Produce is looking good.

Hey Folks,
Hope your having a thoughtful Memorial Day. We have been very busy out here on the farm. Recently(by hand)  I hoed 5, four hundred foot rows of corn and placed a little organic lime around each corn stalk. Rick Holcome and Tim Bryan (thanks fellas) placed a new fence in the field for the cucumbers and the plants are already up and going. Also put straw down around the strawberries in hopes of our second round of fruit. Our heirloom tomatoes are looking good and should be ready to harvest in 2 weeks. I don't think I had a chance to thank my wife and kids for helping plant the herb garden.  Thanks.  All organic mint, oregano, thyme, basil, parsley, will be hand picked to sell as well. Last week I moved our sprinkler system around the field to give the crops a little extra water. Our water comes from a 300ft well and the tested almost pure. No clorine, No floride. Just great drinking water. I'll post the testing results as soon as I can scan them in . I also have a copy of the water report for you to read on site. I wanted to let you know that we will be open in 2 weeks but please call before you come out to make sure our produce is ready.
Thanks and we look forward to meeting you,

Rick and Tim

Please take a look at these two fellas. (L to R )Tim Bryan and Rick Holcomb. I want all to know that I could not have done any of this farming without their help. They are my farming mentors and I value the knowledge, expertise, labor, and friendship, that they so selflessly bring to the table. If our produce tastes great its because of them. If its lousy, blame me.

2 acres are planted !!!

I know its been a long time since I sat down to write a message. I'm sorry for that, but I've been to busy and  tired at night to write. I am proud to say that our farm is taking shape and our crops are starting to work through the earth. Its a great feeling to know that all this work might bring healthy food for our family and friends.
I thank each of you for your cheers and support.
Farmer Ben
