Week 8 is upon with lots of heat. Some exciting things happening lately. In the store we have purchased a new freezer for our ever growing meat selection; and are proud to add Ford Family Short Horns to the meat selection.
Lately at the farm we have been incredibly busy. The farm is in a great spot and is finally starting to look really great consistently and we feel the same about the produce :). We have been working hard to harvest the veggies on time and clean the garden up at the same time. We have many tasks such as seeding, harvesting, weeding, and tilling that go on continually to maintain the health of the farm. So it’s always nice when we get to other projects. You will notice we are expanding one of the parking lots for the fall festival we have every year. Also if your wondering what those giant plants everywhere on the farm, they are pumpkins. They are growing great! The veggies are too and many more to come and many on deck.
