 What's Happening at the Farm?

Our list of organic farm veggies is almost full! Eggplant, cabbage, fennel are all added this week. Everyone is asking where the tomatoes are... They are coming! Very slow this year with the cool and cloudy weather, but we are hoping to start picking a few soon. We'll be hoping for a long autumn without any frost. The peppers are also taking their time showing up for us.

The garlic harvest continues... If you can help, we will be harvesting Monday through Friday this week to finish the job. Send us a note!

You will notice something new on our online order form – It is now all on one page, without the tabs for different categories. It will make it quicker for ordering. Also, you now receive immediate confirmation of your order by email.  Please read through the new instructions in the "On-Line Order Form" area at the bottom of this page.
