Little Homesteaders Program

We’re excited to announce that we’re hosting a new farm school program! Have some young ones that could use a little time on the farm? We’ll explore the question “Where does our food come from?”. Students will participate in farm chores, cooking projects, foraging, and have lots of time to play as well!

Farm Fam and CSA Party

(No! You don’t have to be a CSA member to come)

Save the date – Saturday September 25th! We’re hosting our CSA picnic from 4 – 9 pm. We’ll have a pig roast and s’mores. Feel free to bring sides, desserts and/or drinks to share. We’ll have dishes and cutlery available, but you may want to bring your own picnic blanket or chairs, lawn games, and bug spray. Farm tour starts promptly at 4:30 and campfire later in the evening. There’s a good chance that Greg’s going to want to get the ol’ cider press out – so be prepared to help with that too (it’s messy)! Feel free to bring along extra apples and we’ll press your apples for cider for you too! RSVPs are appreciated.

Plenty of Pears

We have a great crop of pears for the next couple of weeks! They are a Burford Pear which Greg planted a few years back. On the Slow Food Ark of Taste list, they are known for their versatility and hardiness. Although harvested while still hard, they do ripen on the counter and are great for eating fresh, canned or cooked into desserts and dinners. Last year we lost our pear crop to a May frost, so we’re excited to have them again – even though they are attracting the yellow jackets!

The Menu

Beets, potatoes, tomatoes (maybe some green ones!), tomatillos, scallions, greens, pears, apples.
