Significant changes with our farming operation for 2014!

2014 CSA Renewal Newsletter Significant changes to our farming operation planned! Greetings from the farm! After surviving such a difficult growing season in 2013, we have been doing a lot of soul searching, that is in terms of our lifetime goals and expectations.  We want this farm to not only to be sustainable from an environmental […]

Oh journal, how we miss thee!

Since establishing our Facebook page, it has been rather easy to periodically post a photograph of our daily experiences on the farm using this social media tool, that we have become negligent recording our life experiences in our journal.

Please comment on the Food Safety Act by Nov 15th!

So PLEASE RESPOND to voice your opinion. You will find procedures […]

We are excited that most of our fall transplants are still alive!

We are thankful that although we continue to have rain showers nearly each day, each storm is bringing less rain, allowing us to transplant and direct seed a few crops for fall.
