During this cold snap all the veggies are stuffed in the grey refrigerator to keep them from freezing. Feel free to open the sales shed door and pick up what you need from the refrigerator. The sauerkraut is inside the sunroom attached to our house. Come through the gate into the yard and knock on the sunroom door if you would like sauerkraut or garlic powders or quince jelly.

It's Thanksgiving week and we have just taken the last batch of sauerkraut out of the crocks! We are thankful for this abundant year. With the help of some deer fencing we had a prolific cabbage crop. Listening to the gentle glug, glug of the fermentation process as cabbage is transformed into crisp, tangy sauerkraut has added to the richness of our farm life. This final batch of the season is out in the sales shed along with our Old Fashioned Quince Jelly.
Garlic Herb powders including Plain Garlic, Garlic Basil, Fiesta Blend and Seasonal Seasoning are available to spice up your holiday meals. It's potato sale time!
20 Lbs for $20, 10 lbs for $11.00 Varieites include German Butterball, a smoooth yellow skin wwith deep yellow interior, good for mashing, baking, cottage fries, an all around delicous potato. Our red potato is Chieftain with a smooth red skin and creamy white interior.
Fingerling potatoes include Russian Banana and Peruvian Purple. Both are delicious roasted, steamed, in stews. Baked, one of our local bakeries has been using them in a potato cheese bread. 10 lbs for $12.50.
Carrots, beets, onions, garlic are also on the table or in the refrigerator.
Come on by, stock up for winter and your holiday meals.

Life is beginning to pleasantly slow down on Fields Farm. Jim and Brian worked to get the last of the potatoes out of the ground this week. This morning the sales shed is packed with plenty of garlic, onions, 4 kinds of potatoes, 3 kinds of beets, carrots, cabbage and wild rice. Stop by anytime and help yourself.

Hi Folks, Farmer's markets have ended but we still have plenty of beets(3 varieties), carrots, cabbage, collards, garlic, kale, leeks, onion, peppers, potatoes(4 varieties) sauerkraut, tomatoes, wild rice and garlic herb powders.
The stand is self service, open during daylight hours. Check the white board for prices, record your purchases in the small spiral note book in the green box and leave payment, cash or checks are fine. However if it's your first time out and you would like help, it is not impolite to honk and we'll come help you. We are also accepting senior and WIC Farmer market vouchers through the end of October.

This is the time of year of abundance! The stand has 3 kinds of potatoes, onions, garlic, carrots, beets, kale, chard, tomatoes, cucumbers, walnuts in the shell, summer squash, cabbage, broccoli and probably a few things I've forgotten to mention. If you want larger amounts of cabbage or beets for canning or pickling let us know.
For those of you who frequent the Downtown Farmer's Market you may have noticed the new sauerkraut. This is a pastuerized and canned product. If you are interested in fresh sauerkraut let us know and we will arrange for on farm pick up.
Enjoy the fall abundance and think about stocking up for winter.

Life never stays the same does it? As many of you know we have been selling eggs with our friend Elena. She has been accepted into nursing school(no small feat) and is decreasing her flock size, so we will only have our eggs to sell. As we only have about 6 to 8 dozen eggs to sell a week, we would like to refer our eggs buyers to the Locavor Store on NE 1st street behind Miller Lumber. They are open Monday through Friday from noon to 6 pm. They have a regular supply of local farm raised eggs.
At the farmstand we have 3 varieties of potatoes, onions, those big heads of garlic, carrots, beets, cabbage, brocolli, basil,cucumbers, 4 kinds of kale, swiss chard, green beans and walnuts. We're a bit shy of lettuce mix but more plantings are coming on next week. Tomatoes and peppers will be on in September. If you want Wild Rice, please ask for it. We have trouble with mice if we leave it in the sales shed. We are currently harvesting Monday through Thursday. The stand is open 7 days a week daylight hours. Come on by.
