Fresh Sauerkraut & other delights

post by: Debbie  August 15, 2014

Wahoo! The first fresh sauerkraut of the season will be available Sunday to Tuesday at the farm, $8.00 per quart and $5.50 per pint.  If you bring your own glass jar we'll take $.50 off.  The fresh kraut will keep in your frig for a month or two and has all the lovely probiotics that keep our guts happy.  The processed sauerkraut retains the vitamins and minerals but the good bacteria is destroyed in the heat used in processing.

We also have a good supply of eggs, French Fillet green beans, carrots, cabbage, broccoli, kale, swiss chard, cucumbers, summer squash, onions, garlic, red and black currant jellies, wild rice and probably a few other things I've forgot.  Come on by and enjoy the harvest.

What's in the frig?

post by: Debbie  July 12, 2014

Hi Folks,

As some of you know we've had an egg famine with our old lady hens only laying 2 eggs a day but now our friend Elena is back from her first year of nursing school and has a new group of young hens laying quite nicely.  So the frig is full of eggs, lots of different greens, summer squash is on and with this hot weather this will be the only week for snow and edible pod peas.  Come on by and enjoy the bounty.

Wind Damage

post by: Kevin  June 9, 2014

A couple of weeks ago one of those rapidly-building, volatile high desert winds picked up three of our large greenhouses, twisting and tossing them.  One ended up on top of our solar system panels.
We have had greenhouses moved, even turned up on their sides,  but never tossed so wildly and so far. We were a bit stunned! Almost immediately, one of our neighbors was over trying to figure out how he could help, later that evening our family showed up, jolting us out of our stupor, and helped cover the plants that no  longer had a greenhouse to protect them. The next day, friends from the Higher Ground Community came to help take the damaged greenhouses apart and further save remaining plants.  The Sustainability class from COCC came en mass, picked up the greenhouse that was somewhat intact, and walked it back into place.  We had to smile at the young women in their fashion boots and flip flops grabbing their section of the greenhouse and trudging through the muddy, torn up field as if no big deal.  And if all this wasn't awesome enough community support, one of our customers came by with a $500 check saying she had heard we'd had a lot of damage.
Though our insurance company told us greenhouses were not part of our farm policy and would not be covered, seeing our community respond was priceless.  It reminded us how fortunate we are to be rooted here and how valuable community is in uncertain times.  Much gratitude and many thanks to all of you!
Jim, Debbie and Brian

Thank you Locavore WOOLF party!

post by: Kevin  May 22, 2014

A big thanks to the Locavore WOOLF party.  When I looked at the list of jobs to do on the work board at the end of the day, all of them were done!  Planting potatoes, mulching, pulling up landscape fabric, transplanting raspberries and more...WOW!
