Growing Season Jan 2017


Plants are hunkering down, not willing to grow just yet.
During January there is not enough heat and sunlight for them to grow.
Right about the middle of February the day length, the sunshine and the warmth is enough to kick start them back into growing.
Right now farmers are ordering their seeds or plants and planning for their new plantings.

The Topaz Apple

It’s a known fact that some babies and toddlers like to bite. Thankfully, that’s a phase they grow out of! Some people, however, like their food to bite them back and they never grow out of that. Many people enjoy a flavorful Topaz apple because it has enough flavor to pack a bit of a punch, without being acidic. This spicy apple isn’t a beauty queen by any means, but it’s flavor makes up for that small deficit in spades. It is a crisp and complex eating apple but also cooks well. (We’ve made some fabulous apple crisp with Topaz!) Read more about Topaz, here

    Thank You
  • Hilhof Dairy Bottles- Please be sure when you return the bottles, that the cap with the label on is still attached_ (If the cap is not attached identify the bottles with your name, slide a piece of paper with you name on it in the bottle or write your name on the bottle) You will get two dollars credit for every bottle that comes back with your name attached to the bottle. You will receive $2.00 credit for every bottle returned. If you are returning multiple bottles package them in a way that the bottles do not clang together as they may break.
  • Major Expenses, the software we use cost us at least $6,000 or more this last year. It is one of the few soft wares that allow the farmers to list their own products but it is not designed for our application and consequently we have to put in a minimum of 10 hours additional work each order period generating the reports we need to make the market operational. We would like to put together a team that will develop software that is suited to our application. If you are interested in being part of that team please fill out this form
