Winter is Upon Us

Where did the year go?  We started the year with 5 shares which has grown to 13 shares and 1 workshare.  We are now feeding 15 families a week…that includes our family.

We were very busy…tilling and planting in February and March, harvesting and more planting in April and May, and in June arrived our incredible interns…Zoe Larissa and Zoe Elizabeth.  Steph and Holden were our resident interns as well.  What a great summer we had growing vegetables, raising turkeys and hogs and harvesting eggs.  We had Scone Saturdays, and Farmune dinners on Friday nights.  We had campfires in intern village and even had a boat trip to New Fork Lake.  Farmers Markets in Pinedale, Jackson, Big Piney and Bondurant.

Greenhouse 2 was built, cultivated and began producing in October.  We will be growing year ’round, trialing different varieties for cold tolerance.  We have already begun to receive applications for our internship program and hope to work with the NRCS on another greenhouse for 2011.  Exciting times at Painted Sage Farm.
