You know what’s the worst? SPRING heavy wet snow! Ugh. And, yes, that is @erinhyman29 trying to crawl under heavy ass reemay to lift up hoops. We just have to wait it out and see what doesn’t get crushed.

Playing with our new flame weeder from @neversinkfarmtools to prepare the ground for carrots. Basic idea is to burn the tiny baby weeds to get ahead of them for tiny crops, like carrots.
Feedback so far is that, like most farm tools, it is built for broad shouldered tall people (also not great for our super rocky beds…) But, we strong ass ladies and we got it done! @erinhyman29 @maddiewithie @katiessomewhere

There is so much potential in this room! This is where all your spring vegetables start- tucked away in a very warm germination room. This coaxes the seeds out of the ground before they head to the big greenhouse to get growing! And so begins another season…

There are myriad reasons we feel lucky to be farmers and I hope the recent shortages give folks pause. How does your food actually get to you? Think from the farmer sowing seeds to the person stocking the grocery shelves. So. Many. Steps. What can we do? choose a local CSA or support the tons of amazing #loudounfarms farm [email protected] @springhousefarm @wheatlandspring @stoneybrookfarm @lostcornerfarm @longstonefarm @pvfwest

Really enjoying this beautiful beginning to 2022! Our livestock dogs are thrilled- the chickens? Not so much. We feel lucky to also be harvesting fresh greens for our csa from our tunnels even under a blanket of snow. Found a little time to build some snow people.

Weekly laying hen move. I love bringing them to new pasture, especially when it looks as good as this red clover. The field rotation we’ve been doing on this ground the last few years is one year red clover and chickens, one year vegetables. Great fertility. Need to work on the weeds a bit.

2nd pic is a before-after across the fence line of what our 250 layers grazed in a week.

"Hey Peggy, there's some cud chewing noise. Can you mute yourself?" We couldn't resist 😊 but in all seriousness, want to send a smile, thank you, and "hang in there" to ALL of our regional farmers (not just the one's whose animals got on our 'Benefits of Going Grassfed' #Zoom call) for their hard work #stillfarming through this pandemic. Many have had to learn new digital platforms and quickly build new packing and distribution systems in order to pivot to direct sales. And that's on top of the already busy nature of Spring. Now is a perfect time to invest your grocery dollars into your local food community. To find a farmer near you, or get listed, visit the Find-A-Farmer Or Market Map on our website. To help us continue to help farmers, consider donating to Future Harvest. #knowyourfarmer #shoplocal #sustainableagriculture #farming #midatlantic #sheep #goats #chickens #pigs #hogs #cows #calf #dairy #jerseys #turkeys #LGD #GoGrassfed #agserviceproviders #fhcasa #maryland #virginia #westvirginia #delmarvafarms #dc #thankyou Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture Open Book Farm Moutoux Orchard Whiffletree Farm Chesapeake Bay Foundation Long Stone Farm Georges Mill Farm Artisan Cheese Bean Hollow Grassfed Flying Plow Farm Plow and Stars Farm Where Pigs Fly Farm St Brigid's Farm Rocklands Farm DC Greens Clagett Farm CSA
Check out Moutoux Orchard and their “whole diet” CSA!
Rauch Tater — Imperial Märzen 8.2% // 100% Virginia Grain 750mL bottles This is a special beer for us. It’s our first collaboration and meant to celebrate the season, the harvest, and the small farms that make local agriculture possible. Two family farms bringing value-added produce to market, individually — one a Whole Diet CSA and one a Land Beer brewery — offer you Rauch Tater, together. We partnered with Moutoux Orchard to create this Imperial Märzen made with smoked sweet potatoes, sage, and brown sugar. Moutoux Orchard is a third generation family farm committed to sustainable, whole-diet agriculture. The Moutoux family works tirelessly to bring people the highest quality produce and provisions, with a focus on sustainable land stewardship and ethical livestock management. We are so incredibly grateful to call them neighbors, colleagues, and friends. The name, Rauch Tater, hints at our approach to this beer. With a wink to northern Bavarian Rauchbier, which uses smoked malt for often deep smokey flavors, we opted for a subtle smoke component — more earthly than smokey— as a guidepost for the flavors to meet. Instead of smoked grain, the sustainably-grown sweet potatoes from Moutoux Orchard were smoked at our farm with local apple and cherry wood. The sweet potatoes were then put in the 100% Virginia grain mash with local sage. Once transferred to the boil kettle, we added brown sugar. Post fermentation, the Imperial Märzen rested in oak puncheons at 35F for three months before bottle conditioning for another two months. The result is a flavorful beer with complexity from ingredients that have had time to get to know each other. Rauch Tater has a lush base from the malt and molasses sweetness from the brown sugar. The waft of smoke provides an earthy taste that connects the malt and molasses with a velvety mouthfeel from the sweet potatoes. This is capped with a savory and dry finish at the top, thanks to the sage. To us, it tastes like the holidays. Available ‪from Saturday, 14 December‬. @ Wheatland Spring Farm + Brewery
Imperial Märzen with smoked sweet potatoes, sage, and brown sugar. We partnered with our friends and neighbors at Moutoux Orchard to use two hundred pounds of their sustainably grown sweet potatoes in this Imperial Märzen. The sweet potatoes were smoked at our farm by Market Table Bistro over apple and cherry wood before being mixed with regional grains and local sage. It was brewed in early summer and cold conditioned in oak for three months. A limited number of bottles will be available for purchase next month.

A huge thank you to all of the farms that hosted last weekend's BFTP-only hands-on field days. It's a delight to be constantly awed by the generosity of the farmers in our network. We tested out tractors at Potomac Vegetable Farms, toured the orchard and cattle pastures and learned about CSAs at Moutoux Orchard, explored everything cut flower at Greenstone Fields, and talked about small farm equipment and marketing at Second Spring. Click through the photos below for a small snapshot of these information-packed days.
Thanks Moutoux Orchard for hooking us up with 200 pounds of sweet potato for our first produce forward beer that we’ll be brewing this week. Market Table Bistro has our back this weekend whipping up BBQ Pork and Summer Vegetable Flatbread for customers while also smoking all 200 pounds of these sweet potato beauties. @ Loudoun County, Virginia
