We began our journey as farmers with the romantic ideal of preserving the endangered small family farm. We were young and strong and highly motivated. Still very passionate about building a sustainable local economy, a secure sense of knowing where our food comes and fostering a healthy relationship between farmers and eaters, we are fully in love with the CSA model. We e-mail out a Weekly Dig Newsletter with stories, pictures and favorite recipes from the farm with your CSA box. We like to use our newsletters as a way to help you build a transparent and engaging relationship with your farm-one that inspires and educates, one that nourishes the spirit of family and your body, one that feels wholesome and satisfying. Visit the farm during one of our Spring or Fall CSA Farm-Tour and Potluck. We aim to harvest our vegetables at the peak of ripeness when they look and taste the best. We provide many of the favorites like onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, and tomatoes while also challenging you with some of the more unusual vegetables like celeriac root, radicchio, diakon radish, and napa cabbage. Go on the full journey of a growing season with us and find out what it�??s like to eat from the fertile soils of one of America�??s Small Family Farms.
We dig vegetables! To mimic a more balanced ecosystem we have pastured broiler chickens, feeder pigs and beef cattle to help us maintain the land. They help us keep the grass munched down and the pastures fertilized. We believe that having a small amount of animals on the farm that have access to fresh grass at all times is an important part of maintaining healthy soils and healthy animals. In the summer, fall and winter we do have pastured chickens and some pork for sale.
