On Farm Market reopens soon!

Our On Farm Market will re-open on Wednesday, April 3rd. We’re open every Wednesday morning 9- 12 April through mid December. This year we’ll also be open at the farm the first Saturday morning of each month, April  through December, 9 am – 12 pm. We will not attend the Uptown Market in Columbus, so we hope you Columbus folks can make it up to Pine Mountain to shop with us here some Wednesdays or Saturdays!

Sowing several kinds of basil last month for the plant sale. The Krishna Tulsi, which is a Red Holy Basil, will be a new variety for us!

Pig has started joining us at the farm, daily. It only takes 20 minutes to get him from our house to the farm in the stroller, as opposed to the 2 minute walk it used to be.

The 2019 Crew at lunch on a chilly day last week. We are thrilled to have part time workers Jenn and Wendi come back this season. Zane and Shana are the new full time apprentices, both are from suburbs north of Atlanta. These four have helped get 1000s of spring transplants in the ground, such as onions, chard and broccoli.

Hope to see y’all here soon!

Chris, Jenny and Tulsi

  1. Jenny and Chris,

    We hope that you are doing well.

    When does the Spring season Thursday fruit/vegetable pick up begin this year? We are heading to Oregon next week and won’t be back until the week before Easter, so we might be missing the beginning of the season (like last year). If it starts soon, we wanted to let some friends get our share while we are gone but would need to know what dates to tell them. I have a feeling it starts in May, which really works out better for us, but just wanted to check in.

    Thanks for your help.

    Bob

    • Hey Bob

      The first pickup will be on Thursday April 18th. Hopefully yall will be back by then. Looking forward to seeing you. The
      Oregon trip sounds nice, have a good time. If you’re not going to be back feel free to send whoever and we will make sure they get
      your food. take care

      chris
