Spring Update on the Farm


overwintered kale
We’ll be back at the Dieppe Market this coming Saturday, April 9th. We’ve got lots of greens in our unheated tunnel with more ready to be planted in their spot.

We’ve also got the sweetest spinach you’ll ever eat, gorgeous kales, and bok choi. Can’t wait to see you at the Market! your farmers, Shannon and Bryan  

Back at Market April 9th!
