Farm News

Welcome to the extended season! This is the season for roasted veggies, comfort casseroles, and warm bowls of soup. Not to mention Thanksgiving of course!

This year the cold snuck up on us fast and we had to harvest everyday to get our remaining cold sensitive crops out of the ground before deep freezes and ice storms! One day it was beets in the morning and turnips in the afternoon, the next day was carrots and rutabaga, and so on and so forth. We even had to send some of our produce off farm because we ran out of cooler space!

Despite the early cold snap, extended season boxes will be full of long lasting storage crops and a few fresh goodies from our hoop houses.  Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
