With help from plans that we purchased online, I managed to put together a greens drier made from a washing machine. It can handle a lot more volume than our hand crank model and frees us up to tend to other things while the greens are spinning.

Our salad mix is available for purchase through producepeddlers.com as well as at our farm stand on Saturdays from 11-3. Check it out!

Raw honey inevitably crystallizes, and while a natural process, can make scooping and using it rather cumbersome. Say hi to Creamed Honey, a light, fluffy, super spreadable form of honey made by mixing crystallized and liquid honey together! And still 100% raw.

Our 12oz jars of creamed honey are available through Produce Peddlers.

Be safe. Eat well.

Where does your food come from? When planning on eating healthily, do you consider the origin of your produce? Our fruits and veggies are grown locally to ensure freshness and quality, but also to reduce the carbon footprint made by "traveling food". With minimal transport, we are creating a more sustainable food model and providing the best possible product. Eat well and support your local farmer!

Come this time of the year, our gears are already grinding planning the farm and ordering seeds. The promise of a new growing season brings us motivation in the late stages of winter. We reflect on what we enjoy growing, what produces well, what our members are looking for and then formulate our plan. Farm work starts long before the snow thaws!
