This fabulous head of cabbage came from my father's garden yesterday. He always taught us that if you could fish and grow vegetables, you would never be hungry. At 87, he is still doing both. This morning he left for an offshore fishing trip with his son and grandson. Hook a big one Pop!

It'll be a while but this is a hopeful sign!

On a less hopeful note, the bees swarmed this morning and so we've likely lost half the hive. Never count your honey til it's harvested! 🐝😟

It's getting crowded in the hive. These are some busy bees!

Anna's Acre supporters old and new, we have some changes to share with you. We will no longer be selling our products at the farmer's market on Saturday morning, so our apologies if you have driven by looking for us! We are now selling direct from the farm and online through Down East Connect/Farmzie (see details below).

For direct farm sales, just call Alex (910-617-9491) and place your order by 5 PM on Friday afternoon and we will deliver for FREE in the Wilmington area (for orders of $10 or more) the following Saturday. You can also come by on Saturday morning (8:00-noon) or call Alex anytime during the week.

Online sales: We have partnered with Down East Connect for the past several years, and they have just switched to a platform called Farmzie, a new app that we believe will change the way small farmers connect with customers. If you are interested in supporting not only Anna's Acre, but other local farms and providers, you can register with Farmzie and select Down East Connect as your preference. If you order through Farmzie, you'll pay a small convenience fee that helps the farmers but you will be able to pick up all of your produce at a regular pick-up place each week. For more info, go to Farmzie.com.

Even if you don't want to shop through Farmzie, you can log in to see what we have for sale each week. I'll also post updates here.

Thank you for your past and continued support of Anna's Acre. Check back soon for a list of current offerings.

On Dec. 3 the YWCA's afterschool program 4-H Club came to Anna's Acre. They helped prepare some garden beds for winter, planted a cover crop, fed the chickens, and learned about compost, shiitake mushrooms, and bees. They were such hard-working and enthusiastic helpers. You can see for yourself how adorable they are! Thanks to Sarah Flaherty, Childcare Director at the YWCA for organizing. And a big thank you also to Owen, Nancy, and Julio for sharing these future farmers with us for an afternoon. We loved having them!

I bought some of your 100's of tomatoes cherry tomato plants last year. Will you have those at the Castle Street market, or do I need to come to your farm to get them? All of the little humans I care for loved them and I want to be able to give them what they love. :-)
Very satisfied customers! They loved the pumpkin spice muffins!!
Visiting Aunt Anna today!
Another of both plants we got from you, andmy grandaughter photo bombing my pic. :-)
These are a picture of the 100 Cherry tomato plants I bought from you at the Castle St. Market. It looks like we might get a couple of hundred tomatoes. :-)
So good to see you this morning at your Hanover Center market! Am munching on raw sugar snaps--the perfect natural "candy"--just delicious. :)
We are proud to bring you fresh produce from our garden here at San Juan Cafe, as well as neighboring gardens such as Anna's Acre.

Tonight we are serving a seared Amberjack filet over these local garden summer veggies finished with a spicy manzano butter sauce. We've also got Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy for $3.50 a bottle.
See you soon, foodies!
Remember why the hens run and run from the roosters?? :)
What a great banner pic! Look forward to visiting Anna's Acre!
I made this potato salad with sugar snap peas yesterday with wonderful produce from Anna's Acre. I used lots of fresh mini-carrot tops to make the dressing a lovely spring green color. It is soooooo good!
Can't wait to meet you two.. From Ivanhoe here. Thx for the info earlier.
love Anna's Acre
