Happy New Year to all!
These past few weeks have been wonderful as we were able to spend quality time with family and create many lasting memories. Seeing the joy on my boy’s faces on Christmas day is something you just can’t beat.
The newest farm update is that we recently bought the ½ of land located directly behind our current plot. We close on the property at the end of the month and are currently exploring all our options for what we want to do with the land. One thing that is for sure, we will be constructing a building on the back plot. The backside of the building will be my work space and will house a washing station, processing space, packaging area, as well as the walk-in cooler.
I’m really excited about the front portion of the building because it will be our FARM STAND! This is something we wanted to have all along and purchasing this land allows us to offer this amenity. We will sell our produce directly through the farm stand and will also sell other locally sourced products.
The microgreen operation is expanding and doing well. Le Jardin used my China Rose Radish microgreens as an in ingredient on their New Year’s Eve menu and I’ve been meeting with other metro restaurants about my products. I’ve also been experimenting with various grow mediums to find out which yields the highest quality product. My seed inventory keeps expanding and this week I’m experimenting with broccoli, red cabbage, and swiss chard. If you’re interested in trying some of my product just let me know!
Cheers to healthy food, healthy bodies, and healthy spirits throughout 2016.
