A big huge thank you needs to go out this morning to everybody who came out to one of my many mushroom log workshops over the past month! 🍄 🪵

Especially to Kevin and Sherri Kukuchka at Creekside Gardens for hosting the last two weekends in Tunkhannock. Some fun events at a beautiful setting, and I still find it hard to believe that so many people want to come out and listen to me talk about mushrooms, mycelium and trees 😂

I look forward to getting back to do it again in the future —TO

Flipping garden beds & getting ready for summer crops

Harvested the last of the winter lettuce this morning and then flipped the bed for summer crops. (In the cooler this wknd: 🥬)

We had hoped to get tomatoes and cucumbers in the ground sooner than this, but thankfully Wiles Valley Weather has been telling us for awhile now that we were due for another cold snap in late April. Below 30 degrees up here on the hill in Ridgebury for the next few nights...just as Nater called.

Let this pass and then we’ll get some of those heat lovers planted and see what they do 🥒 🍅

Switchel: supports so many things! We drink some after long work days (so everyday 😂) electrolyte replenishment and inflammation support
First aid salve: for almost any boo boo you may have - it doesn’t sting at all it feels like your healing the moment you (Or your three year old) put it on!
All of these teas: taste great and support what they are names to support (women’s tea is my favorite)
Lavender and honey syrup: supports taste and smell 👃

*Monday thoughts from Liz 😊*

Tim and I have been at this thing for about 6 years now. Every year we call it year 1. Every year we learn so much. We have lots of failures along with little successes here and there. The little wins keep us coming back for more!

Ask us? We say it’s the mushrooms, garlic and greens that keep us intrigued.

It is hard to tell the whole story as to how we got here and why. It is a path that has gone up and down, with twists and turns along the way.

The opportunity to watch Tim teach multiple groups of people about this big world of mushrooms is really just the icing on the cake. I am grateful to this community for welcoming us and showing interest in something that we are passionate about.

We have had the pleasure of meeting people who are just as interested in learning about what we are slowly, but surely working on.

Well, hello there...

Tim and Liz Owen, here – aka Growen Food, and this is gonna be our story of putting good in, getting good out on our family land in the hills of northern tier Pennsylvania. Follow along as we share pictures, video and updates from the farm and be the first to join our Growen community.

We have been gradually getting back into this farming thing for a few seasons now, on the property where Tim grew up and in the pastures where herds of beef cows grazed a couple decades ago. Maintaining the soil health as a top priority, we’re an organically-minded market garden located in north Bradford County. In addition to our evolving variety of vegetables, Growen’s specialty crop is gourmet mushrooms.

Seasonally, we cultivate shiitakes outdoors on hardwood logs, and we also grow a couple different species of oysters in a climate-controlled indoor environment. Our mushrooms are a delicious complement to our table of fresh greens, root veggies, tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers and more.

Each Friday until mid-October, we bring a selection of our harvest down to the Sayre (Pa.) Farmers Market at Elmer Park. Different vegetables may come and go with the time of the season, but our aim is to always have some mushrooms on the stand. If you’re unable to come see us in the park, we’re also available on the website Delivered Fresh, a service that provides weekly drop-offs at locations in Sayre, Troy, Wellsboro, Monroeton, Mansfield and East Smithfield. https://deliveredfresh.localfoodmarketplace.com/Producer/942dc849-6454-4a64-a6c7-15400b5a7363
