Happy New Year! We are enjoying the short day hibernation portion of farm life! Our winter holidays were sweet, if abbreviated. We have begun seeding the cool weather flowers for spring bouquets, and will take inventory of supplies in anticipation of placing seed orders soon. This is our first winter with the unheated hoop house filled with leafy greens, cool-loving herbs, Austrian winter peas, and the start of 2022 biennial flowers. It is truly a pleasure to go harvest veggies this time of year!
Sister Nettle Farmstay is available for a serene winter getaway close to Blue Ridge Parkway and the amenities of Roanoke and Bedford. Please email if you are interested. The COVID adaptations we made have worked really well: guests have all of the cottage to themselves (except our basement workspace and bedroom wing). Visitors prepare their own meals; I can stock the fridge with neighboring farmers' eggs, yogurt, sourdough bread, or meats if desired.
Our other offerings, such as nursery stock sales, cooking classes, farm tours, etc. are on hiatus until milder weather. Feel free to reach out if you want to book something. Nancy is happy to communicate and share via email and video calls.
