One night we go to sleep and Thanksgiving is approaching, one morning we wake up and it is almost Valentines day! The concept of hibernation makes so much sense, now. The Christmas holidays came and went here on the farm with lots of fun with family and friends. The Farmer and Farmer's Son have kept the animals fat and happy, making sure everyone has an abundance of food and shelter during the occasional cold spells. Two new calves were born, giving us the prospect of  plenty of Spring dairy products. The acquisition of a new herd sire for the cows and a buck for the milking does sets our minds at ease and relieves the pressure of trying to determine the breeding cycles of the girls for artificial insemination. A guy is gonna do what a guy does..... and he usually knows just when to do it! Preparations are being made for Spring planting. The Farmers Son is planting seed trays in the grow house, the fields are plowed, the addition of another hoop house is being planned. Strawberries are being harvested in the berry hoop house, as well as some rhubarb.  Chocolate dipped strawberries will be featured in the market for Valentines Day. Plans for the CSA are under way. Applications will be available at the end of the month of February. More information will be posted. There will be two pickup days this year, Tuesday and Thursday. The market has been busy this winter, thanks to all of our loyal, dedicated, die hard customers. Products available have been cow milk, goat milk, yogurt, kefir, buttermilk, honey, ground beef, preserves, bath and body items, home made baked goods, and our newest obsession, food storage for the preppers. Our motto " Plant it, Pick it, Preserve it... one way or another". Our market hours are Friday and Saturday from noon until 4 PM. Call ahead for availability if larger quantity needed, as we sell out every weekend. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
