We still have plenty of space available for our 2015 Spring CSA.  We are hoping to have our first pick up on April 7, 2015.  We will see if the weather cooperates with us. Our CSA program is unlike most CSAs.  With most CSAs, the customer has to pay the whole amount at the beginning of the year so that the farmer will have money to buy seeds and other needed supplies. Our CSA members pay $20 each week when they pick up their bag of fresh vegetables. Click here to sign up for just the first week or for the entire season! You can learn more about our CSARead More →

We have had a pretty cold spring this year which as you can tell has set our spring plantings and harvests back a few weeks. Our first CSA pick up was on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.  We had a great turn out at the pick up and many others have been interested in joining since then.  We hope to add a weekly signup page to our website soon for our weekly veggie bags.  Stay tuned for more info on that. This winter/spring has been so crazy here on the farm.  It’s been colder than usual which is good and bad.  Plants grow slower in cold weather even in a hoopRead More →

I don’t read lots of books these days unless you count Little House in the Big Woods or Froggy Learns to Swim. But I do love a good book about farm life.  And I love to open up Herrick Kimball’s Writings of a Deliberate Agrarian that we’ve had for a couple years and reread parts of it.  I love how he writes about his life and about being a Christian agrarian.  Here’s a quote from Chapter 24, I’m a Backslidden and Repentant Gardener. “There is a time and a season for everything, and yesterday it was time for me to return to my garden.  IRead More →

Here’s something I wrote awhile back and never really posted it.  Sorry for such a long delay in posts too.  Hope this article makes up for it. A couple of weeks ago, a young person told me they wanted to farm.  Really.  And it made me want to cry.  Not out of pity but out of enthusiasm and joy for them. That’s why when I saw the blog post on May 24, 2011 from Oakhill Organics Farm in Oregon about this same subject, I just about fell over. It’s really an amazing thing growing food for yourself and others.  Farming is hard work.  No oneRead More →

We will not be at any markets this weekend.  We really don’t have that much stuff to take.   We have been getting behind on the farm and we need to catch up on starting stuff for the fall.  Hope to see you next week. Your farmers, Todd and MarnitaRead More →
