Your support counts!

Each August I take a deep breath and wonder whether or not our wonderful Farm Share/CSA members have enjoyed their experience with our farm enough to sign up again next season. In all honesty, I reflect on this many times during the season, but August marks the start of some predicting and number crunching... read more »

Fingers Crossed

Posted on August 22nd, 2019

So its likely that your tomatoes will have some tops that need to be cut off.... read more »
