Please join us Saturday at 4:00 for our
2013 Fall Farm Tour
Saturday, September 28th, 4:00 pm
Guided Tour. No Fee. Family friendly. Please, no pets.
Directions on our our webpage. We hope to see you! I can’t promise you peppers dripping with dew like this photo…
…but I can promise you a chance to see and hear how we grow enough vegetables to feed 100 families on less than 2 acres of land using Certified Naturally Grown practices. You will also hear about our plans for improvements and expansion, as well as plans to become Certified Organic in the coming years.
CSA Members (Summer and Fall): Join us this Saturday after the tour for a Potluck. It will be a nice chance to eat together, chat about vegetables and even things non-farm related. We look forward to putting names with faces and relaxing for the evening.
Our local Extension Agent, Laura Siegle, visited us this past week and wrote up a lovely blog post here, so I’ll leave the blogging to her this week. Give it a read! It is nice to have a description of our farm written by a visiting agricultural professional.
This week’s harvest includes:
Our Farm Share Bag (consisting of the items in the Farm Share this week, in one easy to order option), Arugula, Asian Greens (Pac Choi), Basil, Chard, Cilantro, Collards, Eggplant, Escarole, Frisee, Garlic, Green Beans, Hearty Mix, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Okra, Peppers (Bell, Padrone, Hungarian Wax, Anaheim, & Jalapeno), Radishes (three types), Salad Mix, Sesame Leaf, Turnips (Hakurei) …plus Naturally Leavened, Hearth Baked Bread.
Recipe suggestions, including Summer Squash Fries, are on our Recipe page.

Pick up is located on our farm, in Church Hill, and at any host home if there are at least 10 shares picking up there. Email us if you have interested neighbors and wish to be a host home! (Market Share Sign Up is also open, good for purchasing from us through the end of 2013.)
