our grocery stores do a great job of offering produce year round--and hiding the seasonality of local foods--by bringing in produce from... read more »
