Welcome 2015

Hello 2015 farming season. We are back on-line here at the farm, enjoying the ever lengthening days and warm January temperatures. This year should prove to be exciting, if nothing else, as we continue our plans to venture into the fermented foods business.

As always, our CSA comes first, and we have begun accepting deposits for the coming year. Act quick to sign up, as the enthusiasm for local farm products and CSA membership continues to grow in the KC area.

Sunrise is finding us feeding the chickens, ordering seeds and equipment, managing memberships, planning for our certified kitchen construction, interviewing apprentices and waiting for the sun to warm the farm. Afternoons have been a delight lately, with sunshine and warmth providing assistance to what could be frigid winter work.

As the sun sets we get to enjoy a walk around the farm with Rocky while waiting for the chickens to roost for the night. A good start to the year, and dreams of a one-of-a-kind season.

That good boy, Rocky
