Well, it's been an eventful fall/winter here at the farm. This is due in part to the arrival of our little guy pictured with his Mama. The official scoop : Asa William Coleman born 10/28/2008 12:20pm. 8 pounds 4 ounces.
He's just hit 14 pounds at 3 months in. We're very excited about his arrival, but we also realize that we're going to need to change what and how we do things with regards to the farm. As some of you may or may not know, the farm is basically an extra full time endeavor on top of our paying jobs. With Asa's arrival we have extra load on top of that. Rather than hand him off to grandma all the time (which we'll do a bit of) we want to be there with him as he grows up. This has resulted in the tough decision that we're not going to participate in the Ballston Spa Farmer's Market this year. We may act as a fill in vendor from time to time with the sales of our blueberries, but beyond that we'll likely be opening the stand to sell berries/garlic/ and any excess. We haven't set times yet, but we will post when we know.
Other things afoot:
- We'll be attending/selling from at least 2 garlic festivals this autumn.
- Look for a site redesign for online garlic sales.
- The farm stand is getting a much needed makeover this summer. Goodbye homasote.
- We're looking for a new name....more on that below.
