It was a great relief that the terrible storms that went through our area yesterday literally went right around us. Rain is bad. Hail is the worst. There is no more helpless feeling than watching it rain from the sky and you have no way of stopping it. Frost...

Local Strawberries

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Monday June 17, 2013   -   By Katie

This spring may have been cooler than usual but it is still, after all, spring. My goal for May and early June was to stock up on three early-spring crops: Asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries. We’ve purchased and preserved more than 12 pounds of asparagus...
