Spring Winds

Spring Winds

From gophers, to birds, insects and spring snow storms there are many challenges to farming. It’s a constantly changing environment that brings mindful attention to creating a healthy and balanced eco-system for healthy plants.

This spring we have faced the challenge of heavy winds on the lower portion of the farm. The soil is this area of the farm is quite sandy. It lifts easily with the winds and damages tender greens and new summer plants trying to gain strength. We are working hard to put up temporary wind barriers and are planning on creating natural wind blocks with hedge plants and trees in the future.

We are dedicated to providing only the highest quality products for our customers and will continue working hard to ensure a premium product. Enjoy the greens, root crops and herbs in shares this week and look forward to strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli and basil in the near future.
