Jeremy met some goats on a farm field trip to Foggy Hollow Farm!
We've been learning, building, painting, fixing, and dancing this winter, and now it's all about to sprout in the 2015 season!
Our minds are already inside that sunny greenhouse full of baby lettuce, chard, spinach, and kale.... And we're daydreaming of the sweet day when we'll step outside and plant seeds in the soil for carrots, beets, and radishes. Please oh please contribute to Project Greenhouse on Indiegogo.com. Every dollar counts as we attempt the improbable, to attain this beautiful glass greenhouse in which we'll grow even more plants and food for Nashville, teach folks about the process, and expand our team of folks of ALL abilities. Go ahead, you might even get some sweet swag!
Even though the fields are done, a lot's been happening behind the scenes here! The guys have been gamely showing up to work on their shifts, taking care of those chickens, making compost out of frozen greens, working on the new farm cabin, and practicing market skills for the 2015 Farmers' Markets!
Yes, that's plural markets. We'll be applying for multiple markets this year, so here's hoping you'll catch us a couple of times a week around town!
Folks have been coming out in the masses to kick their heels up at our December and January farm dances. We couldn't have asked for better turn out. Here's to you, you fine dancers, musicians, and farm supporters.
Don't miss our last winter dance, February 21st! We'll be taking the month of March off and resuming our hoe-down shenanigans in April.
Farmer Rachel has been holding down the fort solo until her new partner in crime arrives. We said goodbye to the lovely Mary Lindsay. She's off to go full-time on her home farm project with her husband, Mr. Mary Lindsay (also known as Graham).
We took our farm field trip to visit Foggy Hollow Farm right before Mary Lindsay's last day!
The new farm manager will be here so soon - February 2nd to be exact. We'll keep you in suspense about his true identity until we meet him ourselves, as he's truckin' down from Michigan to farm with us!
Finally, the time has come to start thinking about signing up for your 2015 Old School Farm CSA share!
