Farm Update

Market open Friday 12-7 and Saturday 9-4


2016 will go down as the year of the bug, at least here.  I have never seen so many bugs in my life on this little farm!  I was mowing, with the push mower, between rows of beans yesterday and was flushing out a cloud of things.    It's amazing.  Of course, some of the bugs are helpful bugs and some are not and thats one of the problems with non-organic growing.  When you spray with an insecticide you're killing everything, the good and the bad.  Being organic growers we have to grin and bare.  Unfortunately when we grin, this year, we have bugs in our teeth.   The good news is finally, finally, we have picked the first batch of tomatoes!! In the market this Friday and Saturday:

Tomatoes (heirloom and hybrid)
Sweet Corn
Egg plant
Sweet Onions (red and yellow)
Red Potatoes
White Potatoes
Lettuce
Asian Cucumbers
Beets (red and golden)
Zucchini
Yellow Squash
Zephyr Summer Squash (green & yellow)
Cabbage ($2 per head, WHAT!!)
Swiss Chard
Turnips
Eggs
Honey

Yoga on the farm returns this Saturday morning at 9.

Farm Update

Market open Friday 12-7 and Saturday 9-4

Once again, we find our chickens popping out eggs at an alarming clip.  Even a fox attack and extremely hot weather isn't slowing them down. It's a good thing for our customers because it allows us to advertise an egg special for Friday and Saturday while the market is open for full serve.  However.....you must say the secret word to get your egg deal.  Simply by coming into the market tomorrow or Saturday and saying the word 'WATTLE" you will save $1.50 per dozen. Just so know the wattle are those red things on a chicken that hang below their beak.  In this hot weather they help the chicken stay cooler.  By saying the word "wattle" you will only pay $3.50 per dozen on our home grown eggs.   In the market this Friday and Saturday:

Sweet Corn
Egg plant
Sweet Onions (red and yellow)
Red Potatoes
White Potatoes
Lettuce
Cucumbers
Beets
Carrots
Zucchini
Yellow Squash
Zephyr Summer Squash (green & yellow)
Cabbage ($2 per head, WHAT!!)
Swiss Chard
Curly Kale
Turnips
Mint (many varieties)
Eggs-$3.50 per dozen with the secret word)
Honey
Zivot Probiotic Drinks

There will be no yoga on the farm this Saturday, but yoga class will resume the following Saturday 8/6

The hot summer weather is upon us and so are the bugs. I don't think I have ever seen so many bugs in the fields as I have seen this year.  Could it be from the extremely wet spring?  Could it be that our organic produce is so tasty the bugs just can't help themselves?   Whatever it is, summer squash, cucumber and bean plants are taking a beating.  That's the bad news.  The good news is that we have a lot of great produce in the market Friday and Saturday and the tomatoes are another week closer to ripening.   In the market this Friday and Saturday:

Sweet Corn
Green Beans
Sweet Onions (red and yellow)
Red Potatoes
White Potatoes
Lettuce
Cucumbers
Beets
Carrots
Zucchini
Yellow Squash
Zephyr Summer Squash (green & yellow)
Cabbage ($1 per head, WHAT!!)
Swiss Chard
Curly Kale
Turnips
Mint (many varieties)

Yoga Saturday morning at 9.  Just show up and have a beautiful relaxing morning.  $10 at the screen door.

We would like to apologize to those we said we would contact when more blueberries were ready. The blueberries have been ravaged by birds and japanese beetles after the initial picking.


Don't forget yoga at the farm Saturday morning at 9.  You can sign up and pay when you arrive or on the Razz Yoga web site.  The first few weeks have been beautiful, peaceful mornings.  All levels welcome.  We think you would really enjoy it!
