What’s happening on the farm:

Every morning and evening, a family of wild turkeys visits the farm for a nutritious meal; usually from the turkeyscompost heap and the lush weeds that are a signature of organic farming.  They must have figured out that this is a sanctuary, a safe haven, for they don’t seem to mind us farming around them.

As we dig up beds of potatoes, we prepare the soil for a second round of crops; we are a little late getting it in, but we’re hoping to give you a nice crop of broccoli and cabbage in your last boxes this October.
