First Farmers Market of 2017

The first Farmers Market at the Nevada County Certified Growers Market was wonderful.  Live music, the sun was shinning and there were lots of folks excited to be out enjoying the local goods.  For our first market we had artichokes, early garlic, pea shoots and sunflower shoots.  We appreciate all who stopped by to say hello and welcome us to our new market.

First farmers market of the 2017 season.  Not much but we will have more soon.

The farming season has been a slow start with all the rain and clouds.  We are excited to have some crops coming on soon and we will have salad mix and arugula available at this next market Saturday the 22nd.

Tomatoes (Brandywine, Oxheart, Sungold, Sweetie and San Marzano) inter-planted with lettuce.

This spring we are looking forward to having more artichokes, pea shoots, sunflower shoots, spring mix and arugula.  Red Russian Kale and spinach are coming soon.  Also, the tomatoes are in the greenhouse and our nursery greenhouse, built from reclaimed materials, has tons of starts waiting to go into the ground.
