Picnic On The Farm

Tickets are on sale now for our second event of the summer! Join us for a picnic on the farm on Saturday, June 29th from 5-10pm. There are several ticket options available, with local food prepared by Relish Lunch & Catering, treats by Goldenrod Pastries, wine and cider by Glacial Till Vineyard, and options to BYO picnic dinner (no outside alcoholic drinks allowed).

We will have live music by Matt Cox, and the local fireworks show will be starting around 9pm!

Get your tickets on our website. We can’t wait to show you around the farm!

Field Updates

It’s been a busy week on the farm with the rain letting up a bit. We are playing catch up with the weeds and getting our plantings in the ground.

We finally got all of our field tomatoes in the ground -- this may be the latest ever! The rain was about the worst timing ever for those tomatoes, but they are in the ground and ready to get going now.

Soon we will begin putting the first plantings of our fall crops in the ground (can you believe it?!?) like cabbage, kale, broccoli and cauliflower.

We also got 3 beehives this week! These girls will help pollinate our plants and maybe share some of their honey with us this fall. We already have another beekeeper with one hive on the farm, which we love, but we are also excited to have our own bees! (pictured above, some of the girls found a bit of melted honey!)

The crew has been working extra over the weekends to keep the operation running smoothly and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work and dedication to the farm.

Enjoy the share this week!
