A "Tractor" by any other name

Hello Farm Friends,

Things on the farm are hopping! Can that be so in February? The answer is YES! Of course the winter CSA keeps us busy harvesting and replanting the hoop-houses, but we also keep ourselves busy starting seeds for summer crops like tomatoes and peppers, planning for the upcoming summer season, setting out hay for the calves and other daily chores.

One of our family cows Anna had a baby in late December. She was all red and full of spunk! When we asked Dylem what we should name her it was a resounding…."Tractor". Thinking that we hated to see such a lovely calf go through life with a plain name like that Jim came up with some other options…like "Massey" or "Fergie" (for Massey Ferguson, a brand name of "tractor"). Dylem bit on "Fergie", so we now have royalty (at least she used to be right?) at Rocky Glade Farm with our newest heifer calf, Fergie. You can check out her photo in our photo of the week.

Simply Summer CSA
Last year having a baby was our something new…this summer we are starting something else new on the farm…a summer CSA!

Here is a quick overview of the summer CSA:
--It is a 10 week, weekly pickup CSA running from June 3 to August 5th.
--Three pickup options…Tuesday or Thursday on the farm in Eagleville or Saturday at the Factory in Franklin.
--Spaces are limited. To sign up for the summer CSA send us an email with your pickup day preference, and then send in a $20.00 deposit by April 1st.
