Farm Happenings for October 11, 2022

Posted on October 7th, 2022 by John Zilnicki

Well we got the rain we were looking for this summer this past weekend and week.  It has been a while since we had 5 consecutive gloomy days.  Yes we picked up more rain then we would like but, I think the big man upstairs wanted us farmers to have a little more family time.  It was greatly needed and I am grateful for it!

Big week on the farm!!  Cows have finally arrived!  We are extremely excited about adding a cattle portion to our business and continuing our quest for food sovereignty and true food security.  We haven't had cows on the farm in 35 years but I really see this being the beginning of a major transition and a major positive component to building up our soils, and crop rotations.  

This dream of cows has been 5 years in the making and it is finally coming true.  

Get out and enjoy this beautiful this weekend! 

P.S.  Riverhead has is Country Fair this Sunday down by the Peconic river and main street.  I have many great memories as a kid going and entering painted pumpkins and vegetables.  Defiantly worth checking out.

Your farmer,
