We are full on into summer schedules where my kids, my friends and my staff have to coordinate and accommodate all our travels and desires for breaks from the heat and long hours. Farming is so intense all year, but summer is like a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle. We are challenged to come up with incredible product popping out of the ground and growing in herds and flocks, getting it to the public with the right storage freshness and presentation and somehow simultaneously planting, birthing, and preparing for more as the summer heat releases her grasp come September evenings. The breaks are imperative simply to stop for five seconds and reflect on and order it all.
So all that to say we are working round the clock, loving the heat and sometimes the rain and the supermoon. We will concentrate on the Carrboro Farmer’s markets for the rest of summer. If you want product from Greensboro and/or Saxapahaw, please write us and we’ll work something out. Our vegetables are coming in and beautiful, but as with the rest of the animal kingdom, we are downsizing and catering to our strong retail market in Carrboro/Chapel hill. Onions are cured. Sweet potatoes are planted for fall. There are still greens and beets and tomatoes and cukes. This week we have fresh lamb and goat, so come see us tomorrow and stock up for the fourth! We even have four bbq hogs for your upcoming pig pickin boxed and trussed and ready to go. Ok, enough babbling. Happy holiday this next week. Enid and Quinn and I leave next Saturday for two weeks so please support us and visit Alena and Brad in Carrboro.
