This year has been strange. Well, what year isn’t? Super-hot in the spring, drought and now a little rain – if you can call 100 drops rain! We have had more little frogs and moles roaming the land. Gorgeous sunsets and cloud formations. And many new faces checking out our bounty AND new critters taking up residence at the farm!
The first week of July, new goslings hatched to 2 mothers who shared the incubating duties. When one goose departed the eggs for water or food and to stretch her legs a little, the other girl goose would take over for a while. Often both of them were cozy in the igloo sharing the coverage of the eggs. Pretty darn cute. As a result we have 4 new goslings that provide great entertainment and cuteness factor.
You can join our 2014 CSA starting now! If you want to be a part of our CSA running May 28th – Nov 19th send us an email and we will send you detailed information with pricing options. Pick up of your fresh, tasty sustainable grown produce is at the farm Wednesday 3-6pm.
NEW 2014!! This year we have decided to add more flowers on the farm. We hope this will lead to more foraging for the bees, butterflies and birds, plus a bonus of beautiful bouquets for you! Many don’t realize where a majority of the flowers come from and the great distances flowers travel to get to us here in the United States. We are fortunate to live in an area where there are so many local and seasonal options for floral delights to grace our lives. Choose something right in your backyard in Sonoma County and support your local farmer for your fresh cut flowers for a weekly arrangement or one time engagement. Availability of cut flowers at the farm vary from the end of May until end of October.
Flower CSA – Bouquet Shares. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A flower CSA works the same way as popular vegetable CSAs. Members typically join in early spring, when expenses are high but crops are not yet ready for sale, enabling farmers to purchase necessary supplies for the growing season to come. In return for your support, we provide you with a lovely weekly bouquet of fresh sustainably grown in-season blooms. The bouquet share is also a great choice for the local business looking to add color and a fresh distinctive touch to your sales or reception area. Great for wineries, doctor’s offices or hostess stations. In 2014, our Flower CSA runs from June through the first week in September with a pick up on Wednesday.
