The Rhythm of Fall

Harvesting our organic Carrots at dusk

With the sun setting so early at this time of year, we’re planning our days carefully to make sure we have enough daylight to get everything done. Now we’re firmly in the fall rhythm of alternately harvesting and winterizing the fields. When we’re not digging Carrots or picking Kale or Broccoli, we’re packing up irrigation or tilling in preparation for cover crop seeding. And then when the daylight starts to fade, we’re treated to some excellent late fall sunsets.

Thanksgiving at the Farmstand

wired mag rockwell thanksgiving updatedThanksgiving is right around the corner and we’re so excited. This is our favorite holiday, hands down! As usual, we plan to pull out all the stops. If you’re cooking for Thanksgiving too, we hope your time in the kitchen feeds your soul, and whether you’re cooking or not, we hope your dinner is memorable, your vegetable side dishes are numerous, and your pants are extra stretchy.

Here’s what we’ll have available at the Farmstand in the week leading up to Thanksgiving:
