Coming Soon: Fresh Flowers

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 9.13.52 AM

This summer we are planning on growing an array of beautiful flowers. Fresh flowers not only add a charm and beauty to the farm but also attract bees and other beneficial animals and insects to the farm. This helps create a healthy and balanced ecosystem important for natural farm production.

We recently started Calendula and Chamomile flower trays and are planning on translating them outside mid-May. Over the next few weeks we will continue to start more varieties of flowers, including: wildflowers, sunflowers and more.

CSA Members will be able to bag swap for these fresh flowers and community members will have the option to purchase bouquets from our Farm Market. We’re looking forward to these beautiful colors and aromas dotting the farm. 

In the Bag: April 14th-April 18th

Introducing The Farm Market

10154201_607504045994778_8192600449753608415_n

We are excited to announce another new purchasing option at the farm. For those interested in local produce but who can’t figure out what to do with all the produce CSA Members receive or for those who only want certain kinds of produce The Farm Market is a wonderful new choice.

Ultimate Customization
Each week The Farm Market page will be updated with what’s currently available at the farm. Purchasers simple select what produce they’d like, how much, and what day to pick it up at the farm.

The Freshest Produce Around
Farm produce is fully ripened in the ground and harvested the morning of pickup. This ensures that purchasers enjoy the freshest product possible. In comparison, the majority of grocery-store produce is grown out of state or out of country. This forces growers to harvest their produce prior to ripeness. The product then ripens on the truck or plane, usually with the assistance of chemicals, and is then placed on the store shelves where it can await purchase for numerous days or weeks.

Our local farm produce is harvested when it is fully ripened and picked up by customers within hours of harvest.

Purchase From The Farm Market
This week The Farm Market features arugula, chard, kale, mixed greens, spinach and fresh herbs. Get your greens here. Check back often to see the new produce that’s available in the coming seasons.

Growing Garlic

Screen Shot 2014-04-07 at 10.43.23 AM

Beautiful green shoots can be found around the farm with hundreds of healthy garlic bulbs growing under ground. Garlic is the perfect addition to nearly any dish and is famous for it’s amazing immune-boosting benefits.

We are growing an array of garlic varieties including:

  • Chesnok
  • Purple Glazer
  • Elephant

Last year, we traded our mixed greens with Thistle Creek Farm for their unique garlic. Thistle Creek is a Utah based farm that specializes in garlic production. We saved the bulbs and planted them at our farm last fall. They are doing fantastic and we’re excited to harvest these specialty garlics this summer and fall.

CSA Members can look forward to fresh garlic in the coming months as well as the familiar dry garlic saved for the cold late fall and winter months.

A Dozen Fresh and Flavorful Recipes to Try

IMG_4339

By Becky with Project Domestication

I love fresh herbs. Now that we’re getting a good amount (and variety) of them in our CSA share each week, I’m trying to plan my meals around them. Herbs add so much flavor without the use of salt or fat, plus they have so many nutritional benefits. In this week’s round-up, I included some creative recipes that highlight herbs. I love them because they call for a healthy dose in each recipe, allowing me to get through my share and really enjoy their flavor. I also threw in two great recipes for mixed greens. I imagine they’d be perfect for a large Sunday dinner, complementing most meats.

What are the Benefits of CSA Membership?

LaNayFerme_7612_annestephenson

Every week CSA Members enjoy bags full of fresh in-season produce, directly from our farm in Provo, UT. There are many benefits to becoming a CSA Member. Here are some of the top reasons to join the farm:

Freshness and Fully Ripened Produce
We harvest CSA Shares the morning of pickups. This ensures that members enjoy the freshest product possible. In comparison, the majority of grocery-store produce is grown out of state or out of country. This forces growers to harvest their produce prior to ripeness. The product then ripens on the truck or plane, usually with the assistance of chemicals, and is then placed on the store shelves where it can await purchase for numerous days.

Our local farm produce is harvested when it is fully ripened and picked up by customers within hours of harvest.

Unique Heirloom Varieties
All of the seeds used at the farm are carefully selected from trusted sources who care for the earth and maintain high standards for seed production. We are continually fine-tuning the crops we grow and determining which varieties do best in our climate and soil. Members love the unique heirloom varieties we produce and enjoy the taste and beauty of purple carrots, white tomatoes, candy-stripe beets and many more unique vegetables only found at local farms.

Healthy, Mineral-Rich Soil
Healthy plants start with healthy soil. We play close attention to our soil’s nutrition levels and use the following practices to ensure the most mineral-rich soil as possible: green manures/cover-crops, compost and crop rotation.

Natural Produce, No Harsh Chemicals or Fertilizers
With quality seeds and healthy soil our plants stay strong and are able to fight most pests on their own. We strive to create an environment where beneficial insects can thrive to maintain a healthy ecosystem at the farm. When pests are an issue we use organic, natural and traditional methods to get things back in balance.

Nearly Year Round Harvests 
The farm started out with one high-tunnel and has grown to now 42 high-tunnels all 75 feet long. This provides us with thousands of feet of indoor growing space. Our high-tunnels are unheated and uncooled. Through the simple use of plastics, row-covers and shade-clothes we maintain favorable growing temperatures for produce nearly all year. We typically stop-production in December and January and resume deliveries the end of February or beginning of March.

We strive to provide the most nutritious, flavorful, unique, natural and quality product around. Become a member today and enjoy the upcoming bountiful harvests of your local farm.
