Piglets coming soon!

Josh on his way to set up a new fence for our expecting sows. The backpack basket works great for carrying large amounts of fence posts while keeping the hands free for pounding them in. Our sows are due the first few weeks of september, we'll have three litters available for sale. Email us for

CSA Week # 3

One of the stranger things we grow here on the farm is rice. We built 7 rice paddies a few years ago that cover about an acre of our hillside. We have never planted the whole thing to rice and this year won’t be any different. We are trying a tighter plant spacing, which in

The start of the CSA season

It’s a strange phenomenon. Some how the 6 months between CSA seasons just flies by, but at the same time the winter this year seemed like it would never end. I’m not sure how that works but we are very glad to have some sunny warm days after all the cold and gray. That being

Still snowless…

Still no snow, but it's been great for building projects. It rained/sleeted/iced thursday/friday so we spent those days inside working on our seed orders.
