Hello members! We're your farmers who are happy to grow food for people who care!
We finally got a photo of our crew wearing our snazzy new Minnesota Grown Hats. Let me introduce you to Dan (who loves to hold chickens) on the right, Margaret in the purple, Bill in the blue, and me, Becca, on the left. Even though our full time team is small, it's neat to think that a few people can feed 100 families and hundreds of college students (we also sell produce wholesale to the colleges in Northfield). And several hundred people who frequent the food shelf in Northfield and around the metro as well!
Thank you for your trust in us to grow nutritious food for you and your friends/family. It allows us to fill our summers doing what we are passionate about, growing food.
This week on the farm:
Harvest days have turned into multi day events as the harvests have been getting bigger. We've been spending a lot of time moving produce out of the field in preparation to distribute it. We planted another succession of radish, kohlrabi, spinach, arugula, lettuce, and mixed greens for the fall. We continually weed established crops to reduce competition. We gave the pigs bigger pasture. We've been busy getting all the garlic out of the field and into the greenhouse to cure. We've also been turning in old crops to get the fields ready for cover cropping. Lots of fun!
