OMG its May.…where have I been?? I know its been awhile since I updated our farm info folks , I do apologize…we just get so busy during ‘peak season” that I fall behind.….I am finally reporting in! Since Marvin covers the markets during the week…I am chief of all farm chores and between seeding, watering, planting, book-work, dishes ‚meals..and all others…I just can’t keep up.…so yes its my fault that the website fell behind… We’ve had a bouncy roller coaster ride with the “winter” weather and then here we are in summer ( and its May) and very dry…way too dry! We’ve added chickens to the farm ( so yes around Novemer) we should be able to offer fresh eggs.….(baby chicks & now pullets.….what an experience that has been). We’ve planted and lost alot of our fall crops this past“winter”, over 3,000 broccoli & cauliflower never made it to market (or CSA) along with Napa Cabbages…yet when our backs felt broke…our spirits hailed on.…. Some pictures are added so you can get a little visual insite.…. THANKS to each of you that have stuck with us and came to market( or CSA) and helped us plow on!!!
Here is a letter from a very satisfied customer:
Just wanted to let you know that the pork roast I got from you last
week was the best I have eaten in years! It was so lean, tender,
juicy, and flavorful. What a delicious meal it made.
Also wanted to say thank you for being farmers and growing all the
yummy stuff we eat. I come from a long line of Pennsylvania farmers
and know what hard work it is. So, thank you! Your willingness to work
long hours, haul all the goods to market, and grow good food for us
‘city folk’ is appreciated.
We have started raising quail, and we are selling them “dressed” at our farmer’s markets. We also have more pigs for market too!
We’re still planting and growing veggies, but have backed off from some many “flowers” this season as we try to go with all edibles so the farm can stay afloat with the economic shift. We’ll see where this season takes us !
We have also added “Buddy-Sirloin Graham” to the farm, we hope to add our beef products to our market menu in the spring.
We are doing our own processing now and hope to start the uphill battle of becoming “USDA” within our lifetime, but for now we are under our “master feed permit” with the State, so for now its.…veggies, pork, quail and jams n jellies !
And again we also have the veggie starter plants for the home gardener! Happy New Year to all !
