The produce in the field is looking great and we will continue to sign up members during the season, at a pro-rated price once the harvest season has begun, until we are sold out. Sign up online and you can begin getting fresh, delicious vegetables next week!
There are two things on the farm right that are springing to life right now (despite the icy snow) in anticipation of the summer:
