Pastured Chicken, CSA, Heirloom Tomato and Plant Sale and more Farm News!

Posted 3/16/2018 9:47am by Michael Scheidel.

Hey Good folks!

Despite the unrelenting cold, wind and snowy weather, we are prepping for a great season.  The current weather is driving us nuts but we all know it'll break soon (just trying to stay positive!).  Our nursery is filling up with starts like pac-choi, napa cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, beets, head lettuce, and peas.  We've also got our heirloom tomatoes seeded as well as a growing lineup of peppers.  Flowers have popped up and will soon be ready for bumping up to flats where they will grow out to be planted in the field. We are looking to really expand our culinary herb selection this year too so keep an eye out for some really awesome herb varieties! 


Nest week we will be taking pre-orders for our pastured chicken for the 2018 season.  We raise two batches of pastured/transitional organically fed broiler chickens on our farm.  Our first batch will be ready by mid-June.  So stay tuned for our e-mail next week regarding pre-ordering.  We will again be offering whole birds or the whole bird parted out.  


We are accepting new members for our 2018 CSA.  To not be redundant, all details and pricing are on our website under the CSA/Ordering tab.  We offer "your choice" full shares (10 items/week), half shares (6 items/week) as well as add on flower and herb shares.  Currently pick up locations are here at the farm, at Healthy Habits Natural Market in Orwigsburg, Woo de La Kitchen in Hershey and at the Hershey Farmer's Market.  If you own or work at a business that is interested in hosting our CSA for your employees or coworkers, get in touch!  Easy online payment available too.  We would love to grow for you! 


Mother's day is tomorrow!!! Just checking to see who is still reading!  Actually it's May 13th and we are having our annual heirloom tomato and plant sale on the 12th.  We feature some awesome heirloom tomato varieties as well as peppers, flowers, herbs and other garden plants.  Mark you calendars and stay tuned for more plant sale news!  


Gratefully Growing!

The Scheidels
