CSA Week 20.

How are we here already? At the close of another CSA season? This season went fast. Faster than ever before. And yes, I know I say that every year, and in fact they all have gone by quite quickly. But each year, we grow our business a little more and each year it seems to […]

CSA Week 19.

We hit a major milestone last week. No, not our third wedding anniversary, something that feels more monumental than that: Kyle finished digging the potatoes!!!!!!!!!!! When we set out to grow 1200 feet of potatoes this year, we thought we would purchase a potato digger attachment for our rototiller to make the digging mechanized and […]

CSA Week 18.

Sometime in the last month while I wasn’t paying attention, I transitioned from vegetable grower to vegetable hustler and farm event planner. All of our transplanting wrapped up about a month ago and weeding has become a useless and non-essential task. Weed pressure becomes much lower in the fall and since all our vegetables crops […]

CSA Week 17.

Welcome to another week of prime September veggies. Of summer meets fall. Of brassicas paired with nightshades. Of onions and leeks alongside beautiful root veggies. We hope you survived the weekend somewhere cool. With waning farm tasks and a wedding across the country, we spent much of the last week in Washington D.C. and Virginia– […]

CSA Week 16.

It’s been quite the exciting week out on the farm. On Wednesday morning, a culvert was delivered to the farm along with three to four dump-truck loads of gravel that came together to form a driveway. A driveway that leads straight to our farm and our fields and not only gives us a beautiful view […]

CSA Week 15.

Things have been a bit crazy over here. Usually the transition to fall feels more, I don’t know, relaxed. You know, something to be savored around campfires, watching football, looking up at the stars,¬†or dreaming of all the fun September flavors like leeks, potatoes and dark leafy greens bumping up with summer favorites like tomatoes, […]

CSA Week 14

Alright everyone, time to get real. We, your loyal and enthusiastic farmers, who for 13 weeks have not disappointed or let you down (hopefully) have had our first major crop failure. And it’s a crop you adore. And the same thing happened last year. And we are so very truly apologetic. As we began to […]

CSA Week 13.

Let’s take a break from the fields because by now we all really know what’s going on out there: harvest tomatoes, haul in winter squash and potatoes, continue curing the onions (we’re almost done!!!), harvest beans, seed fall crops, seed cover crop, etc, etc. The pictures in this week’s newsletter will be your update of […]

CSA Week 12.

Can you believe it?! We got away from the farm for a whole 72 hours last week in celebration of Kyle’s birthday! Thanks to an amazing crew of employees and worker shares, we were able to work ahead early in the week and then entrust the tomato harvest and restaurant delivery to Natalie while we […]
