Spring Csa

      CSA basket going out for delivery

As part of our 2013 winter CSA program we are offering spring baskets this year. So this week is officially kicking off the start to our very busy season. 
This week we have Rainbow Chard, lettuce,onions and radishes on offer. We are looking forward to next week when we will have our first snow peas of the season!

There are lots of blossoms starting to show up on our new apple trees as well which is very exciting. It's nice to see that they are growing well. 

Due to the unseasonably cool weather we have been having this year things are a little behind. This means that crops that we have planted have been sitting mostly dormant over the past number of weeks. 
Luckily the weather seems to be improving and we are finally starting to see some growth. 

We are looking forward to the upcoming season and look forward to serving up some delicious veggies b

Getting Ready

It is getting to be that time of year when you start to see blossoms and dream of fresh food.  This of course means that we are already in the midst of planting both in the greenhouse and outside. In just a few weeks we will be dishing out the first of the spring vegetables to our CSA customers. Despite a cold start to the season we have a bumper crop of swiss chard and peas and radishes are both well on there way
The landscape is changing a little bit this year on the farm as we have planted a small apple orchard which will hopefully start producing meagerly next year. We are also adding strawberries and rhubarb but they will not make an appearance until next year. It is exciting to see the farm taking shape
