Welcome to the blog.

Hope everyone is starting off the New Year on a positive note.  We are.  The poultry strike is over and the girls are back to work. 

We are busy in the barn with lambs and our new calf, Patty, is strong and feisty.

Wow!  What a summer!  Even though fall is just around the corner, we are still picking peaches, nectarines, and corn, along with many other things.  Our new ram, Sherman, is doing very well.  He is such a cutie!

We now have fresh cherries at the farm market!  Also have fresh lettuce and radishes.  Want the fresh taste of garlic?  Try the garlic curls!

Now that I have a break from hay, I was able to check out the raised bed.  What a bounty!  We have beautiful lettuce available at the farm market, radishes, and garlic scapes.  For those of you who don't know, garlic scapes, or garlic curls, are the stalk that shoots up from the center and eventually produces a flower.  Many garlic producers cut it to help push more energy into the bulb itself.  So what do you do with it?  Use it like garlic.  It is a bit more mild but very flavorful. Our youngest son loves to puree the scapes with olive oil and make a spread for toast!

Things are quite busy here on the farm.  We are busy planting and hope to be harvesting soon.  Our egg situation has improved as the girls started laying more.

We have been wiping down our farm market daily.  You will see some changes when you come in so hope you enjoy them!

Well, I never thought I would send out an email about the corona virus, but here I am.  Our egg supply has been low.  With the virus outbreak there has been a larger demand for our eggs.  We did recently purchase more pullets that are starting lay so we should have a better supply soon.  Meanwhile, we ask you to please limit your purchase to two dozen, if possible.

We have been taking precautions, wiping down the doors, pen, and the cash box on a daily basis.  In keeping with trying to stay virus free please do not repack the eggs.  We make every effort to have the same selection of eggs in each box. 

Stay happy and healthy.

The other day a customer commented on how beautiful the sunflowers were.  They are beautiful but they serve a purpose or two.  First of all,  they provide food for the honey bees on our farm.  Second, they have deep roots which help break up the soil and they also  bring nutrients up from the subsoil.  Then as they break down they increase the organic matter in the soil.  We also, if they are close by, let the sheep and goats graze them.  The animals then poop  on the ground, adding fertilizer to the soil.  Who knew beauty could do so much!

Hope everyone is having a good summer so far.  I am still working on the farm stand so I apologize for the mess. We have started picking so we currently have some broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, sweet peppers and hot peppers. There are also a few beans available.  Squash is coming in  We also just pulled the garlic!  I will have some in the farm stand.  It will not be cleaned, but it will be GOOD!

After much thought and discussion, I have established a Go Fund Me account to raise funds for the five fire companies that responded to my barn fire.  Please consider a donation to these brave men and women who voluteer their time.  To do so go to gofundme.com, and search for Heather Skorinko.  Thank you so much.
