Happy Early St. Patrick's Day!  I hope you enjoyed your box of goodies last week!  We had some 1st box hiccups last week.  Our bread delivery was late and short 6 loaves of sourdough bread.  Also, when I talk to the vendors Friday they give me a rough estimate of inventory. ... read more »

Happy early Thanksgiving!  It is my favorite holiday of the year! There is something about coming to the end of a busy farming season, getting together with family, making a feast from the bounties of our lands, and sharing a laugh with loved ones.  To the members that ordered turkeys, thank... read more »

We are halfway through November! Crazy I know!  We washed, graded, packaged, and shipped out about 40,000lbs of potatoes this week, mostly into NYC.  That was a good, busy week for us, and we need to see more weeks like this before farmer Jackie has her baby and my wife has hers!   So,... read more »

First week of November is in the books and we finished digging potatoes this week and it can now officially feel like late fall for us on the farm.  Now we pull the potatoes out of storage, wash them, grade them and ship them out throughout the tri-state area.  Its a labor of love, and honestly... read more »

Harvest moon is upon us and the push continues to harvest all our potatoes.  The first half of potato harvest went smooth, and the 2nd half has been a struggle with many break downs and hiccups.  I guess the equipment is as tired as we are.  It is a labor of love that is for sure, but... read more »

Halfway through October already even though it has felt like early September outside lately.  Above average temperatures are nice but the fall crops aren't a real fan of hot dry weather.  It speeds up the growth and broccoli especially doesn't like this.   Update on potato harvest:... read more »
