Our WWOOFers got the chance to visit the Kanabec County Fair, and get their picture taken with the largest Dala Horse in North America. They can now check that off on their bucket list.
Hi CSA members
Our Organic Certification agency, MOSA (Midwest Organic Services Association) has updated their logo. I like it. It’s colorful, earthy, whimsical, and professional. Plus, I think it looks really good with our updated brand look too. Nice job, MOSA.
On Wednesday July 10, we welcomed a bus full of 21 seniors who came up from the cities to visit our farm. Sapsucker Farms was one of the stops on their “Day in the Country” tour of East Central Minnesota, organized by St. Paul Community Education.
About half of the individuals grew up on a farm, so they really appreciated what we are doing on our farm. Our small, diverse, and back-to-the-basics way of farming is very much like the small family farms they are familiar with. It was an enjoyable day for all.
Broccoli – the broccoli crop is looking good. [SLAP – got one!] But one thing you need to know about broccoli, is that each plant has it’s own timing on when the head is ready. Then in just a matter of days, the beautiful head of broccoli will turn into a beautiful head of flowers. It would be really convenient if all of the plants were ready at the same time, then stay that way for about a week. But that’s not the way it works. So, I’ll be cutting the broccoli heads as they are ready, so there will be small quantities coming your way as it is ready.
Hi CSA share members,
Due to the late start of the growing season, some of the crops need a little extra time to grow. So it’s a good time for the farmer to take a break from the farm as well.
We spent five days visiting our good friends up in Alaska, and got in on some combat fishing for salmon. The freezer if full of 60 lbs of fresh salmon, and we are refreshed and ready to get back to the business of farming.
