Today the first seeds of 2014 were planted in the greenhouse...Walla Walla onions, to be followed by spring high tunnel crops of lettuce, Asian greens, herbs and many more treats. We are looking forward to the harvest.

Other plans include a new pole barn to house our equipment and shop, so that the old barn can be cleared out. This will allow more room for processing vegetables and construction of a fermentarium. Future production of fermented products like kim chi, sauerkraut and pickles is on our radar.

All this while keeping our number one priority, our CSA, loaded with fresh vegetables and fruit. No problem right? We love a challenge and look forward to meeting our goals, but a workforce for the year would help. We still have two apprenticeship positions open, though we have had some nibbles. And we are looking for a qualified person for our seasonal full-time position. If you know anyone who is up to either task, send them to our website's Apprentice page.
