This is a reminder that final CSA payments are due by April 1st. All CSA members who have not yet paid the full balance should have received an email telling them their balance due. If you received an email in error or did not receive one when yo think you should have please don't hesitate to call or email.
It's the beginning of springtime, which means its the season of babies at the farm. We have baby green grass in the pasture, tiny red maple flowers, chicks, tender speckled lettuce and the hens are really laying the eggs these days. I feel like I am hunting for Easter eggs when I find the blue and green eggs that the Americauna or "Easter Eggers" breed lay in the nest boxes. What an exciting feeling!
Come on out to the farm and get a couple of dozen eggs. Eggs keep well, and since ours are so fresh, you can refrigerate them for 4 weeks after purchase. There is a springtime special for the eggs- for the next 2 weeks the eggs are $2.00/ dozen. We also have small-medium eggs from the young hens or pullets for $1.00/ dozen. They are great "portion" sizes. Also available at the farm is our pasture raised pork.
We are about to seed beets, peas, and lettuce for the first CSA boxes. We are so excited to finally be planting. We are also setting out transplants of spinach, cabbage, and broccoli.
Here are some fun photos of farm goings ons: preparing the garden and one of our big roosters.
