Bright lights Swiss chard and kale

Great harvests on the farm this week! Folks have really enjoyed the full and half share-of-the-week we began offering last week. Maybe it’s the convenience of having us choose what to put in your share, maybe it’s the price, whatever the reason, we’re glad you’ve appreciated the option! :-)

Below is the list of produce currently available:


Share-of-the-week

Full Share: $15 (a diverse mix of currently available produce with approximately a $17-18 value)

Half Share: $10 (a diverse mix of currently available produce with approximately a $12 value)

We will have a trade basket available and you may trade a sack of produce from your share for another in the trade basket if you desire. Please note that the young greens will not typically be available in the shares.


Green onions: $1 for 1/4 lb. (usually around a dozen depending on the size),  1 lb for $3.00, 2 lbs. for $5.00

Green onions – patch run (minimally rinsed, nothing done with the green tops and may be in clumps with several green onions growing together) $1.25 per lb. 5 lbs. minimum order

Beet greens: (a few may have baby/small beets with the tops) $3.25 per lb. or $3.00 per lb. for 5+lbs.

Beet greens – patch run (no rinse or minimally rinsed with roots or baby/small beets) $2.00 per lb. 10 lbs. minimum order

Garlic: #1 quality  $5.50 for 1/2 lb.

Garlic 2nds: (small or have some cosmetic or other slight defect). $4.50 for 1/2 lb. or $8.00 per lb.  Please note that it will be best to plan on either using or preserving this garlic within the next couple to few weeks as I’m not sure how much longer it will store.

Small daikon radishes: (without tops) $1.75 for 8 oz. or $2.50 per lb.

Greetings from a well watered farm!

It has been a real blessing for the Lord to send the recent rains and things are starting to grow fast now!

We continue to have a beautiful, bountiful harvest of produce ready for harvest this next week! Let us know if you are interested in starting a group pick up in your city or town and we will put you in contact with other individuals who live in your area so you each can have a rotational schedule of who comes out to the farm to pick up the produce for your group each week.

We must have pre-orders in by 11 pm. prior to harvest days! We will be harvesting on Fridays and Tuesdays and you’re welcome to pick up your order anytime after 5 pm. Even the next day if that is better for your schedule.

Newly available items are: sage, leaf lettuce, weekly shares and I’ve been forgetting to mention we have a small amount of garlic still available.

Also be sure to check out the patch run specials on green onions, sage, beet greens and Swiss chard!

AT THE FARM: We will begin offering a “share of the week.” Place an order for a share of produce and we will select a nice, diverse variety of produce for you.

  • Full Shares which is enough produce to feed a family of four one week (if they really enjoy produce) $18-20 of produce for only $15
  • Half Shares which is geared more towards an individual or couple. Approximately $12 of produce for only $10.

We will also have a trade basket available and you may trade a sack of produce from your share for another in the trade basket if you desire. Please note that the young greens will not typically be available in the shares.

All produce is available first come first served. Continue reading »
