Welcome everyone to the farm blog! We look forward to giving you a closer look into the day-to-day of farm life and the things we are learning along the way.
Before things can slow down for the winter, we have the fall harvest to finish. Most of the livestock feed we grow goes to local organic dairies, including alfalfa hay, field corn, and roasted soybeans. This coming week we hope to have the fourth and final cutting of hay off and the corn and beans harvested. We are always antsy to get the soybeans out of the field because we follow it with either spelt or einkorn wheat (which i will be discussing in-depth later). Once all this is finished we only have our food-grade open pollinated corn to harvest and the main field work will be done.
In the produce side of things we still have cabbage, brussels sprouts, peppers, kale, romaine, and red leaf lettuce growing. All produce which has already finished is in a field pea cover crop or rye. We hope to get rye in after all of the produce is done.
If you are interested in what we still have to offer, come by the farm and check out our simple walk-in cooler.
