April 2016 Newsletter

From Helen: Most of the babies have arrived. We are still getting a calf here and there but most have been born. We should have a baby donkey any day now.

We are starting CSA vegetable deliveries this week. We will be harvesting cool season vegetables for a few weeks along with new potatoes and green onions. Yellow squash and zucchini is almost ready.

March Newsletter

March has been a weird month as far as weather goes. We got really hot really early. Spring caught us by surprise. I never thought we would want rain again but it turned off dry.

November Newsletter 2014

November Newsletter Things are finally starting to slow down on the farm. We have finished the Pumpkin Patch and the Fall Harvest Dinner. We had more people than ever at the Pumpkin Patch this year. We set record numbers on at least 2 days. I felt like I was driving a hayride tractor in my sleep. We only had one day that the school field trips got backed up. We're always glad when the field trips go smoothly. So season number 13 of the Pumpkin Patch is in the books now. This was the 7th year for the Fall Harvest...
