Harvesting the Sun
Though the lack of sunlight stalled us in June, our farm rebounded nicely in July bringing us a bounty of vegetables, milk, chicken, garlic and flowers. Our son, Timber, has even built a vegetable stand which he has placed at the bottom of our driveway so that he can market some of our wonderful products.
Timber's Farm Stand Timber with a Happy Customer
Timber's Farm stand is usually open from 3 pm - 7 pm (self-serve mostly). If you see the 'Burma Shave' signs up and down the road peppered with our products for sale, you can be assured that we are open for business. Otherwise, you will find all our goods in the Woodshed/Farm Store where we also keep our frozen chicken, pesto, eggs, pre-ordered raw milk and Timber's beautiful Cat Toys (hand crafted, using our own certified organic chicken feathers).
Products Available at the Farm
We used to sell products at Farmers Markets, but have decided that we would rather find ways to bring our customers to the farm. We encourage bulk purchases (at discounted prices!). Contact us if you are interested in bulk quantities of Certified Organic: garlic, potatoes, chicken, turkey, or cut flowers.
