It is already spring! What a winter it has been. Lots of cold weather and a little bit of snow….but now the daffodils are in bloom, the yacon has been potted, the summer vegetables have been started and are popping up in the cozy greenhouse.
We also have lots of babies! New chicks are growing fast and two sets of triplets are enjoying the spring sunshine! Such a fun sight to watch them all explore their new worlds!
The farm has also been "under construction"! New septic tank and plans for a new "check-out" area. The old building has been removed and the area is ready for the beautiful new clean space. We are so excited for our new season with a clean, new check out area to display our summer produce and local goodies. Stay tuned for update...
We are also excited to expand our farm offerings to include goat meat and rabbit meat. Please see the new page providing a bit more detail about the benefits of these two meat offerings.
Our first major event of the season will take place the first weekend in May! We hope to see you at the Spring Garden Fair held at the Canby Fair Grounds, May 3-4 2014. This is a great time to re-connect with old friends and meet lots of new ones!
