Posted on July 11, 2013

Phew, where does the time go?! May and June seemed to fly right by with all that asparagus and strawberry picking. But here we are in July and it’s time for a little update. While asparagus is long gone and strawberries are winding down, we’ve got a lot more stuff just starting-so be sure to check here or our Facebook page to see what you can get on the farm. These are just a few pictures from the beginning of the 2013 summer…stay tuned for more frequent updates!
