Bubblicious

Nope, not the gum.  But our hoophouses are once again quite bubblicious, meaning that enough snow, ice and grapple have been freed from the outer plastic to allow the air to flow once again between the 2 layers of plastic and create a protective bubble of air that helps snow slide and not build up.

A Very Green/Verde Day

  Kale Pesto, Spicy Pesto, Mojo Verde, Tomatillos & Salsa Verde….yep all in 1 day and they weren’t small batches. Over 30 lbs of greens and around 150 lbs of tomatillos. All in the effort to transform the fresh abundance of this season into bright, tasty options for the next season.   And it is such […]

Snow is Back with Pi Day Storm!

The snow is back, blanketing the farm…                             And the farmers took advantage of it…..                   And the farm dog apparently conquered us all in sledding.

Uncle!

The sun is getting so much stronger and days longer… but darn some of the days and lots of the nights have been severely cold! We’ve got some wonderfully bouncy and big goat kids but their early hours have required much more of us than usual. Lots of hypothermia bucket baths and blow dries and […]

When Millimeters Matter

What thrilling and tough weeks! We sent an abbreviated newsletter last week as we were without power, running what we could on the barn’s generator. We figured many of you were also out of power – some for more than a week. Yikes. We were relieved to get power back in time to host the […]
