Trying to stay cool? Seems we are getting a more normal growing season topped off with a nice heat wave.....so we are eagerly getting ready for the 2013 season. Lots of new beginnings this year with new residents in the farm house, a new batch of laying hens and several sets of goat twins.
It appears that we will have another great blueberry season and the gardens are doing well. Tomatoes provided their first precious fruit, peppers are ready to harvest, potatoes growing strong, beans, peas, cukes and squash a bit further behind.
We are busily harvesting currents and the daily harvests of strawberries......unfortunately we are sorry that we were still unable to meet the demand for organic strawberries and we will continue to expand the strawberry beds.
We hope to open for U-Pick Blueberries and seasonal fruit and vegetables the second weekend of July....stay tuned as we will provide an update here as well as updating our voicemail message at 503.632.0462.
Our first batch of chickens are currently for sale and we are taking orders for the late fall batch of chickens and rabbits, as well as goat meat which should be available in September. Please let us know if you have any interest as it will help in our planning
We continue to be members of the Tri-County Farms
and Mollala Farm Loop
! The Tri-County Farm brochure is a great resource for u- pick and ready pick farms in the area. Tri-County Farm Fresh Produce Guides will be available at the farm and various cummunity locations throughout the season. The Mollala Farm Loop features farms and local businesses in the area that provide an interesting rural experience for those who want to take a little time to explore the area. We will be sharing events through out the season and will provide updates of Farm Loop events as well.
Our 2013 season will include Lemon Grass, blueberry and lingonberry plants, Yacon plants, U-Pick Blueberries, cherries and blackberries as the season and weather allows. We are also currently selling free-range organic eggs. During our season we will be offering our veggie and fruit surpluses, along with cut flowers, lavendar and other local products.
In addition to the farm products, we will continue to have local glassware, local honey, bee pollen and local jams.
Please continue to check in via this website or via our telephone message machine for current product information, farm events and schedules.
As always we are actively seeking volunteers and community members who might want to get involved in our efforts here at the farm and in our community! what your are interested in!
