Our Pollination Habitat is at Full Bloom!And

I just have to say, "Is this a place you would like to visit?"  How can you say no?

Our farm is at full bloom and open to the public every Saturday at 1 PM.  And don't forget we are on the ASAP Family Farm Tour Sept. 19-20 featuring Nancy Adamson representing the Xerces Society. Check out this link for more info.

Hop Harvest, Blueberries, Pollinators, And Monarchs

Our hop harvest was completed on June 30 after five hours of picking.  All of our hops this year were delivered to Lookout Brewing Company where they were added to the boil two hours after the pick.  Talk about fresh!  Can't wait to try this release which should be in about 3 weeks.

Our blueberry season is coming to a close soon.  We finally did open up and had around 20 pickers come through and they seem to get more than the birds usually do.  

We had several families come to enjoy an outing together while picking buckets of blueberries.  Everyone seem to have a great time.  We still have about another week or so left so if you want to come out, give us a call.

Now is the time that all three of our pollinator fields and our native flowering hedgerow are really starting to glow with flowers and bees.
We also have lots of butterflies in the butterfly house as well as 50 brand new monarchs that are just now hatching!  It is truly a beautiful time of the year to visit our farm.  So much to see, so many pictures to take.  Plan on coming soon. You won't forget it.
