We certainly hope everyone is having a good start to the 2013 year, the weather has certainly been a topic of conversation. Temperatures in the 60's in February has caused several plants and flowers to start budding out let alone give us 'Spring Fever'. We keep reminding ourselves it is February and we don't recall a year that we have not had frost in the month of April.
We currently have pick up locations at the East Nashville Market on Wednesday afternoons, Our Farm on Thursdays after 5pm and Fridays after 5pm, Saturdays we have pick up at the Franklin Farmers Market from 8-1pm. We are also offering delivery service in the Murfreesboro/Rutherford County area on Fridays and a pick up location at the Stones River Locally Grown location on Wednesday evenings. We have made arrangements with Pa Bunks for a pick up point probably on Fridays.
We've been busy this winter removing some old buildings on the farm to have more ground available for crops. We eventually will have a high tunnel installed but this season we are going to use low tunnels to start spring crops under.

Another question we get asked is, "How do you and Ben do all of this?" We have had temporary help in the past years but this March a young man stopped by our place asking if we had any work he could do. I was just heading out to set onions and decided to give him a chance, the rest of the story is "he is a blessing" to us. He is adapting well to farm work and is 'growing' with us. His name is Steven and you might get to see him at some of the Farmers Market we attend. He and Ben converted an old livestock feed wagon into a t-post storage area/vegetable picking shelter that will make it alot easier for us to get the crops out of the field.
