Among the recent goings-on has been the burning of the native grasses on the parts of the farm surrounding our vegetable operation. Burning 175 acres is a two-day job, and we are happy that we were able to keep things tamed. Much of this area drains into our irrigation pond and our fields. Having our water flow through a restored prairie prior to using is yet another benefit of how the Graff family is managing the overall farm.
Our flock of 54 hens has grown from chicks in August to the egg layers of the present. Between these birds and the flock at Urbavore Farm, we are happy to say that we expect to be able to provide egg shares for all those who want this year.
