Spring is here and thereís lots happening at Moonridge Farms this time of year!
are budding, daffodils are spreading their color across the fields, new baby goats are healthy and playing in the fields, and the yacon
are waking up!
We are currently selling
yacon tubers, which are the edible part of the plant. These are a great source of natural sugar for smoothies and green drinks, and great addition to winter salads! They taste like a mildly, sweet, juicy jicama!
Also, itís planting time for the yacon crowns.
We are currently shipping yacon crowns for your home garden planting. Since most of the US is under a blanket of snow and experiencing frigid temperatures, we are likely to be shipping yacon starts to most of our customers. If you are in a temperate climate now and interested in crowns for planting your own yacon, please place your order now as we will only likely have crowns available for the next two weeks.
The crowns are actively sending shoots and are now being planted in gallon pots to accommodate the generous sized crowns we offer!
We are now taking pre-orders for yacon starts that will be shipped when it is safe to do so without risk of freezing. Please check out our website and send us an email or call if you have questions about growing yacon!
While in South America, we had the fortune to meet a lovely organic farmer who is also growing yacon and other medicinal plants. We were so thrilled and impressed by their farm and their products, we are offering their three of their teas at the farm. Please check out the new web page describing the bagged herbal teas from Emerald Herbs that we are offering
, in addition to our own certified organic bulk yacon tea.
We currently have organically raised goat meat
, rabbit meat
, and fryer chickens also available for sale. Try something special
for your spring holidays! Let us know
if you have any questions or need ideas for preparation!
We are also stocked with bee products and local honey
for the spring allergy season!
Mark your calendars for the Spring Garden Show in Canby, Oregon the first weekend in May! The event will be held at the Canby Fair Grounds on May 2-3rd, 2015! We will be selling our yacon starts and other organic plant starts at the show. It is a wonderful time to re-connect and enjoy all the fun of a huge gardening event!
