Save The Date!
We will be having our first CSA event of the season next week! Please join us for an evening field walk on Thursday June 25 from 7:30 to around 8:30. We will tour the fields and discuss our farming operation. It is a great chance to meet your farmers and see first hand what goes into growing your food.  These days I take plenty of field walks. It helps to see what crops are coming on for CSA box planning, assess the field conditions for what work can be done, and prioritize tasks for the day/week. It is easy to snap pictures during these walks and here is a little preview for you.
