Happy Mothers Day!

Hello Farm Friends,

It is our sincere hope that each of you are safe after this past weekend's horrible rain and flooding. I know it is going to take a long time before many of our everyday surroundings are put back to normal. Many fellow farmers have suffered much damage to their farms, homes and some their entire crop planting. Many of our customer's homes were damaged, but thankfully I think everyone is safe. Please know our thoughts and prayers for recovery are with you all.

Here at Rocky Glade Farm we received about 10 inches of rain. Some of our fields were covered in water for a while, but it was mostly ponding water instead of fast moving rapids. We had some fence damage and will lose some crops, but compared to others we are so very blessed. Thanks for all of your emails and concern.

Happy Mother's Day to all the hard working moms out there. Recently a group of ladies and I were trying to plan a get together for a friend who is moving. We all agreed we could make it on Sunday May 9th, none of us realized it was Mother's Day. I guess that pretty much sums up Motherhood. Rarely do you think of yourself first. I hope Sunday is a sweet day for all you moms out there, may you truly feel loved and special!

Strawberries
This is our first year to try strawberries and so far so good. The berries inside our hoophouses are really in peak performance right now. Strawberries are available on the farm on Tuesday afternoons from 3-6, through Stones River Market, and on Saturday at the Franklin Farmers Market from 8-1. We offer the berries in pints for 3.00 and quarts for 5.00. Our variety is Chandler, a super tasty fresh market berry. This berry is a great for fresh eating, freezing, cooking or canning, but be sure to use them fast as Chandlers do not hold very well for more than 2-3 days.
