Happenings at the Farm
A new decade is upon us at the Farm, as 2020 has rolled in. We are very excited about the upcoming growing season that is just around the corner. The last few seasons have been very challenging with the record amounts of moisture that mother nature handed us. We look forward to the upcoming season with new and old challenges that may arise. We are constantly planing how to make your experience at the Farm even better than your last visit. Every year we make some changes, some are small and some years the changes might be very drastic in the eyes of some. Yet they are all done in a manner to improve how we operate, but more importantly to improve your time here on the Farm whether you are picking berries or walking through the Corn Maze during Farmtoberfest.
We are busy getting all our seed and plant orders in and paid for. Planning and organizing where we are going to plant everything as it changes year to year with all our rotations. Going through a lot of the equipment and getting them all ready for the busy season. Some work happens in the Hoop House, as we start planting in March and are currently growing spinach and lettuce.
Spring will soon be upon us and of course strawberry picking. Really! Winter is a time for us to regenerate our energy for the upcoming seasons, but also to reflect on our blessings and why we are so grateful.
We hope you and your family will venture to the Farm this spring, summer & fall and enjoy what we have to offer. What a great way to get in touch with your food and who is growing it. There’s nothing like spending a little time in the country and breath some fresh country air.
