A busy week here on the farm: children back to school, harvesting onions and potatoes for fall, covering the winter high tunnel with plastic, mowing, tilling and planting cover crops.   With still so much to do before our first frost.

We will be offering our Full Bounty Fall Share this year, with all the best that Milkweed Farm has to offer.   The Fall Share begins Thursday, October 29th and runs for 6 weeks, ending on Thursday December 3rd.   The share will include a large offering of Root Vegetables, such as storage onions, potoatoes, carrots, beets, winter squash, garlic, and greens, plus other veggies.  You will also receive 3 Milkweed Farm Pasture Raised Chickens, weekly eggs, bi-weekly Farmhouse Granola, Fall Herbal Tonics such as Elderberry Syrup, Fire Cider and Marigold Soaps.  On top of all of that Wholesome Holmstead’s yogurt and cheeses will be in each share.   The cost for the 6 weeks is $500.   Shares are limited to 20.   Email Lucretia if interested.

The shares are still abundant with a mix of summer and fall crops to enjoy.
