We are up and running!


We have been quite busy these past couple of weeks, eagerly getting our transplants into the ground along with direct seeding.  We have planted a large variety of plants including: cucumbers, greens, flowers, squash, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, kohlrabi, potatoes, melons, clover, onions, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, beets, carrots, turnips, rutabaga, leeks, celery, celeriac, and corn, just to name a few!  

Having a blog is a great way to keep the community updated on the activities happening on the farm.  The function of this blog is not only to provide a daily update of what is accomplished on the farm, but we'll also post the weekly evening communal member hours (posted Sunday nights), share photos, stories, and recipes that incorporate seasonal produce. 

Once everything is planted (hopefully to be completed in the next few days!), SEEDS will be welcoming some animals to the farm.  We will have 4 Nigerian dwarf goats (2 milking does and 2 male kids), 200 chickens, 30 egg-laying chickens, and 6 pigs.  We will definitely have our hands full!

We hope you follow along on our blog and watch our farm grow!  If you are interested in stopping out at the farm to visit throughout the season, there will be farmers out there M-F from 7:30-4:30 (if we aren't there, we are running errands, on a lunch break, etc.).  

We look forward to seeing you out at the farm.  Happy Summer!
