Thank you to all our strawberry fans who know the joys of an organic berry warmed and ripened in the sun! You came out in such numbers, that Megan is planning on having even more berries available next year. Strawberry Festival was a success with 1,300 people attending and generating only two bags of trash! Huge thanks to all of our volunteers- we couldn’t do it without you! Sale: 20% off annuals and 50% off perennials this weekend!

Strawberries & More! This amazing strawberry season isn’t over yet! One of our biggest celebrations of the year is Strawberry Festival, this Sunday the 24th, and we hope you will be here! The berry pickers have been out picking every day for three weeks, starting at 6 am (they only got to go home home early on those days it was over 90) and the kitchen is full of assistants and volunteers washing, hulling and slicing the berries in preparation for all the festival strawberry shortcakes, sundaes & smoothies. Strawberries are the special treat that gets the most attention this time of year, but you should also celebrate those new potatoes, fresh peas, and the first summer squash in your shares this week! Sale Mixed hanging baskets are now $20. Strawberry hanging baskets are now $10. Strawberry 6” pots are now $3. Discounts are taken at the register!

Field Notes This past week was definitely strawberry-centric, and the little sweeties will continue to consume most of our attention for the next few weeks. The field crews’ hard work tending the fields is paying off, and we are happy to announce that the Pick Your Own patch will open this Sunday June 10 from 7-12- see below for more info! Although the rest of us are mad with berry frenzy, Luke and Megan have their eyes on the fall, and are also planting storage potatoes, winter squash, celeriac, Brussels sprouts, and of course, pumpkins. Everything is growing well, including blueberries, and we are looking forward to some delicious months ahead.

Field Notes Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial beginning of the summer season and the official start of our Summer CSA! The field crews are busy planting and harvesting. Anna and the farmstand staff are keeping the shelves stocked with those fresh veggies, while Alison and her kitchen assistants are turning spring harvests into amazing treats. People of all ages are coming to the farm to learn- from busloads of kids helping Megan and Cat remove field blankets to our sold-out foraging and wild edibles class last weekend. This is a wonderful time to be on the farm!
