Winter/Spring CSA Week 12

We've finally made it out of mud season and into growing season. All of our farms are hopping with activity. We're planting in greenhouses and in fields. We're moving animals to fresh green pastures. We're tending to baby chicks. We're collecting thousands of eggs. Once the weather breaks in the spring, farmers are always in a mad rush to get everything done.




This Week's Features

  • Asparagus from Glacial Till Farm and Mickley Organic Farm!!!

  • This will be the final week for ramps from Bushel & a Peck Farm

  • A few pounds of rhubarb from Bushel & a Peck Farm

  • Beet greens and radishes from Yellow Creek Farm

Bushel & a Peck Farm

We have lots of plants started in flats, growing while they wait to be planted in the gardens. Our cattle and sheep are getting impatient because they are still eating dry hay, but they can see fresh green grass on the other side of the fence. Because April was soooo wet, it delayed being able to move the animals to fresh pasture until the grass grew more. If we put them there too early, then they will damage the grass and we won't be able to rotate them through that field again this year. But the pastures are finally ready, so we will be loading them in a trailer and moving them to pasture a few miles away.
