Welcome Spring

Hello all,

So it is officially Spring on the farm and we have been busy preparing the garden for another great season. We have planted a majority of the beds, and as you can see, the plants are sprouting perfectly...

We've also added potato towers to the farm:

Potatoes are a crop new at farm. Hopefully this season we will have lots of wonderful varieties to sell at market and through our CSA program.

The warm weather has also brought out more visitors and volunteers to the farm. Recently a class from the Howard School paid us a visit, and their excitement and curiosity was absolutely contagious. It was a joy to see them interact with all the animals and learn about everything in the garden. They are helping us paint signs for the garden, and I will post pictures when they are finished. We are very much looking forward to future visits from students at the Howard School.

We have a few more beds to create and plant before our first round of crops are officially in the ground. So far everything is running smoothly and it looks like we are going to have another great season.

Here are a few more pictures from around the farm. As you can see, Olivia is really enjoying the weather...

Happy Spring,
