Old99Farm: Old 99 Farm, week of Aug 17 2014
Bumper crop of cukes, zukes and tomatoes, oh and eggplants too. Peppers here but not in abundance yet.
Regular greens too, see list.
Getting a load of 200 bales of straw in the next hour or two, quick notice again from my farmer source. Bedding for the cows indoors for the winter. Can anyone come by tomorrow tuesday for a couple hours to help? Would really make the difference if we can get this in the barn before Wed when it’s supposed to rain.
If you ordered roasting chickens, please come soon to pick up. I took the remaining 60 birds to be butchered today so the freezers will be fuuulll.
Maremma pups are lovely. still have 4, two males, two females, have reduced price to $300. Interested?

Martin's Farmstand: Quality food
In spite of the cool weather there is a lot of produce here. Dad just brought the first Summercrisp pears over and there is lots of beans, peppers, tomatoes and so much more. At this moment there are 60 different kinds fresh vegetables etc. on the stand.
So what does hi quality food look like? I would answer that first it needs to do its intended jobs well which include providing nourishment to our bodies so that we can go about our work with health and energy. It needs to be fresh and should be not be contaminated with chemicals. It needs to be picked at just the right stage of growth and be handled with gentle careful hands in such a way as to protect it from damage or contamination. I hope you use the energy you get from this good food for loving and bright purposes. I am constantly working to give you the best I can. I judge quality by the way the plant and fruit look, by how it feels and smells, finally I taste my produce frequently. I also value your input- please tell me what you think. Do tell me if something is disappointing even if you do not wish for me to give you money back as this helps me in refining what I do. Daniel

Princeton Farm Fresh: The Market is Open
Today is the day we go back to school! As homeschooler’s we get to make our own schedule and find the timing that works best for us. This start of school year finds me more apprehensive and a bit sad. My journey with homeschooling is drawing down, and my kiddos are starting new paths. Hannah graduates this year, and Jonah is in college full time. Next year it will be just Eric and I.
Part of our mission in starting the farm was to keep our children close. Being military we have always moved around without a home base. Princeton is our home base now – I am not moving again! We have purposely done most of the work on our farm ourselves, in an effort to really make this OUR home. We have fenced and cross fenced six acres this summer, all by ourselves. We are preparing to put up a greenhouse. We are making memories in the hope that the kids will one day take over the sustainable farm. A farm that sustained their father and I emotionally, physically and financially. That is what farming is about in my mind. Creating a Legacy that can be passed down, creating a financially viable way for your children and their children to make a living.
I hope one day that my grandchildren will live on this farm, spending days working and playing. It is our little slice of heaven. I am using these dreams to pull me through this time of transition for the kids and myself. Where did the time go?
See you on Friday,
