Spring Update from Fields Farm

post by: Debbie Fields March 27, 2019

Well it’s been a wild winter. Snow has finally melted off the fields but there are large piles of snow around the greenhouses. Two small houses did collapse under the weight of heavy snow. Lucky for us we had decided to take a more relaxed approach to farming and had planned for a later start this year. As part of our relaxed approach, the CSA will take 3 weeks off during the season and change to a pack your own bag system. The CSA is open to returning customers and folks in our neighborhood. We will continue to have our Farmstand open to all as soon as we have produce available.

We will be participating with OSU Extension on a berry research project this season. We are excited to have expert help to improve our raspberry and strawberry crops. We will have test plots both in our unheated tunnels and outside in the field.

Starting this season garlic and herb powders will now be available year around. They won’t be ground and mixed until being ordered so will as flavorful and pungent as ever. We have Garlic, Garlic Basil, Seasonal Seasoning and Mira Poix available right now.

We’re looking forward to more spring like weather and seeing the farm come alive in its yearly cycle.
