Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Christmas has come and gone and our focus is now on 2021. Chuck and I, along with our team, have been busier than bees on a flower farm. The weather has not been cooperating very well for us this season. The fields have required a lot of our attention to making sure our vegetables are taken care of properly and protected to the best of our ability. The good news is we will be installing 3 new high tunnels soon that will mitigate some of our weather concerns and provide sheltered areas for growing.
Spring planning is also underway. We are reviewing our planting schedule and are looking forward to many more beautiful harvests.
Have you tried ordering on our website at www.downtoearthorganicsllc.com? If not, visit the site, see what is in stock, order and pick it up. If you have others in your neighborhood that would also be interested, we can arrange delivery to a designated location! If you are looking for wholesale ordering, simply request access and we will happily grant it.
Our first cauliflower is ready. Due to the weather, we only have small heads available at a reduced price. Hopefully, we will have larger heads as the crop progresses.
There have been many improvements that may go unnoticed but, as the saying goes, “A good lather is half the shave”. Infrastructure such as drainage, irrigation, and land clearing continues, as we utilize more and more of our ten acres. Our barn has been transformed into a functional facility where we will process our harvests and prepare for packaging and delivery. The horse stalls have been removed, and we are now transitioning those areas into workspaces and storage.
If you are in the area of 150 Louis Priester Rd, Montgomery, we would love an opportunity to give you a tour!
I would like to thank everyone who has reached out to us since we started and the kind reception we have received from the other growers and CSA’s. We appreciate the love!
We hope everyone has a safe and healthy 2021 and look forward to hearing from you.
