Snow Day on the Farm


So these are pictures from the farm last week. It was an absolutely beautiful day outside, and I even broke a sweat helping Mark with the greenhouse. (As you can see, the hoop house is progressing nicely.)

And this is today...

Olivia officially has a Pigloo and is refusing to come out...

Happy snow day #2, Atlanta!

Stay warm,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I present to you, Olivia:

That's right! We've got a pig! The other animals are still adjusting (Oli bit Coco, the dog, and she also ate all the chickens' food this morning) but I'm sure we'll be one big happy family in no time!

Oli will help us clear out a space in the garden that we haven't been able to use due to uneven ground and poor soil quality. She also we bring us (especially me) immense amounts of happiness.

Stop by and say "Hello" sometime!

Hoop House Construction and CSA Memberships

Hello everyone,

Thank god General Lee saw his shadow (or wait... didn't see his shadow?). Either way, Spring is almost here! We are definitely ready for warmer weather and longer days under the sun. Mark has been busy constructing our hoop house (green house), and it is a great addition to the farm.

Here are a few pictures:

In addition to the hoop house, I would also like to mention that CSA membership information is available on our website:

CSA memberships are a great way to eat fresh, local vegetables (and eggs) all season long. Check it out! The number of memberships available are limited, so let us know if you are interested ASAP.

Here's a basket from last season:

Take care,
