It's good to have extra hands. So much is ready, all at once, in this odd growing year. We're still picking and trying to jam raspberries, and the nanking cherries were soooo ready for picking. So, put the Sisters to work on a lovely summer evening! Niece Meg was interested in seeing the process of making jam or jelly so the sisters picked and Meg and I dripped the juice and discussed the process. Too busy with tonights' Friday Night Farmers Market to actually make jelly, so the lovely red juice got frozen for now! Next, the Evans sour cherries are just about ready for picking and yes, the raspberries are still going!
Down at Aagaard Farms we are busy planting, growing and tending gardens, chickens, goats, pigs and more! We sell direct to our customers through a Community Supported Agriculture program for families who don't have time or space to grow their own produce.
We practice sustainable growing using organic practices. Our desire is to bring fresh, naturally good food from our farm to your table. We are excited to share what's happening on the farm ... here on THE VINE!
