Welker Chick Hatching @ Windy Meadow Farms

This morning at Windy Meadow Farms the chicks started hatching. We woke up this morning with one hatched and at 5:30 a.m. a 2nd chick was hatching. This is a very exciting time of the year for our family having the planting season start and having new baby additions to our farm. This is the second Spring for us hatching chicks. Last years chicks are now the mothers and fathers to these new chicks and very pretty chicks at that.  Breeding them is fun seeing what their babies look like and finding out if they are pullets or cockerels (which are our next hens and roosters).   Once the new clutch has completely hatched we will send a "baby" photo update.

Spring Planting Full Force

We are in full Spring planting at the farm.  We have transplanted from the greenhouse all: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant & herbs.  We have seed planted:peas, beans, summer squash, lettuces & greens.  This weekend will be filled with more planting.  At the farm we are hatching chicks and enjoying the wonderful rain this week.  Have a wonderful Memorial Day Holiday weekend. 

Sunday, April 7, 2013

Even after the cold snap we had during the week.  The weekend has turned out to be a true Spring with lots of work getting done at the farm.  We were able to finish transplanting the few blueberry bushes and some of the strawberry patch.  The new covering to the greenhouse/high tunnel is coming soon.

Monday, April 1, 2013

What a beautiful weekend!  We took advantage of the spring like weather and Tom plowed up the area that this years lettuce/greens will grow as well as getting the ground ready for transplanting the berries for 2013. 

Enrollment is under way for the 2013 season...make sure you get your CSA membership spot.
