The To-Do List

Posted 5/7/2013 10:07pm by Missy VanWormer.

The farm has been crazy busy these last few weeks. From moving and trying to get fence set up, to getting ready for our first Dandelion Festival this weekend. We added two new residents last weekend to the THF family. They are a pair of Mulefoot Hogs named Elmo and Hilde, and for those of you who don't know what the Mulefoot Hogs are, I would invite you to check out the discription at http://www.albc-usa.org/cpl/mulefoot.html They are a very rare type of pig, prized for their lard and meat. We are very lucky to be able to add them to our herd. 

Soon we will be planting and getting ready for our main growing season. We are working on tilling the old corn field from last year to make room for the CSA garden. We will put out an update soon for the potato and onion plantings in case anyone wants to stop out and volunteer for planting, We would be happy to have you.

The new run of Micros look like they are going to be late. I didn't get my replacement seeds when I was hoping I would and then they were started late. So, while they may not be ready for the weekend, they will for sure be ready later that week and we do not predict any lull in production after that. We will be going to market saturday, May 18th, and should have the micros there.

Last but not least, THF is still looking for a farm intern for this year. If you or someone you know would like to give farming a try, please send us an email and tell us about yourself. We have quit the project list this year, so I would anticipate a vaired learning experience. Contact us for more information.
