Farm Happenings for June 6, 2020

Posted on May 31st, 2020
Counting is an undervalued skill.  It’s 50% (that’s 50 of 100) of my job I think.  Counting bunches, counting boxes, counting bags, counting rubber bands, counting heads….that’s what I do around here.  Count things.  I do so much counting that I can’t... read more »

Farm Happenings for May 26, 2020: lackadaisical worry

Posted on May 21st, 2020
Mallory asked me yesterday if I was worried about this extended wet weather period.  Well, of course I am, but that worry looks very lackadaisical.  Preparing for too much rain looks a lot different than preparing for a late freeze.  The predicted late freeze had us scrambling: driving... read more »

Welcome to the virtual farm stand!  We've decided to keep the store open until 11:59 pm on Wednesday to give you a little bit more time.  We are going to be shorthanded in the coming weeks, so we need to have a complete harvest list by Thursday morning.  Thanks! read more »

Hi y'all! Welcome to the virtual farm stand/pre-order system!  This doesn't operate like a farm store that you might be used to (square store).  I know most of you are experts at this, but there are several steps you have to take before you get to the customization screen.  That's the... read more »

Hi y'all! We made it through the hard freeze!  We still have a day or two of potential frost, but we made it through the big whammy.  We managed to create enough of an inversion blanket with our smokey fire to keep the temperatures at the fields the same as 100 feet up at our house. ... read more »
