Please note that we have changed our phone number to better serve you, our customers. We are switching from a land line to a cell phone, so even if we aren’t at the stand, we can answer and return calls, or if you prefer you can always send us a text. Our new number is 740-408-7750. We kept it similar to the old number, so it won’t be hard to remember. #movingintothe21stcentury
We were finally able to get some field work done today. The fields have been so wet that we haven’t been able to get the tractor through them! Today we were able to disk all of the fields and we even got the first planting of sweet corn in! Woohoo! Hopeful for more dry weather so we can finish the prep work and get these other veggies in!
We are officially closed for the season. Thank you all for your patronage this year! We look forward to seeing you all again next year! #buylocal #shoplocal #localfarm #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom
With as busy as we have been this season, the you-pick has been pretty much picked clean, so we have made the decision to close it for the season. We still have some tomatoes, peppers, butternut squash and pumpkins at the stand for sale. Thank you all for supporting our farm this season, and for spreading the word! Next year, we plan on growing more produce to accommodate all of our new customers!
We were finally able to finish planting this week! Our first corn planting has tassels and is setting on ears 😊 We should be able to open the stand in a couple of weeks with corn, zucchini, squash and cucumbers. Tomatoes, beans and peppers should start to be available in early August. Even though they aren’t ready yet, we are now taking orders for bulk green beans, corn and tomatoes, that way we can start filling orders as soon as they get ready. Watch for an update with our official opening day!🌽🍅🍆🍉🌶️ #locallygrown #shoplocal #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom
Thank you all for your patronage this year, and helping us have a wonderful season! The farm is closed, but we are already planning for next year! See ya then!
Just a friendly reminder that if you are coming the farm this weekend from Columbus, 310 (the Pataskala exit) is closed at the freeway due to construction. You have to take the 158 exit. 310 is also closed in downtown Pataskala for the our annual street fair. If you have any questions on alternate routes you can message us!
We’ve been done planting for a couple weeks, and now we’re patiently waiting (ok not very patiently) for things to get ready. We’ve been working on weed control this past week, so Eric has spent lots of time with his new best friend, the weed eater! Everything is looking good. There are lots of blooms, being pollinated by our very busy honeybees! We’re hoping to open the stand with a few things in a couple of weeks. Keep checking back for updates!
We hope you are all enjoying this unseasonably warm Christmas season! This year we introduced a CSA (Community supported agriculture) program at our farm. We got lots of positive feedback on the program this year! Its time to sign up for the 2016 season. All of the information is on this website, under the CSA tab. If you would like to sign up please follow the instructions. Thank you in advance for your interest in our 2016 CSA!!
Sorry! I updated Facebook first. Here is where we are at:
We’ve found a few of the slicing type of cucumbers, but a lot of pickling cucumbers.
Well we got a surprise last week, green beans! We have some Roma beans and some
zucchini ready. They’re at the stand today on the honor system. Beans $1.35/lb and zucchini $.90/lb. With this heat the beans will wilt pretty fast, so come and get them while they’re fresh!
Farm Stand Update – We now have all three kinds of beans available at the stand (Blue lake, Roma, and Half Runners) We also have zucchini, yellow squash, and pickling cucumbers. We’ve been running on the honor system since business is always slow to to start, but if you have a question you can call the farm number 740-927-7750.
Want to can or freeze beans?? We have a bunch coming on this week! Blue lake, Roma, and half runners, $35/ bushel. This is the best planting that we have, because of all the rain the later plantings didn’t fair as well. Call or message us with orders 😊
We will be opening the you pick fields this weekend Friday, July 31, 10-7, and Saturday, Aug 1 10-7. We have green beans, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, peppers (sweet banana, hot wax, bells, jalapeno, and some chili types), and some eggplant that will be ready. There are also a lot of green tomatoes, and a few that are starting to turn red, but no red ones at this time. The stand will also be open, and we’re starting to find some sweet corn, so we should have that at the stand this weekend as well, along with beans, cucumbers (pickling and slicing), zucchini and yellow squash. Hope to see you this weekend!
Some of us are really enjoying summer! 🙂
