Fields, Chickens, CSA and More!
Hey good folks.
We've had a lot of inquiries about our farm and CSA recently and I believe it is due to the obvious change in season. We have plenty of shares still available for the 2012 season and are looking forward to adding our new Chester Co. drop off (TBA) soon. All details are on the website but call or e-mail if anyone has further questions.
Lots of you have been asking about chickens and yes, we will be selling our own pasture raised broiler chickens the last week in June, July, August, and September. These will be pre-order so keep an eye out for an order sheet at our markets and CSA pick-up sites and here on the website.
Yup. We've got plenty of eggs and you probably got our e-mail about them earlier this week. Stop by the farm any day except Sundays during daylight hours to buy eggs and help yourself. This is an honor system so make change and leave your money in the tin by the walk-in cooler. We will also include raw cheese from Hilltop Meadow farm in the cooler as well.
We have been busy taking advantage of the beautiful weather but have been cautious to put tender plants out too soon! We just planted zucchini in the hoophouse and are preparing to plant cucumbers and tomatoes in the high tunnel next week. We're just about done planting our potatoes of which we have 6 varieties. Our first beds of beets and carrots are up as well as our first bed of mixed spring greens and salad mixes. Cilantro will be a couple of weeks away and peas are a couple of inches tall and beginning to stretch upward. We are planting our seed grown onion plants and just completed our first bed of cippolini onions. Broccoli, kales, chard, napa cabbages, bibb lettuce and other head lettuces were planted two weeks ago and are beginning to take off.
We've also had a lot of inquiries about our plant sales. We will have an assortment of heirloom tomatoes, flowers, mixed herbs available in 6-packs or individual 2" pots. We will not be offering them through online ordering but will have them displayed when we have veggie sales at the farm. We will be announcing these sales through our blog and e-mails so stay tuned.
Thank you all for supporting local family farms! Peas!
