What’s Fresh on the Farm

2023 - An Infrastructure Year

This year has turned out differently than we had anticipated. Last fall we took down our perimeter fence in order to combine our expansion area with the original area that we grew in. The original fence also needed improvement in order to effectively keep the deer out. This spring we began work on putting up a new and improved deer fence and thought we’d be done in time to plant a full complement of produce. Well, we ended up working on our new fence well into July. So, unfortunately, we didn’t manage to get most of our early crops planted. We have, however, planted some crops for the fall and we’ll have a nice harvest of garlic, including a new variety.

So, good things are coming down the road!
