A Quick Update from the Farm

We’ve been busy here at the farm planning for the 2018 season.  We’ll be offering a limited number of Vegetable CSA shares for 2018 and will be sending out details as it gets closer to January.  If you’re interested in learning more before then, email us for details. The young hens are starting to lay…

Welcome to Autumn

We’ve been busy as we change seasons – ended with a decent amount of veggies even though we didn’t get the garden planted until late.  Definitely learned some lessons to apply to next year, especially as it relates to insect and weed pressure. The rototiller runs again (huzzah!) and it’s been used to get the…

July update

I have been slacking with my posting duties being too busy with everything that's been going on around here. We finally fenced in the fruit trees, expanding the area so we may add blueberry bushes in the Spring. Now we won't have to battle the elk to keep them from stripping our trees bare. The…

Thankfully, the…

We had a day without rain!

We are way behind where we had hoped to be this spring because of all the rain we’ve had. Good news is, we got the tractor out of the mud. We also made some progress with the elk fence and hope to finish before the end of April. We are using tarps for weed control…

Mid-Winter Update

Happy New Year and Welcome 2017! Well, we made it through the freezing temps (was 9 F here yesterday AM) and so did the chickens.  The new pullets are growing nicely in their new home.  I built them a new coop inside an existing barn.  I plan on adding more space for more birds an…
