Slop, Chicken, and More Farm News...

Posted 4/3/2018 4:02pm by Michael Scheidel.

Hey Good Folks,

This time of year is always hard on our farm for a few reasons.

#1. Aesthetics.  The trees are still bare, the fields haven't greened up yet and everything that isn't wakening from winter dormancy is MUD!

#2. Planting.  The nurseries are full of plants waiting to be transplanted into the fields but the conditions are way too wet to trample the soil.  Needless to say the weather has not cooperated for early spring planting so far and the extended forecast doesn't look promising!  

#3. Animals.  Our livestock are happy.  Ruby, our family milker, and her calf rule the barnyard and some of the barn.  The three steer the children are raising are in their stalls filled with warm straw bedding.  However, I know they would be even happier if they had some green grass to graze on a sunny hillside!


Thank you to all who have ordered our pastured chicken for June.  We have plenty of birds still available for purchase so if you are interested check out pricing and details in previous post on our website blog.  


We have plenty of CSA shares available for the all-too-slowly-coming growing season!  If you are looking for some great fresh, local and thoughtfully grown food, consider joining our CSA.  All details are on our website under the CSA/Ordering tab.  As always, e-mail if you have any questions.   

More farm news...

We are constantly evolving to make our farm a fit instrument for change in our lives and in the lives of our community of supporters.  Here are some changes to look forward to for this season...extended market hours on the farm, more volunteer opportunities, pot luck dinners again, and a greater variety of produce.  Stay tuned for more details.   

Gratefully Growing!

The Scheidels
