Farm Update

Free cucumbers!

As we were heading out to start planting our fall crops, we detoured by the cucumbers.  There are a lot of cucumbers in our small cuke area.  We will have them in the market on the counter for you. Just come in and help yourselves.

So, the planting begins this weekend for the autumn.  Going in this weekend are broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage transplants and in the next few days, potatoes, beets, lettuce, arugula, swiss chard, kale, turnips, carrots, radishes, beans and spinach.  We will be going to pick up the new laying chickens in a couple of weeks!  Don't forget we always have honey.

Come over and get a cucumber!

The new farm looks familiar

We're Back!

Yes, it's true.....After an exhaustive search for the next farm, we are exhausted.  We exhausted all the possibilities and found none that we liked better than the current Rousedale Farm.  And now that the exhaust systems on our vehicles are exhausted from the many exhausting trips, here's the plan:
1..We start planting fall veggies in a couple of weeks
2..We get all the coolers, counters and shelves back in the market.
3..New laying chickens arrive in mid August for egg sales.
4..We have re-started our apiary with 2 hives of honey bees, in hopes of adding more.
5..We begin planning the full re-start for spring.
6..We are excited!

Don't forget we have honey for sale everyday.

We're looking forward to getting started again, but most importantly we're psyched to see all of you guys again!

Locally Yours,

Vicky and Steve

P.S. We will keep you posted on our progress

Blueberries

Hi everyone!  As Paul Revere once said,"The blueberries are ready, the blueberries are ready!" Are you interested in picking some beautiful, organic blueberries?   Because we have a limited amount we will have to schedule the picking. Please email us if you would like to do some picking and tell us when you can come.  We will contact you on a first come, first serve basis and set up a time.  Those that can come sooner than later will be first on the list as the berries won't just sit around and wait for you.  Many bushes are ready now.  There should be more in the next couple of weeks.  $5 per pound.

Locally Yours,

Vicky and Steve

Just a Reminder

As we continue our search for the next farm, we wanted to remind you that we continue to have raw honey for sale.  It is self serve for $8 for a 1 pound jar, $15 for 2 pounds and $22 for a 3 pound jar.  If you have jars that you would like filled, please call 410-215-6776 or send us an email.  We fill your jars for $7 per pound.

Also...as long as we're here our perennial items such as our organic asparagus and blueberries will be available.  We're expecting the asparagus to appear in mid April and blueberries the end of June or first of July.  We will let you know when they are ready.

Locally yours,

Down on the Farm

Where are the Eggs?


If you have been wondering why the eggs stock has been diminishing, we have been selling our chickens off to other families.  Many folks have inquired about purchasing some of our layers for their family flocks and we have obliged.  Why? We are getting ready for our next big thing!  We will let you know what the next big thing is soon.  For now, our "eggs for sale" sign is coming down. Honey will still be available.

Vicky and I want to thank you for your patronage this year and thank you for supporting the small, local farms in our area.  Have a wonderful Holiday season!

Farm Update

Closed For The Season Rap!

Please add your best beat...

Vic and I lookin and the field not cookin trying to make some decisions
The bugs are a jumpin', the bugs are eruptin', all the bugs causin’ nasty incisions
Squash is dyin', Tomatoes are cryin', beans aren’t at fruition
News not good, things not right, when we’re trying to pay tuition.

I know we said it and we thought we meant it, we’d have one more week to go
But it’s farmin’ and can be alarmin’ and things just don’t want to grow
So we’re done and it sure’s been fun seeing all your smilin' faces
Thank you so much, please keep in touch, you’re the folks that always amaze-us.

But seriously, thank you all for supporting us this year. You have know idea what it means to us.

Our last Yoga on the farm this Saturday morning at 9.

Locally Yours,
Vicky and Steve
P.S. Self serve eggs and honey remain through the year
