Water Hose Wars

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Saturday April 20, 2013   -   By Terry

Okay, the title might be misleading----the war was between the water hoses and me and you know what?  As soon as the local trash convenience center opens up, I WIN! The weather people were predicting 34 degrees for last night, so I'm thinking a light...

Outdoor Planting

Blog: Seasons at Procter Farm   -   Friday April 19, 2013   -   By Rebekah

There's lots happening on the farm now that spring has set in. We've planted over 100 fruit trees (apple and cherry), preped ground for a new high tunnel, put some of the first crops in the ground, and continue to seed in the greenhouse! The baby chicks...

Spring Is Coming On Slowly

Blog: Phillips Orchards & Cider Mill   -   Wednesday April 17, 2013   -   By Brian

What a change from last year.  Last year we had an early warm up, followed by our typical late spring frost/freezes which destroyed most of the fruit crop. This spring it has been warming up slowly, so the buds are just now starting to open.  The mad...


High Speed

It's spring!  So much is going on!  Babies are here...we've got calves, lambs, and chicks, with lots more chicks to come, as well as turkey poults.  The garden is plowed, but there is much work to be done to get it ready for planting, and we're...

It's here, it's here! My honest to goodness favorite part of gardening. I am not sure if it is the mothering or the miracle of the act it's self but I LOVE to start seeds. Big ones, fat ones, small ones, odd ones.... they all make me feel the same. A jump up...

The sap is running and we are boiling!!!!!

Swiss'er Sweet Maple has over 3000 maple trees tap this spring season to bring its customers the best maple syrup from Lewis County, New York. Warm days and cool nights make the sap run up the trees. Our buckets wait for each drip. Our son Lane and his friends...

Spring Sprouts

Blog: Seasons at Procter Farm   -   Monday March 25, 2013   -   By Rebekah

  Spring has definitely sprung here at the farm, (even if the Ohio weather doesn't agree!) In our greenhouse early spring sprouts have already begun to emerge from the cell trays. There are currently alliums (such as onions) and brassicas (such...


Blog: White Frost Farm   -   Friday March 22, 2013   -   By Kit and Cathy

Kit and I are awaiting the arrival of spring as many of you are as well. Things are moving slowing on the farm right now, but it won't be long.  We have onions started and some greens in the hoop house.  Before we know it we will be in full...

Irish Blessings

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Monday March 18, 2013   -   By Emily

It sure looks like a winter wonderland outside my windows today! We've had over a foot of snow fall since the beginning of the weekend, erasing most of the signs of spring around the farm. Last Monday was a different story, though! The pasture...

The grower in all of us

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Tuesday March 12, 2013   -   By Brian

It has been a bad two grow years, economically, physically, environmentally and emotionally.  We have our doubts.  This winter has been a low point for me when talking about future growing efforts and sales. I have heard the saying,...

Spring is Around the Corner..

Blog: Thistle Byre Farm   -   Wednesday March 06, 2013   -   By Abby

New snow fell thickly last night, but the new lambs playing in this morning's snowy cold blanket  remind me that spring is just around the corner. Planting time will be upon us sooner than we realize.  Our grass will begin growing...

Awaiting Spring!

Blog: Windstone Farm   -   Monday March 04, 2013   -   By Terry

No that the days are over 11 hours long I am awaiting things to start to spring to life in the hoop house. The cilantro is just beginning to show signs of new growth. We need a bit more sunshine than Mother Nature has been supplying us with lately. Looks like...

Heating the Greenhouse

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Monday March 04, 2013   -   By Katie

When I was growing up my mom always had a countdown to spring. I’m not a fan of cold weather, or snow, or the cold-meets-muddy mess that is early spring in Michigan. For all those reasons I always joyfully joined into the countdown. And for all of those...
