ARTfarm Summer Lovin’…YOU! 3-6pm Today

Open 3-6pm today. We are nowhere near to selling out at the end of the farmstand at this time of year, so feel free to come later in the afternoon and get fresh greens, herbs, flowers, fruit etc.!

This is an unusual summer for us: in the last three years, we have not had large leaf lettuce or cucumbers for sale in July. At our location, it takes more water and nutrition per pound of harvested food to keep the vegetable plants happy in the summer months. We are experimenting more this year (have you all been enjoying the sweet corn?) to see which crops will survive and thrive during the hotter summer months. It also helps our farm to be more sustainable in supporting our family if we can continue to market more items during the summer months. It’s a delicate balance between working ourselves into burnout vs. having a good seasonal break as farmers. Part of what makes it worthwhile to continue to hustle in the summer is the appreciative customers we see at the farmstands on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A big thanks to all of you who continue to visit us during the summer!
