June Happenings on the Farm
We are now Certified Naturally Grown for our produce and livestock (eggs)!
Our farming practices have not changed, we just added certification for your assurance that we are following organic and sustainable practices. This month our paperwork was completed, we had inspections for both our livestock (chickens and ducks) and produce, and we officially received our certification. For more information about CNG, visit here or the CNG website.
New Berry Plants Arrived
We finished prepping the beds and planted our new raspberry (many varieties), strawberry (2 new varieties), and blackberry plants. They are doing well and putting out new green growth. We finally finished raking and planting 300#s of grass seed in the walking rows and it is starting to grow (yay, more to mow!).
We were a bit behind this year in planting a lot of veggies because we were busy prepping and planting the new berry plants. But, zucchini, melons, winter squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, snap peas, peas, legumes, and more are in and growing; succession planting of greens, beets, and carrots was done. Our second shipment of 10 different varieties of sweet potato plants are in. We keep busy keeping up with weeding.
Farm Stand Finished and Open
The farm stand is complete and open for business this month! Shelli designed and built it (so don't blame imperfections on Paul haha). Check out the farm stand page for hours and our Facebook page for updates.
