2017 Already! Time flies. I hope all of you had a wonderful Holiday season and New Year. My wife and I recently found out we are having another baby boy. This is exciting news. The farm continues to change and grow in ways I never knew it could. It always seems to adapt to life circumstances and continues! This is going to be a great year. The farm has more garlic growing than ever before. It is doing great and was planted last fall. I am looking forward to the many scapes we will receive this summer.

In February of this month I will be attending several hydroponics seminars to access the viability for the Farm. I am very excited about this opportunity as I love to learn new things. I would like to think that most of you would come see me in the winter time if I had this incredible lettuce 😉 Some of our staff that are returning from last year are Carly- C.S.A. Lead and Tiffany Bass, my sister who helps with the retail side. Of course I will be there as well! 🙂
