Summer planting on the left, fall planting on the right. Although we’re on a break in between the CSA seasons (summer & fall), the farm team is hard at work weeding, planting, and getting ready for the start of the next season. The CSA starts up again next week, and we’re pumped to fill the shares with winter squash, garlic, beans, tomatoes, and more.

It’s the last week of our summer CSA season. You can see that Otis, the farm pup, was instrumental to making sure our bagging process was smooth and efficient 😂. As we look back on the past twelve weeks, we are very grateful for all the CSA members who trusted us to provide them with high quality and nutritious produce. We’re ending one season, and preparing to make the next season even better.

Charlotte Henderson (She/Her)

One of the great parts of farming is the people you meet along the way. Charlotte has been with the farm for three years but has become so integral that I can’t imagine her not being here (although when she constantly ridicules me I do think it might be refreshing 🙂 Check out this fantastic article about her and farmers like her that give their blood sweat and tears to make operations like ours tick! https://notourfarm.org/2021/08/06/charlotte-henderson-she-her/

Charlotte has been farming on other people’s farms for 6 years. She is in her 3rd season at the same farm in Maryland. I co-manage a 34-acre farm in Dickerson, Maryland, although we grow on 7 acre…

One Acre Farm is actually 34 acres. We grow on about 6-7 acres, rotating fields and sections of the farm so fields get to rest under cover crop. The remainder that is not lawn, about 25 acres, is wooded and rarely touched by a weedwhacker or mower. Beneficial insects, pollinators, hawks, songbirds, owls, and foxes have been able to make One Acre home because of these conservation practices. The creek that runs through the property has a wide riparian buffer of woodland, preventing erosion and maintaining stream health. Supporting local and sustainable farms helps keep the place you live in healthier. It’s pretty, too.

"...the fate of local farms is a metaphor about the fate of the environment if we don’t support it." A story by Multimedia Mavericks from Georgetown University about One Acre Farm. Reading this, especially the facts accompanying the picture slideshow, even us farmers learned about farming.

Thank you Multimedia Mavericks for coming out to the farm and *listening*. You really got the essence of this farm. And thank you to Sarah Denhardt Cissna for your great contribution! Well said.

Green Tomatoes, what to do with you?

We've got a bunch of storage tips and recipes up on the blog. Most recent, GREEN TOMATOES.

You may be familiar with the iconic film, "Fried Green Tomatoes" with an all-star female cast. One of the ways the characters connect is by making and eating fried green tomatoes, a heart warming and belly warming dish. But that's not all you can do with a green tomato in your midst. You can add the...

One doesn’t normally find fresh onions in the supermarket. Part of eating LOCAL is that you get the FRESHEST you can possibly get. Our CSA members get the special treat if receiving fresh onions in their shares this week. It’s a double whammy, not only can one use the globe of the onion as a regular onion, the tender green shoots can be used like scallions. A nice addition to many a meal! Blog post about it just up.

Not all heroes wear capes. Today I could not figure something out and called @susan_jamison33 (technically Robert) for help via phone. Instead, he drove over and walked me through it step by step, in person! Even gave me a formula. That’s like having a CPA in April take time to explain tax law. We are so lucky to have such farmers in our region who care enough to teach the #nextgenerationfarmer

Some people can make a really good guesstimate of spacing for planting. Some people just have that knack. But others, like us, realllly need help planting equidistant. That’s where this *dibbler* comes in. This super cool tool from @twobadcatsllc allows us to plant by hand, and do it in a neat precise manner. It’s quick, easy, and efficient. We love it. We would’ve never know about it if it wasn’t for talking with incredible fellow farmers that are always willing and open to share their experiences and advice. Thank you, @footprintfarm 🥰. Mentorship, learning, and sharing is so important in this adventure.

This Sunday we’ll be inviting people on to the farm for the first tour since 2019. We’re excited to share how we grow, what we grow, and what we do. This butterhead lettuce is a gorgeous example of what we’ll have for sale, as well. We can even point you to the exact spot it was harvested from. This is an opportunity to learn and eat well!

One Acre Farm's 2021 CSA is open for Enrollment! We hope it's going to be our best year, yet!
Thank you, American Farmland Trust!
Big fans of the carrots today!
We were big fans of the carrots in yesterday’s share!
I used half of my squash from last week’s share to make these, and they’re delicious!! Recipe: https://www.marthastewart.com/1541484/zucchini-dill-pickles
How can I join the group
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!
