Let's Talk.....

Let’s talk about spices……..

Did you know that anise seed is considered really good for indigestion? That is why so many cough drops and tonics have the sweet licorice flavor in them. Most cooks keep their use to cookies, cakes and breads but used in cottage cheese and even in pasta dishes it adds a whole new flavor.

Let’s talk about the veggies…..

Things are really jumping at the farm and the land is getting prepared for all the veggies you are all looking forward to getting soon. When it comes to trying to list all the veggies we will be growing it is hard to keep a list in your mind when that question comes up. Just know that most veggies you would find in a vegetable soup you will be getting this year….green beans, tomatoes, onions, snap peas, etc.A notice will go out well ahead of time when the first pick up will be ready. You will also receive an email confirming the pickup day you are scheduled for.

Let’s talk about the chickens…..

We will have eggs available for you and still want you to return the empty egg cartons so they can be reused. You will find the eggs in the small refrigerator and there will be a can on top for the money. Jane will be making a sign to tell you the price. I believe the price may go up this year but we shall see.

Let’s talk about a Farm Visit……

We will try to give you a heads up for the Farm Visit and will try to make it close to the time the first pick up will take place. We do this so you can meet the farm family (including Diesel) and also know where you will pick up your veggies. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

If you want to know more about canning veggies and or jams, jellies Jane is the one to talk to.

We can’t wait to welcome you all back to the farm! Watch for the invite!
