Over the years, I have realized you can’t make anyone do anything. They have to want to do it. So I’m not interested in educating the public any more why I think it’s important to support and eat nutritious food grown at our farm. You either get it or don’t. (That sounds rude, and I don’t mean it that way at all!)

So I can only get our name out about who we are, and hope you will want to learn more.

Quick gut instinct poll

After scheduling a meeting w a county council member, he walked in and said he was too busy and I was to meet with his chief of staff.

Should I be offended?

My gut tells me yes, but also, who am I to be offended. Maybe he was just busy.

Horrible picture I know, but it was really a neat experience hearing Senator Ben Cardin speak today at our local agricultural office about problems that all Maryland farmers face. Not to often can you hear someone who has a say in how our country is governed live and in person.

All going to Manna Food Center today.
60 pounds of cauliflower
150 brussel sprouts
300+ pounds of rutabagas and turnips
And collards!

Want to support this year long effort of growing food for manna? Consider donating to manna by clicking here:

Dedicate it to “one acre farm” and it will allow us to continue growing beautiful food for such a great organization. Since 2014, our farm has grown and delivered over 20,000 pounds of locally grown produce to Manna. Not bad for a small farm!

Hey! Want to see this exact same pic on Instagram? I’m sure you do which is why for some reason I had to start an instagram page. Same crap there, new platform. With that awesome intro, here is the new place to find pics. Like you need another reason to stare at your phone some more!

This Month in Bloom: Cured Bloom, Blooming Sunflowers, and More

With all the problems we will face w our climate and food production, if like to see more emphasis on proving that this product can and should be used to grow food.

It’s too good to pass up!

And no, I get not benefit from this company by making these statements, I just truly believe taking a waste product and making food out of it is what we need to be doing.

Now normally I wouldn’t share this, but this is farming to its core. On the hottest day of the year my pump breaks.
Keep in mind I hate the feeling of the bottom of a pond, literally my biggest fear.
But here I am 20 min ago for the 4th time in 30 minutes, trying to set the fixed pipe back in the bucket so it won’t suck up sludge.

If my wife had asked me to go into the pond for her diamond necklace, I’d have said, we will get another one.

If you recall a few months ago (And frankly how can you not recall all the amazing insight I have shared on this page ) you’ll remember me putting down DCWATERANDSEWERAUTHORIZATION product called bloom.

Here half of the small sunflower field got the bloom, where the other section didn’t.

Notice how amazing this product works.

We will have a hard time feeding people in the near future. Perhaps we should look harder at a waste product that performs as well as any thing I have seen before. And from a endless resource. Our own waste. Not for food yet, but one day it might just have to be.

I can’t watch it,(I can’t stand listening to myself) and I cannot recall one thing I said so hope I don’t come off too much of a fool

How can we make more sustainable choices at the grocery store or farmers market? This is the question that inspired Environmental Leaders Kristin Sequiera and Mariana Pennybacker to make a documentary about sustainable agriculture, animal husbandry, and GMOs and pesticides as part of their Spring Conservation Project.

Here is a almost full pallet of cabbage we harvested in less than an hour yesterday.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t drop it off to the food center this time, but I found a great alternative!

Geppetto Catering will be picking it up Monday and making coleslaw and sauerkraut for me to give out to my members, very excited to see how it turns out!

Sooo many stuffed peppers with squash, tomatoes, eggplant, and ground turkey.
What are you making for dinner with your #CSAFarm veggies from @oneacrefarm? Bucatini with zucchini, red onions, shallots, and garbanzo beans finished with grated fresh Parmesan and smoked olive oil.
Stuffed peppers from our 1AF haul of green and purple peppers. Soooooo yummy!
Gazpacho made from One Acre Farm veggies!
Oh, look! I'm using my compostable produce bag from One Acre Farm to gather up my vegetable trim as I make soup. Once I'm done chopping and peeling, the whole bundle can go into my compost heap. Thanks, Farmer Mike!
