Happy New Year to our Family and Friends! We hope this finds you enjoying the cozy winter and entertaining dreams of spring planting and summer produce! We have lots to be thankful for right now! We would like to welcome a new farm family member to MoonRidge. Brooke started in December and is already a seasoned farm family member. The new used oil burner is working wonderfully and is a reliable heat source through this extra cold year! The greenhouse is starting to come alive with new beds and plans for the summer starts. We have completed the butchering of the current goat, rabbit and fryer chickens which are now ready for sale!
It is a busy time of year as we gear up for the next season, clean up and repair and complete the pruning of all the berry crops. We are hoping that this cold weather will have a hand in keeping the disease and bugs at bay again this year. The fields look great and we are hopeful that we will be able to continue to stay open for the season this year again with the abundant fruit set of all varietals on site.
We are also excited to expand our farm to include the offering of 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!
