Fall is upon us and with it brings a very busy season for the farm. The cooler weather brings the end of the year's harvest for 2020, apple picking for apple pressing, and preparation of the farm for the winter ahead.
On Saturday September 19th the PB Farm family invited friends, family and the local community to the farm for apple picking and pressing. Guests had the opportunity to ride the hay wagon out to the apple orchard to pick apples, followed by apple pressing. Younger guests were able to jump in the bounce house or play on the playground.The afternoon ended with a fabulous pot-luck dinner.
Melissa is in the process of applying for a High Tunnel Incentive grant from the NRCS. This would enable the farm to further extend their growing season.She is generally busy doing farm chores, canning, making soap, jam, cheese or working in one of the many gardens. With a farm and a job, she is relieved that the children have finally returned back to a semi-normal school routine.
Dean is currently working on many various projects around the farm, including building a chicken-plucker for a processed whole fryer sale. He also has his hands full with all the on-going maintenance of the farm buildings and equipment, plus an off-farm job.
The farm is currently accepting beef orders for this November's beef sale. All beef raised on the farm is naturally fed grass/hay and minimal grain, no hormones or chemicals. Beef is sold by quarter or half cow at $4/lb plus wrapping.
The farm is looking forward to the 2021 season. January kicks off the year with a 2021 Beef sale, followed by Maple syrup season. Spring will bring the opening of the farm's second Airbnb farm-stay rental, goat yoga, 2nd season of the 20 BOX, 3rd CSA season, and (hopefully) a new high tunnel. Summer will host a second beef sale for 2021 and an annual Pig Roast.
