Farm News – June 12, 2014

Hi Folks, Well here we go! The first week of deliveries has arrived. As previously mentioned we got a late start on planting due to the long winter, so the first couple of weeks won’t be as bountiful as in previous years. I expect that we will make up for this as we go through the season. (more…)

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a pleasant Memorial Day Weekend. This second pre-season update is a little late going out because we have been working long days in the field trying to get caught up on the planting schedule after a late start. I can report that we are just about back on track and even a little bit ahead on some of the warm weather crops. We have been getting a fair amount of rain so crops are growing well. (more…)

Hello Everyone, Happy Spring! At least I hope it has arrived and it’s time to sing “Here Comes the Sun” because it was certainly a long hard lonely winter. As you may have expected we are off to a late start this season, due of course to the persistent cold and wet conditions. (more…)

Hello everyone, Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah!

It is always good to give thanks. It doesn’t matter what your religious beliefs are, or if you are an agnostic or a secular humanist. Even in the most difficult times there is much for which to be grateful. This year, for me at least there is more than ever to be thankful for. I am thrilled and happy to report that this Tuesday we had the closing on the farm purchase. (more…)

Hi Folks,

We have arrived at the week that perhaps you all have been dreading — the last delivery of the season. I have been getting feedback from many of you on what a great season it has been. I am gratified by your kind words and support. I am quite satisfied and content with the produce we have been able to provide to you this year. (more…)

Hello Everyone,

We continue to experience dry conditions here at the farm, with last week’s rain dropping only a miserly quarter of an inch. This along with very cold weather has greatly slowed the growth of the crops that remain in the field. We are expecting to be hammered with 2 or 3 nights of temperatures near or below 20 degrees this week. (more…)

Farm News – Nov 7 2013

Hi Folks,

We had some rain this past Friday. It was once again less than I had hoped for at just under a half an inch. I guess we’ll have to keep running the sprinklers a bit longer!

We were very busy over the weekend preparing for an extremely cold night – Sunday into Monday. Even though everything that remains in the fields is fairly hardy, temperatures in the low 20’s can still do damage. (more…)

Farm News – Oct 31, 2013

Hi Folks,

It was a cold week here on the farm. We’ve had frost every morning and temperatures dropped into the mid-twenties on several nights. Even some of the more hardy crops have sustained a little damage, but nothing substantial. The principal effect of the low temperatures is slow growth and maturation. We have thousands of broccoli and cauliflower just beginning to head up but they take a bit longer than normal to reach harvestable size. Those who received broccoli or cauliflower last week will likely get Napa cabbage this time around. For those who got cabbage we will do our best to send broccoli or cauliflower. (more…)
