Things are rolling in!

The weather has been lovely and this means the crops are bursting and coming along nicely. HG and the crew are busy tending the fields and checking on the progress of each and every crop. It looks like this week we'll have more great things on the farm stand so keep your eyes peeled for cucumbers, squash and green beans.

These beautiful snow peas are part of the CSA share this week

The share this week is pretty well rounded. You'll get some delicious fresh veggies and beautiful sunflowers to get you through the week!

We also have Styer's Peonies at the stand. You don't want to miss these beauties so stop by and grab some while we still have them!

We're crossing our fingers for green beans to come in sooner, they're about a week from being ready to harvest. The blackberries are close, so close we can already taste them! Blackberries have a short season around here, usually lasting 5-6 weeks. Since it's a short burst, one of our favorite things to do (aside from eating blackberries fresh) is make blackberry jam! One of the easiest recipes to follow is Marissa at Food in Jars recipe for Blackberry Jam.

Don't forget to check the events calendar for upcoming events on the farm. We have the Farm Tour on June 16th, our Wild Edibles Walk on June 23rd and the Field to Fork Dinners are fast approaching. We hope to see you at the farm stand!
