From our hearts to your plates. Check out this great aerial view of the farm from last Fall. We're transitioning another 10 acres to the north, and hopefully the next bird's-eye view will contain the new section too!

Kankakee Market Update 4/25

First cucumbers!

First cucumbers!

It looks like mother nature has the final word today and the Kankakee Farmers' Market will be canceled.  We WILL be in the sunshine at the Frankfort Country Market tomorrow thought!  Until then, we will be tying cucumber plants inside :)

Spring

We are welcoming Spring with open arms.  

These weeks find us seeding like crazy, prepping greenhouses for tomato transplants, fixing tractors, prepping the packing shed, and crashing hard at night.  

I'd like to take a moment to thank Rabideau Grain and AHW John Deere for their help getting this farm what it needs!  It means a lot to me and our customers that you take the time to help smaller farms.  

Crystal and I had a great time at Moksha Yoga in Chicago talking about our CSA and detoxing.  It is always a pleasure to come up to visit the studio.  

Before I head outside I thought I'd share a few pics from the past week or two!
