We are back after a wet winter and spring full of projects to launch us into this new season. The Vashon Farmers Market has begun, and we are proud of the huge number of salad greens we produced for the opening day. This coming week we will be selling USDA grass fed lamb at the market as well. Come check it out. The big news at the market is that three wine/cider/beer producers who have tasting booths each week at the market. We also hear that the weather is going to be great every Saturday! So come on by and check it out.
Our chickens got ahead of us this Spring, but we are catching up, and just set up a little self-serve egg stand at the corner of 75th and 248th on the way to Gold Beach. So if you need some free range eggs from some frequently moved-onto-new-pasture chickens, stop by and pick some up for $6 a dozen.
Farm news is that we will be growing the corn at Monument this year. It is an honor to be able to do so, and we will have a second peak season farm stand there to compliment the corn. Of course we will have our farm stand up in Burton again. We love Burton.
Other big news is our new intern Dylan Jones. He comes to us with a range of skills that we are happily drawing on, and with a desire to start his own small farm in the near future. He believes we need to hedge our bets on the future, and growing food is a great way to do that. He is joining the small farm revolution, and together we are changing the world one egg at a time.
We look forward to a great season.
