Farm Happenings at Where the Redfearn Grows Natural Farm

Mid May and we've already been through a week of summer!

Posted on May 14th, 2022
There's no two ways about it.  This past week was a rough one for us.  The crew was worn out from the sudden onset of heat.  It was dirty and sweaty like a dirty sweaty week in August, but it was spring, at least it was supposed to be.  We made it through and we're looking forward... read more »

Going to be a HOT one!

Posted on May 6th, 2022
We're all experiencing Hot Flashes If you haven't seen the forecast, get ready for an early taste of summer!  An entire week in the 90's in early May after an exceptionally cool spring isn't exactly what the farmer ordered, but we'll roll with it.   We are a bit concerned what the sudden... read more »

CSA Week 2 around the corner

Posted on April 30th, 2022
Personal Farm Connection This past week, it was great to see the faces of so many familiar friends and to meet some new ones too!  For the winter season, we pack boxes for CSA members but since we leave them behind, each week to be picked up later, we don't get a chance to see you.  (Brookside... read more »

Ready or not, the first week of the summer CSA is here!  Thanks so much for joining us this season!  We have so much great stuff planned and we're excited to get started.

Final Winter CSA

Posted on April 16th, 2022
First off, thank you!  Thank you for literally keeping the lights on and the heat on at the farm all winter long.  You've experienced the changing of the seasons with us from the extreme bounty of early winter (Remember all that ginger and all those peppers) to the more limited crop selection... read more »

Second to Last Winter CSA shares

Posted on April 9th, 2022
It's hard to believe but the winter CSA is almost at an end.  The final CSA deliveries will be April 21 and 22nd, so there will be one more share after this coming share.  We hope you've enjoyed the off-season locally grown food.  We really appreciate you being part of keeping the farm... read more »

COOL Spring!

Posted on April 2nd, 2022
Hope you're enjoying the cool spring thus far.  It got down to 21 degrees the night before last at the farm, which made us a little nervous.  We tried to cover what we could and prayed the crops would survive.  It looks like they did ok, but the cool and wet certainly slows things down... read more »

4th from last Winter CSA pickup 3/31

Posted on March 26th, 2022
We have 4 remaining CSA pickups including this week's share before the end of the winter season.  There is an end in sight.  Still cool weather but that's fine with us for spring.  We're weighing our options about outdoor plantings of broccolini, kale, chard, lettuce, beets, cool season... read more »

It's Official: Spring is here!

Posted on March 19th, 2022
EQUINOX Tomorrow (March 20th) is the spring equinox; the day where the day and night are 12 hours in length (At the equator that is.  We got there a couple days ago).  Days are also lengthening at the most rapid rate (the next day daylight length will be 2 minutes and 33 seconds longer than... read more »
