Balances Due June 1st  If you have a balance due you should have received your invoice in the mail, along with your invitation. Please lend us a hand by turning in your remaining balances by the due date. This lets us focus on the important work of planting, weeding, and more, instead of the office work. Thank you in advance!

Fresh From the Farm

Farmer Shenanigans Peas, potatoes, carrots, beets, spinach, lettuce, kohlrabi, cabbage, kale, onions, shallots, garlic, leeks, rhubarb, strawberries and asparagus are growing in the field! It's sure greening up and taking shape. Beans should be germinating any time. As the chance for frost dwindles more and more gets planted.

Orchard Shenanigans Robots have taken over the orchard! Okay, I watch too much sci-fi. Ryan Nosbush is doing a time-lapse photography project at the orchard - sweet! But he did really put a robot out there :P
Barnyard Shenanigans Piglets!! We can see and feel them kicking. Bellies are dropping further. Within the next week we will be welcoming new life to the farm!
