We are very excited to let you know about a couple of things happening here at the farm for this new season. The first is all about strawberries. We will have a lot more this year than last. There are two varieties and that will increase our harvest time by about three or four weeks, from the first part of June through mid-July. Those of you who hold shares in the CSA will see them in your bags for at least two weeks this year. Those of you who wish to come out and pick or purchase your own berries will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. Call us or watch the blog and Facebook for availability.
The second is all about sweet corn. We are field-planting two varieties this year. That will give shareholders lots of fresh sweet corn this year. Again, if you wish to come out and pick or purchase your own, call or check the blog or Facebook pages for availability.
We will have a roadside stand this year, too! Plans at this point are to open the stand from Thursday through Sunday, 7 AM to 7 PM. Breads will be available most days and organic eggs from Blake Family Farms will be available every day.
Greens are being planted in the hoophouse this week…we’ll be having fresh-picked salads in no time!
Watch for the announcement of the foraging workshops, too. That’s not far away either!
