Hello, Friends of the Farm!

Lots of little seedlings growing on the farm – destined for 2016 Summer CSA and farmers’ markets in Port Perry and Lakefield!  As predicted – the greenhouse is getting greener…

Many of you will recall that Jessalynn has taken a new Jersey calf under her wing.  Here is a picture of Cinderelly out learning how to lead (with a little help from Dime).
