It continues to be a rather cold and wet spring. But we have much planted and hope the fields will dry off soon to do more direct sowing. The ground has been too cold for good germination. After this weeks cold spell we hope to be able to set out many transplants we have waiting for the warmer conditions. We are harvesting some greens and eagerly look forward to more crops coming in.
If you are a teacher or have kids in school you may be interested in our Spring farm tour. It will feature strawberries and more. See Spring farm tour information under the heading Spring Tours.
Check out the items in the garden center and bakery.
Greetings! It has been a long hard winter and still lingers but changes are coming. The cold and overcast days have delayed the normal growth I had anticipated. But we have been actively trying to keep pace in order to be productive as soon as possible. Lots of good stuff growing in trays and even a few items direct seeded but until the soil warms we will be slow to do much planting.
Good news! we are open. The bakery got off to a good start with not only the set menu of pies and desserts but threw in some new items. Raspberry squares and Magic cookies are now available.
The Produce market has some greens and cool season items. More farm products will be coming as the weather improves.
The Garden Center has plants and seeds as well as gardening supplies.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
The month is full of short days that go quickly by. It means planning ahead is a needed in order to get things done.
We have fresh greens, collards, kale, cabbage, pecans, honey and other items to help with holiday preparations.
The bakery has many items to add to your holiday gatherings.
The garden center has some neat gift ideas for any garden lover's list.
Short days are good for being long on love and patience.
Good news. You still have time to place orders for baked goods. Even better news you can get fresh string beans and half runners at the market. Yes, we did save some of the beans from the cold. So fresh really means fresh. How does fresh broccoli sound. You probably are like me. You'd rather taste it than hear it. Speaking of taste, there is kale, kholrabi, collards, cabbage, radish and mustard ( slick, curly and tendergreens ). Plus something many have been waiting for, fresh apple cider ( we should be pressing Friday). So besides all the usual items like sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes, etc. you have more reasons to be thankful. Have a good Thanksgiving!
We are now taking orders for Thanksgiving pies. Deadline for ordering pies is November 23.
Pumpkin Rolls are now available.
