Hello Friends of the Farm!

Another week goes quickly by at the farm, but your farmers are stepping quickly, planting over 6,000 feet of potatoes, 4,000 pepper plants, chipping brush, mulching the berries, putting up stakes and trellis for snow peas and much more.Never a dull moment, as we also had some plumbing repairs, worked on a possible potato digger conversion,  making an organic fertilizer precision dropper, a harvest rack for the tractor, concrete work, sawmill and wood splitting operation, field tillage, major landscaping work, and chased an escaped herd of zebras runing though the farm (ok, one of those is inaccurate and pertains to the day of April. ) 

Shares available for the 2012 season  If you know anyone who is interested in our food from the fields, here is a link where they can sign up for a share:

Fruit Shares from North Star Orchard:
If you haven't heard, we will be a pick up site for a fruit share from North Star Orchard. Ike and Lisa are long-time fruit growers and know their stuff, and often appear in regional and national publications. If you'd like to receive their tree fruit starting in mid-summer, go to to sign up or learn more about their outstanding peaches, apples, Asian pears, plums and other tree fruit.  

Looking forward to our first harvest, only a few short months away. Thank you for supporting our farm!
Your Farmers
