Honeybee Heaven!!!

"When I grow up I want to be a big juicy peach!" We dodged the freezes and the frost, we survived the blustery winds and unless we get a hail storm or a wildfire, we should have some luscious peaches this season. If we can decide on an ice cream machine, the fresh peach ice cream will be a welcome treat on a hot summer day. The Farmer has had a busy week preparing the ground for the okra, corn and the melons. The next two weeks will be busy getting the rest of the crops in the ground, as the last frost date has passed. The old timers claim that there is usually one last frost before Easter, but as Easter is so late this year, we are going to throw caution to the wind and get it all in the ground. The potatoes are popping out of the soil, the broccoli is starting to head and the asparagus plants are giving it their all. Since nature has a way of doing things her way, we are only a little surprised at a variety of blackberry bushes that are already starting to bloom. The strawberries are looking sooooo fine. Next week picking information will be posted, our guidlines, prices, hours, etc. The market will have plenty of kefir, goat cheese, buttermilk etc. this weekend. Sorry we were so short last weekend, it was necessary to fill goat milk orders first, now the milk line has plenty of contributors, so there is plenty of milk for the other goodies. The cow milk is going to be a little slight for a little while, as LuLu is taking a sabatical while preparing to calve again. Poppy still has several weeks before she calves, so Godiva is trying to feed the masses with her daily offerings.  MARKET HOURS: Thurs. Fri. Sat. from noon until 4PM. We are available through the week if milk is needed, just call and we will set up a convenient time. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!
