spring work

All of a sudden, there's so much happening on the farm.


Early this morning, a giant truck showed up with our delivery of straw. Apparently, we are going to be mulching like crazy this year.


The mobile chicken coop gets another upgrade!  This time, Jeff is adding a new roof and a new trailer base so we can tow it with the tractor.


Kate seeded clover in Dudley Field today (the field across the road from the house and barn). We have high hopes that these tiny seeds will soon become a beautiful soil-improving cover crop.


The greenhouse is nearly full and we're about to start potting tomatoes up into bigger pots. 


Good thing the new greenhouse is going up this week, because we're going to need a lot more space!

organic seedlings for your garden!

Pre-order deadline extended to April 25th! 

Our first round of seeds are germinating in the greenhouse - onions, peppers, eggplant, parsley, microgreens . . . and today we're seeding tomatoes, which makes us really happy.

 It's hard to believe, but in just a few short weeks, our greenhouse will be bursting at the seams with thousands of seedlings - many destined for our own fields, and many more for our Spring Plant Sale.  In fact, we're putting up another greenhouse so we can grow even more plants for our organic gardening friends and neighbors. 

If you're thinking about planting a garden this year, we would love to grow your seedlings for you!  All of our plants are Certified Organic, and grown from seed here on the farm.  We use a compost-based potting mix which produces sturdy, healthy plants.

Reserve your favorite varieties by pre-ordering your plants by April 1st.  Plants will be ready for pick-up at the farm in late May. We're offering 25 varieties of tomatoes (many heirlooms), as well as peppers, eggplant, basil, greens, cucumbers, squash, and more.

Additional plants will be available at our Spring Plant Sale on Memorial Day Weekend.

waiting for spring

We're wondering how the spinach and kale plants are doing under these tunnels. Hoping for a spring harvest.
