NEWS FROM THE FARM

We're looking forward to a short February thaw over the next few days. The snow and ice is not melting fast enough and we're tired of slipping and sliding on the roads and paths around the farm. Over the next few weeks we'll start our onion seeding in the greenhouse.  Onions are the first crops of the season to get seeded, because it takes so long for them to grow! 

Farmer Galen is now officially walking (and trudging around the farm in his boots, which is quite a feat!)  Here he is getting a feel for the Case tractor.  (While he looks like a big boy in this picture, he is only 13 months old!)
