This week we started out with mild weather. So I took the opportunity to clear electric fence lines and cut down small trees that were taking over a pasture on the rented farm. We keep our sheep on a farm north of here. The farm has good pasture and fencing. Also, the landowners appreciate our rule of "no chemicals," so it works out great.

We are in need of a root cellear, so I've been working on that as well. I hope that by the end of this harvest season we will have a nice place to store potatoes, apples, and other things.

New for 2015.

This year, we will be updating our website weekly with that week's list of available produce and meat products. (Any upcoming chicken processing days will be mentioned as well, or you can find all of this year's processing days here.) You can receive the list in your email inbox weekly by signing up in the sidebar.

You can respond to the list by email (horsevines@embarqmail.com) to let us know which products you'll be wanting that week. Orders taken this way will take priority over sales at the Farmer's Market. We hope that this way we'll be able to better provide for your needs.


We will be offering more vegetable choices this year. We've put in our order for spring vegetable seeds including spinach, kohlrabi, collards, lettuce, kale, and pac choi. Our first batch of broilers for the year should be ready by the first of May. We'll have fresh pork by the beginning of May, as well. Due to the early freshening of two of our does, we also have goat's milk available a little sooner than expected this year! Contact us for milk share information.
