Hello, Spring!

Hawaii farmers market

Of course we had to talk with all the farmer/vendors at the markets!

After a long and cold winter, and plenty of travel around the country to rejuvenate us, we’re back at home working on the farm. We’ve visited farm markets in Kentucky, South Carolina, Washington DC, Connecticut, and Hawaii, always looking for the freshest and most delicious foods.  We’ve not been disappointed!

 

This year, we will not be vending at the Saturday farmers market in Columbia City, but will have our products at our Farm Store on N Brown Road, near Loon Lake.  Stop by to see what’s IN STORE for you.

Our hoop houses are well into production, with fresh salad greens and some herbs already being harvested.  Carrots and onions are well into early growth. We’re beginning to plant outside beds, with beets, carrots, onion, garlic, fingerling potatoes,

spinach and other produce already in the ground.  Chuck reports new growth on our asparagus, figuring in another few weeks we will begin early harvest.  Rhubarb is coming up and the berry bushes are beginning to show buds.  Spring is just a wonderful time of the year here.

Meanwhile, we have a good supply of “local sugar” since we worked hard last fall and winter.  We have our own, pure honey, sweet sorghum syrup, and maple syrup, all locally produced.  Freshly made granola, including our new buckwheat and oats variety, as well as jams and jellies are also on our shelves.

And we are partnering with Wise Farms LLC to produce yummy sorghum caramel corn.  Find it here at the Farm Store, and at the Posy Patch on May 11 & 12.

Have a sweet spring and enjoy every minute!
