'Suppose hibernation time is really over? It has felt that way in terms of tasks TO DO for 2019 Herb & Flower CSA season. We have received (and swapped!) fresh seed, potted up cool season flower and herb seedlings, attended a thought-provoking conference offered by the VA Association for Biological Farming (VABF), and pruned our elder shrubs to propagate. The back corner of the basement is being prepped for a new Cool-Bot cooler, and this may be the year that the hoop house pieces and parts we purchased a year ago get reassembled!

We are delighted to be collaborating again with Wingstem Farm and Bramble Hollow Farm to offer EDIBLE GOOSE CREEK Farm Fare Meal Kits and Bone Broth Kits. NEW this season: distribution via VA Field Goods on-line food hub, starting in mid-February.

Come visit! Our two farmstay guest rooms are available if you are passing through, need a quiet getaway, or want to help put up our repurposed hoop house! We are convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Peaks of Otter, and great hiking and James River water activity (Twin River Outfitters are closed for winter). Phone or email ahead for availability and weather conditions.

Other offerings: seedling sales; farm tours/talk on ecological/spiritual practices applied to small-scale growing; seasonal cooking, fermentation and food preservation classes (kombucha, fermented vegetables, yogurt culture); product and book reviews; food writing; entertaining and informative "show & tell" programs for your group or event; recipe development; natural foods freelance or personal chef service.

Join our natural foods buying club and receive great food at good prices (Frankferd Farms Foods in Saxonburg PA is the distributor; see www.frankferd.com). If you would like to collaborate on our orders, please get in touch. We look forward to sharing with you!
