Hi everyone! Shew the weather is just silly this year isn't it? Not enough rain, then too much rain, too hot too early, late hard frost and the list goes on. It has been a very rough growing season! Summer items are coming to an end sadly. Cucumbers are done for the year. Yellow squash, patty pan squash and round zucchini are all really slowing down. But....the fall ornamentals are beginning to be ready.

A word of warning to all visitors. We gladly like to see visitors here at the farm. But absolutely no one is to go in the big barn by themselves or into the larger fields by themselves. Nothing has happened but, cows startle easily around strangers and could hurt a small child pretty badly this is a concern to me. I will never turn anyone away that wants to come visit! As far as being in the fields, that is never a problem either except, we have had a very bad deer problem this year which in turn has caused the coyotes to begin coming around again. The coyotes are now "running" during the daytime and have come less than 50 feet from myself. This alarms me and I put this warning out there out of concern for our customers that may be wanting to search for wild edibles. Please let us know you are coming I would never, never want to see anyone get hurt here, but also want people to know there are dangers to being in the woods at times.

CSA Summer Shares Week 8

This weeks shares to include:

large tomatoes
cherry tomatoes
sweet corn
carrots
cabbage
onions

Week 7 Summer CSA Shares 2015

Posted on August 5, 2015 at 6:19 AM Comments comments ()
This weeks shares to include:

Tomatoes
Cucumbers
8 Ball zucchini
Garlic
Red Romaine
Sweet Corn


It has been a very dry week, awaiting rain so we don't lose the majority of our herbs would be great. The sweet corn has done well even if it did take an exceptionally long time this year.

The large red beefsteak tomatoes were not grown here on our farm, instead they are from Lakeview Organic which is an amish Certified Organic farm located in fillmore/Centerville NY area. The cherry tomatoes are grown here on our farm. After our terrible case of late blight last year we opted not to grow the large ones to give that area of the field a "break" and has been left "fallow" this year, meaning it has been left empty.

Again, more not so good news, the deer have gotten into the purple cauliflower and it will not be available this year, as it is too late to replant it. (it takes about 6 weeks to start them indoors and then another 8-9 weeks to grow outside). Although we did get the DEC nuisance permits they have still done a lot of damage. Current estimate around $6000.00 worth of damage, sigh.

The high tunnel has been replanted for fall items, to be expected starting in about a month! I look forward to having our fresh greens again.

Week 6 summer CSA shares 2015

Posted on July 28, 2015 at 9:52 PM Comments comments ()
I guess I have given up on "recovering" the template I previously used for making the weekly newsletters. I just don't have the time right now to figure out what has gone wrong, I am sorry.

This week is set to include:

cucumbers
tomatoes
pattypan squash
yellow squash
regular zucchini
8 ball zucchini
kale
swiss chard
beets
Homemade jams
Cage free/free range brown eggs
green beans
red potatoes


It has been a rough growing season this year, but we are still hanging tough. Although the fields are very dry right now, we are able to keep up with irrigation right now every morning and every evening.  The deer have been brutal, so far with our DEC nuisance permits, we have eliminated 3 deer thanks to the help of hunter friends.

Look forward to a continued good season. Thank you everyone!

Week 5 CSA Summer Shares 2015

Hi everyone!

Week 5 is set to include the following:

cucumber
tomato
regular zucchini
8 ball zucchini
green beans
potatoes
swiss chard


The fields are looking great, except for the deer damage. We applied for and received nuisance permits from the DEC this week thankfully to help get the damage under control.

It is looking promising for the first round of corn to be ready in next weeks share as will be enough pattypan squash.

Hoping everyone is enjoying the season so far! The pumpkin patch is looking TERRIFIC! It is only two acres but will be a pick your own area this year, kids will love it!
