Did somebody say GARLIC?

We got great feedback about our garlic last year and decided to plant a lot more for this year. We just finished our garlic harvest digging over 2300 heads of garlic! Everyone is a little sore but it feels good to see all that delicious garlic. We won't sell all of our garlic once it is done curing (drying) we will sort it and save the best heads for planting in the fall. Through this process we gradually select the best garlic that is better suited to our soils and climate.

Nice article about CSAs in the USA

This is a nice article that explains what a CSA is and does a farm and its customers. We'd echo the sentiments of one of the farmer's quoted in the article: “There’s always pressure on. This is a complicated business, growing so many crops." We grow over 120 varieties with a limited crew, but we're dedicated to the idea that producing for our CSA is important for us, our customers, our environment and our sustainability as a business.
