New Irrigation System

As part of a USDA grant we are beginning a new project on the farm. This new irrigation system will hopefully make watering the fields easier and more automated. We hope that waking up at 11 at night remembering that we didn’t shut of the water to the greenhouse or field will be a thing…

Spring at last!

Winter has hung on this year! Fields are only just beginning to bear off from all the snow we received.
