The Return of Winter

Not unlike yourselves our seedlings hunkered down for this weather abnormality brought to us by a polar vortex. Our small team of farm hands finished packing last week’s order of Farm Boxes and Mother’s Day bundles to head back into the field to tuck the crops in. It was late Friday morning when we started [...]

Take Me Out to the Compost

With the farm closed to the public, it has provided us some time to appreciate the compost pile. The compost pile deserves as much loving attention as all our other living  things on the farm, because it too  is alive with microbes and gives life to the fields and their crops. Our ever growing pile [...]

Early Spring Farming

Unlike last year spring has arrived on the farm which includes much busy work to prepare for the season ahead. We finally have rebuilt the greenhouse after it was destroyed in a windstorm in early 2019 which means we have been able to start our seeds. The first seeds to go in are the greens [...]

A Letter from Jim and Leslie

Well, are these not interesting times?  We can begin to feel very small and powerless while listening daily to the numbers of illness and deaths due to something so small you need a microscope to see it,.  Here on the farm we are choosing to look for the blessings that surround us every day.   [...]

Strawberries – Off to a late start but in for the long run!

sweet and delicious We are always impatient to get that first taste of strawberries, fresh from the field; this year we had to wait till June 19th.  The good news is that the season is still here with us and strawberries can still be picked.  Hopefully for another week.  That is often unheard [...]

Spring is in the Air

We all heard the collective sigh of relief as the weather warmed up and the sun started melting the snow.  Here on the farm we've had small rivers flowing as the snow melted revealing grass, plowed fields and roadways.  This is a beautiful time of year as the ground is still solid enough to walk [...]
