Heritage Farm -- Store is open..Pork Chop and Rib specials
Hope this email finds you all doing well.
Well….as I told you in a previous e-mail we never discount what Mother Nature might have intended for us lowly old farmers and boy…last week she came with a vengeance! Those teens and twenties for us zone 7 farmers are deadly if you're not prepared. So many of the larger growers were hit with what may soon show to be some very heavy losses and our thoughts and prayers go out to them!! Here at the farm we took a hit on some of our early transplants but the big one was with the loss of all 700 of our tomato transplants!! We had a lot of time and money invested and, even though we had them in a protected (or so we thought) environment, the temps still plunged low enough to wipe them out. We will begin re-seeding and trying to outsource some transplants this week and ask for your prayers and patience for our Summer tomato crop…its gonna come but may be a tad late!
In other news we did manage to get planted a whole host of transplants this week: Onions, kale, cauliflower, beets, chard, spinach, tatsoi, lettuce, radishes, fennel, broccoli, carrots and potatoes to name a few…the plows are turning weekly so keep connected. More to come soon!!
A note about the raw milk…The delivery schedule on the raw milk had to be adjusted so we will need a one week notice on the Wednesday milk orders. The delivery date for Wednesday milk is listed next to the item so check it before you order to make sure it's for a delivery date you can meet. There is no change to the Saturday schedule.
Don't miss the pork chop sale this week and make sure and check out the ready to eat ribs…..they are YUMMY!
Our Spring/Summer 2017 CSA sales will remain open until March 31st. We will begin sales of the Summer/Fall season on April 1st.
That's all for this week…Make sure and check out the facebook page Here to see current photos and tidbits and don't forget to check out the menu below for this weeks ordering!!! We love ya and we need ya!!
