Farm Newsletter April

This Saturday is our Spring Plant Sale here on the farm. We are excited and a bit nervous about opening the farm while there is so much left to be done. We still have plenty of beds to plant and there are still a few that need mending. We are in the early stages of getting the new playground built and ready for this seasons of kids and good farm fun. The list is long, but our seedlings are ready and we have some lovely hanging flowering baskets, perennials, herbs and flowers that need a good home for the summer.

So if you are so inclined come on out Saturday to the farm for some great plants for your garden as well as a view of spring work in progress.

Note: Before coming to the farm be sure and check our website for any changes due to weather before making the trip to the farm.
