Who's Ready for Fresh Produce?

Gardening season is well under way on our farm. How is everyone's garden going? Are you all done planting what you want to plant?

We are still working on planting more rounds of a variety of different produce. We still have more rounds of sweet corn to plant, continuing to plant summer crops, and will be planting pumpkins very soon.

Our local farmers market started the beginning of May so we have been cutting lettuce, spinach, arugula, kale, and other greens as well as picking radishes and green onions for our customers.

Today was the first pick up of our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for 2014. Our CSA members will come to our local farmers market and pick up their weekly share of produce. Our shares consist of 6-10 different vegetables/fruit each week. This is our 5th year offering a CSA at the market and although we are not a large CSA, it continues to grow every year. We do a 17 week Spring/Summer CSA and a 7 week Fall CSA. We appreciate the local customers and support.

It is always exciting for the first CSA to start. I think it is one of the highlights to our summer and growing season. When customers come back week from week and share with us how they used particular items from their CSA and what they liked in their weekly shares.


This was today's share. Our members received radish, arugula, green onions, salad mix, spinach, and kale. 
You might look for a local CSA to join where you live. To locate one check out Local Harvest
to find one near you. You can also use local harvest to find a farmers market near you. Why not buy fresh and local produce? Your local produce farmers will really appreciate it.
