That time of the year again. Fall carrots have been seeded. Flame weeding kills the little weeds that have germinated before the carrots pop through the ground.

Last load of garlic out of the field Friday afternoon. Great harvest. Now I believe I’ll plant buckwheat as a cover crop in the open ground. That should make for some delicious honey in 8 weeks.

Garlic harvest has begun. First time ever in June. Quite early. But beautiful crop this year.

Rigged up a couple of flame throwers on the back of the cultivation tractor. The tractor gets all the weeds between the rows. But sometimes misses a few in the row. This will burn them off without hurting the garlic crop.

Got the last of the cabbage harvested today. We just keep getting beautiful days to put up these crops. A little bitter sweet though, it was the last crop I got to harvest with my father, Daniel. He is missed greatly but I'm happy to follow in the footsteps he left.

Normally the carrot harvesting consists of many layers of clothing and warm gloves. Today, no mud, no warm gloves, but perhaps some sweat. What a day, and with so many helpers. 4 generations in the field today! A beautiful thing.

Fun new trial on the farm. We made a three row flame weeder. It burns the germinated weeds just before the carrots emerge. The key is timing. It take carrots about 7 days to germinate, so i burned the rows on day 5. Doing every other bed, to see the difference. The top picture is flamed and the bottom wasn't. Pretty cool how well it worked.

MAP is working with Seeding Resilience to get fresh food on dinner tables of Buffalo households in need. How does this work?! First, we harvest up all of the gorgeous collards and kale we have in our fields at MAP. Then we call up our best friends at Promised Land CSA at Oles Family Farm, Groundwork Market Garden, Produce Peddlers Inc., Cornerstone Orchards LLC, Thorpes Organic Family Farm, and Sunset Fruit and Vegetable to gather the beautiful produce they have on hand. We make quick work of some volunteers to get it all ready for Urban Fruits & Veggies to pick up. We send it out on Urban Fruits & Veggie's truck, along with tasty fresh soups we prepared at our Farmhouse for folks observing Ramadan. Next, this food travels quickly down the road to Feed Buffalo. The kind folks at Feed bag it up with dry goods, Halal meat, bread, and more and start contacting folks who need support. Then it trickles off on Queen City Couriers bicycles and in volunteer cars to homes across Buffalo, just in time to prep the evening family meal. Any excess produce is scooped up by food banks and shelters. Nothing is wasted! It's an effort by many and it's all possible thanks private funding Seeding Resilience receives, patient and generous volunteers, simple technology like Whatsapp, and robust food system networks such as Greater Buffalo Urban Growers and Produce Peddlers Inc. who connect us with the most important link of all-- farmers! We *really* are all in this together. It's truly wonderful to see, thanks to beautiful photos and videos by Drea D'Nur of Feed Buffalo. Check out their latest post below. You can hear the excitement and practically smell the freshness! We are so happy to be a part of this collaboration and glad to share some behind the scenes food system stuff with our Facebook family. To learn more about our partnership with Seeding Resilience, check out: http://foodsystemsplanning.ap.buffalo.edu/seedingresilience/ **This effort is privately funded through Seeding Resilience and supporting small farms the best way we know how-- by buying produce! If you are a producer and would like to contribute, please contact our Markets Director by emailing your farm info, phone number and price list to [email protected]. We can even pick up!

1 week from today we are joining forces with restaurants around the area to support Promised Land CSA at Oles Family Farm. 20% of our sales from both Taco Factories are heading straight to Promised Land. And if you can't make it out that day, below is a link to the GoFundMe page. https://www.gofundme.com/f/donate-to-promised-land-in-honor-of-daniel-oles?utm_medium=email&utm_source=product&utm_campaign=p_email%2B2300-co-team-welcome&fbclid=IwAR0Ovu3HiefNGpPam_bAxtpdJeof_n9W6VBNznfZ-3u5Lg_NzGZWITKrgIA
Our Toutant and Dobutsu teams have a lot of dishes and happy guests to thank Dan Oles and his family for. We have been buying and loving the bounty of their hard work for years. This year will be especially difficult for the family farm, after Dan's recent sudden passing, as his wife and son continue the business without his leadership, teamwork, labor and love. If you love local produce like we do and are able, please consider donating to the honor fund below. The proceeds will go directly to the family to aid them in getting the farm up and running for this quickly arriving growing season! They do have an AMAZING CSA you can buy also! check it out at Promised Land CSA at Oles Family Farm ! We will also be participating in the Good Grace fundraiser from both restaurants so if you can't donate to the GoFundMe, then perhaps you can visit Toutant or Dobutsu or any one of our partner restaurants on March 19, to help us do it our way! Thank you very much!! Here are some easy ways to support the Oles family in Daniel’s honor: 1. Buy a CSA share from Promised Land ! A year of amazing organic produce is a blessing for the farm as well as you and your family. 2. Donate to this GoFundMe drive, even $5 will help. 3. On March 19, 2020, dine at one of many participating WNY restaurants. Each restaurant will donate a percentage of its day’s sales to Promised Land. Good Grace: WNY Chefs Celebrate Daniel Oles will give the region a chance to celebrate Daniel’s servant leadership and indefatigable dedication to our community. #LOCAL #farmers #nofarmsnofood #buffalove #community
