The March Time for Spring Planting

       With March comes the real catalyst to get things growing! In February we opened the greenhouses and began our early plantings and germination tests. However, it is with March you begin to feel the ergency of the impending season.  Soon we’ll be spreading compost & minerals upon the fields and shortly there after preparing our first seed beds for the season, by the end of this month there will already be  visual signs of the first harvest of spring. Our CSA application  season is also in full swing, early discounts are still available, so please check out our CSA application page when interested. We are also taking applications now for  volunteers and apprenticeships for those interested in helping out on the farm. Opportunities are open to all people. College and High School  students can use their experiences here with the farm for Community Service Credit Credits.

Though there may be snow out side, with in is a sense that spring is fast approaching and wer’re excited for the new season of growth that is to come!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Farm News: Early Season

 It’s that time of year again when farmers begin to plan for spring. Currently we are pouring over seed catalogs yield records from last year, and devising our planting strategy for the coming season. It is also time to reserve CSA shares for 2013. Many have signed up already and we’re getting inquiries every day. Please check out our CSA info on this web site & contact us if your curious about sharing with the farm this season!

This year we are trying something New! We are continuing to have the Harvest House open Thursday afternoons for those who need eggs! With the expansion of the farm in the last couple of years, we have also expanded our layer capacity there by making fresh eggs available all year round. So stop up on Thursdays!. While your here we will also continue to offer (if available)winter storage crops as long as they last. We still have a good supply of winter squashes & red potatoes. Until the nights get exceedingly cold we’ll also have greens like Kale, Swiss Chard.

New CSA applications are currently on line , and Markets will resume in the April of 2013, so watch for updates.
