It's Been a Long, Cold, Lonely Winter

Blog: Little Hillside CSA   -   Wednesday March 09, 2011   -   By Paul

It's March 9 today, and everyone I know is feeling lethargic.  The sky is overcast, and the occasional sunny day, while appreciated, also throws these gloomy days into a sharp relief. Ah, but there's hope! Hope in the form of tiny seedlings emerging...

Winter in the soil

Blog: Six Circles Farm   -   Friday January 28, 2011   -   By Jacob, Lael, and Michael.

Today, overlooking the snow covered hill of seneca lake I thought to myself, what if the snow never melted? I mean, who am I to say that spring will return, for do I have control in the matter? What force must be pulling me to reflect on the magnanimity of the...

As the Seasons Turn our Heritage remains the Same

Blog: McFadden Ranch   -   Monday November 29, 2010   -   By Marilyn and Jim

The 2010 spring and early summer at McFadden Ranch were unusually cool, and as a result, very enjoyable.   During the 2009-2010 rainy season we received a total of 17 wonderful inches of rain, finally leaching the soil of accumulated salts from...

Seasonally Sound

Blog: Mott Family Farm   -   Tuesday October 05, 2010   -   By Shelley

It wasn't until we moved to Ohio that I really learned about seasons. In Southern California it is either "hot and dry" or "cool and dry," and completely deprives the senses that marks this passage of time. If you're living off the land,...

Autumn Splendor

Blog: Portage River Farm   -   Thursday October 22, 2009   -   By John

The beauty of Fall time is far too fleeting. For the past few weeks, the leaves have put on an increasingly dazzling display as each species took its turn to flare up in brilliant hues before fading and falling in favor of the next. The winds and rainy days...

In The Dark, We Find Light!

Blog: The Orchard at Apolloson Acres   -   Friday October 16, 2009   -   By Allison

Here in Northeast Ohio, Winter is creeping in faster than most of us would like. Usually I welcome the brisk October air, however, ours this year is damp and rainy. Apples aren't getting picked as fast as they should, horses are getting outside as much as...

Boulder Belt Farm Share Initiative Week 26

Blog: Boulder Belt Eco-Farm   -   Wednesday September 30, 2009   -   By Lucy

The first and last newsletter of the month. Weird, but true because the month of October starts mid week. To all of you who have done this all season, congrats, you have made it almost all the way. In my experience as a CSA farmer this is somewhat rare. In...

The Silence of the Ducks.....

Blog: Rockgate Farm   -   Tuesday August 25, 2009   -   By Angela

Where did she go?     She was just right there.  I know, I almost stepped on her.  Darn ducks, always following me around, making all that noise.....and doing bad things on the car port.  Who says they don't fly....Tell that...

When we aren't running the farm or business we lik...

Blog: Golden Touch Alpaca Farm   -   Thursday February 19, 2009   -   By Shelley

Sit back and enjoy the Weather. Since a very young age I can remember being an avid Weather lover, always mesmerized by the sheer force of Mother Nature. Luckily living in New England we are able to experience a wide spectrum of what Mother Nature has to...
