A Glimpse into the 2017 Season....
Your Farmers have been busy planting early crops in the greenhouse.  Last week we started planting broccoli, cabbage, greenhouse tomatoes, and some PYO Field herbs and flowers.  This year we are starting all those crops a month early to see if they will be ready by the beginning of June.  We are also planting those same crops a month later with heat resistant varieties to have them harvested later in June.  Lets cross our fingers and hope this experiment works out!

Winter came to the Farm last week while we were warm and toasty in the greenhouse!

Fruit Share Information
Would you like to pick up a CSA Fruit Share when you come to get your CSA vegetables? It’s time to sign up now with North Star Orchard for their weekly Fruit Share, which is available for pickup for 15 weeks starting in August.
CSA Members have been enjoying the Fruit Share for years, and we encourage you to take a look at what the share has to offer here.
This is not ordinary fruit, but unique and heritage varieties which are full of flavor: plums with pizazz, perfect peaches, amazing Asian pears, great (seedless) grapes, astounding apples, and a sprinkling of heritage pear varieties.
Sign up directly with North Star on their website (link again to ), or if you need to reach them directly, email
And for a quick view of North Star Orchard itself, enjoy this 90-second bird's eye view (link to: )

[Just to clarify the fruit share does not come from Goodwill at Homfields Farm.  The fruit share comes from North Star Orchard.  Goodwill at Homefields farm is a pick-up location for the fruit which can be picked up at the same time as your vegetable share.]

Spread the veggie love,

Your Farmers
