Spring At The Farm!

After an extended and snowy winter we’re excited to be back in the fields.  April and May will be field prep and planting seasons, followed shortly by a few weeks of woodchip spreading.  The woodchips are an organic way to manage weed growth and retain soil moisture.  The heavy snow melt has helped saturate the soil so the trees will have a great start to the growing season!

Photo Shoots At The Farm

During the non-selling season (Jan 1-Nov 15) we offer the farm as a backdrop for family photo sessions.  It’s a great way to capture photos and explore the farm and fields!  More information here
