Finally, SPRING!  So many exciting things going on.  250 tomato plants are in the hoop house and thriving.  The other 300will go out when the spring nights are a bit warmer.  Asparagus and sorrel have popped through and fingers crossed that the fruit and berry blossoms will be spared by any unexpected freeze.

We have been very pleased with the turn out we are getting for our various events.  Our organic egg coloring workshop was a hit. Our Organic Gardening class went over so well we have another one scheduled for this Sunday April 30th from 1-3.  Not too late to sign up.  If you are interested in workshops and do not see them scheduled yet, contacted us.  We usually schedule them the beginning of each month. We will have a few Jam and Jelly workshops in May in preparation for the strawberry harvest. 

Time to get to work!

Happy January everyone!  Now that the Holidays are over and we got some much needed down time, we are ready to start the season once again.  Before planting begins in February, we are getting back into the swing of things with prepared food and scheduled workshops.

We will be open this Saturday from 11-4 and other select Saturdays.  We have the following available:  Our popular quiches, baked goods, grain salads, soups and of course, our jams and delicious granola.  Some root vegetables are available also. Stop by.

Another season older, wiser and grateful

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and thanks for yet another amazing season of Farming and Jamming!  We have come a long way since 7 years ago when we had an idea to grow some Certified Organic Veggies.  

We are grateful to our local community, friends and helpers, and to our retailers who believe in what we create.  Thank you all so much!

We now  have so much more to look forward to with Sasha coming on board to coordinate and manage our Wedding and Farm Events.  There is some landscaping still to be done, but we will be holding our first wedding on sight this spring and we CAN NOT wait.

See you again in March!  Until then,  grab some Jams from The Barn for some great holiday gifts :)


Ana, Matt, Sasha and Nick

(and of course Bob is still here in spirit...and would be so grateful)

Don't you just love this weather!  Its finally a pleasure to work outside.  Tomatoes are still in full swing as are the Kale and Collards.  Sadly, a new crop of beans was devoured by a family of deer.  But we have broccoli, eggplant, carrots and lots of other stuff.  Hope to see you later 11-4.

Thank you, thank you for the rain but we could use 2 or 3 more days of some rain to saturate everything.  But in the meantime, the plants thank you Mother Nature!  Kale and collards are doing well. Beans and cucumbers are about ready--probably available next week. So long to the asparagus, its done for the year.  The tomatoes are huge and ready to turn.  You can not imagine how many calls I get about the tomatoes.  Soon......

Quiches, cobblers, muffins, cookies, jams and jellies, granola, honey and maple syrup are waiting for takers.  See you 11-4.

Our first birdhouse workshop on the farm was a great success!  Could have used more glue guns but all in all the end products were gorgeous.  Every birdhouse decorated with things found on the farm.

This week we have lettuce, kale, collard greens, radishes, hikarai turnips, our delicious cobblers and quiche and of course our jams. Soup is carrot ginger and salad is wheatberry feta.  Hope to see you this weekend.

Can you believe it!  The planting is finally done.  Should have been completed weeks ago--in fact a month ago is more like it. Weather and the births of my two grandchildren slowed things down.  We are back on track now.

Kale is almost ready--one more week I think.   Broccoli and beans look great also and those tomatoes!!!

This week arugula, organic lettuce, asparagus, herbs, and all of our great prepared food.  Soup, grain salad, pizza and quiche on Saturday along with cobblers, cookies, muffins and breads.

Reminder:  This Saturday 1-4 we are having yet another jam workshop. Learn the basics of making homemade jam and jelly and go home with your own creations.  $50 a person.  Let me know by Friday.

With the fencing finally done, the planting is coming to an end.  Tomatoes in the hoop house are growing and blooming.  Can't wait!

This week we have asparagus (still going strong), lots of beautiful organic lettuce,  arugula, radishes, sorrel, and herbs.  Soup is non dairy cream of asparagus soup, grain salad is bulgur wheat with chick peas and dill.  Don't forget our muffins, cookies and quiche on Saturday.  The cobblers were so well received, I will be making them weekly.  If you want to preorder, let me know.  Can 't make too many, have to eat them. 

Hope to see you soon.  Friday-Sunday 11-4.

The planting is almost complete as is the fencing and irrigation.  Another week and we can sit back and wait for all those wonderful gifts that nature has to offer.  By the way, it also offered a bunny rabbit that ate all my broccoli!  Not to worry--planting more but it may be delayed.

Next week we will have our full opening.  Thursday-Sunday 11-4.  Tomorrow we are open 11-4 with beautiful organic lettuce, radishes, arugula, spinach, sorrel, herbs and our prepared quiches, soup, meals, and baked goods.  Look forward to seeing you then.
