Winding down

Sorry for the long delay in posts. It's been a busy fall season. The shorter days and colder temps have slowed the pace down a bit. It's hard to get everything done in a day before it gets dark.

We've extended our market season this year with the addition of five indoor markets at the Oddfellows hall in the village. It's been pretty good. Traffic has been decent and sales are in line with what I was anticipating. Two more to go and we'll be done. The dates for the next markets are November 8th and 22nd.

We should have produce available through the end of December. For orders just give us a call and we'll make arrangements for delivery.

The extended nice weather is giving us a little bit of a break on getting our fields cleared and cover cropped. hopefully by the end of this week we'll have it all done.

So overall it's turning out to be a decent year. this was a difficult season. Cool, wet spring conditions and the lack of a real summer made for challenging growing conditions. We made adjustments accordingly throughout the year to compensate for the conditions. it seemed to have worked. It's not a banner year but depending on how sales go in the next few weeks we could beat our numbers for last year.

Just starting to think about next year. We have some excitings prospects coming up. I'll fill you in on that later.

For now we're concentrating on doing the best we can this year.

Keep well,

Farmer John
