Sunny spring days make farm crops and farmers so happy! We’re still hard at work planting for this season and as we move across the farm, it’s so gratifying to see the farm coming back to life again. May and June are the most intensive planting months every year, so we’re out there all day every day getting seeds and seedlings in the ground.
Some of the earliest crops we planted in March are already ready for harvest, so part of the crew is out harvesting every morning while the air is still cool. Spring greens like Spinach and Lettuce, Kale and Salad mix, don’t care for the midday heat, so getting them out of the field before the sun gets too intense is always a priority. A little harvesting first thing in the morning is always a satisfying way to start the day.
We had a great opening weekend! Thank you to all who came by to say hi, stock up on spring veggies & seedlings, and pick tulips!
Our PYO Tulip field is bursting with color and blooms right now and this week looks to be our peak week for tulip picking. These beauties are seriously stunning, so don’t miss them.
At the Farmstand we have our own (very tasty, if we do say so ourselves) Salad Mix that is the star of the show now, plus other spring-time treats like asparagus, locally-foraged ramps & fiddleheads, and local cheeses and specialty mushrooms.
For Mother’s Day this weekend we have lots of options for showering your mom with flowers: graceful hanging flower baskets, colorful bedding plants, Flower CSA gift packs, and of course PYO tulips if you want some farm time with your mom.
Our Farmstand is open for retail shopping, or you can pre-order from our online store. Pre-orders can be picked up 12 – 6pm for orders placed the day before (Sunday orders pick up on Tuesday). For more info on pre-ordering, including how pickup works, and paying with SNAP/HIP, check our website.

Our Winter Farmers Market is back this Saturday (and every Saturday through April 24th) with an expanded lineup of vendors (a food truck with a rotating menu and an Italian pastamaker & baker!).
We’ll be under cover in our open-sided greenhouses, which keep us dry and warm-ish, but also provide plenty of air flow.
