Do you want to know something embarrassing? Our very first CSA pick-up day EVER was held in our dining room! Yup. We had one small commercial fridge, just big enough to hold everything, and it was a blazing 96 degrees outside. There was no place for us to go except into... the farmhouse. No store, no giant fridge, no cooler. It was kind of embarrassing but also good because everyone was pretty forgiving (and happy) If you were a member last year, you will remember the juggling act we made of pick-up days! This year has me so excited to offer the space of our Country Store and a soon-to-be walk-in cooler. There will be so much more storage! Not to mention we’ll be at the @icfarmersmarket on Wednesday nights too if Wellman is too far of a drive for ya! Even though that first day was rough, the food was good, the flowers beautiful, and we love growing it for you. There are still a few spots left in our CSA program this year. We’d love to have you join us! Just head to www.underatinroof.com to sign up. Summer begins June 11th! That will be here so soon!! #UATRxWildFarmCSA #UATRflowers
This is where I’ve been spending all of my days for the past several weeks, especially as we get closer and closer to crunch time. It’s not necessarily picturesque nor does it even closely resemble the adorable greenhouse we used to have that receives thousands of likes and comments. I doubt this picture will receive hardly any engagement because it’s not the best of the best, but it’s my reality right now. Not everything is the best of the best around here - hardly! It’s the unattractive place that creates all of the immeasurable beauty out in the field, that feeds our family, friends, and neighbors. It’s where everything on the farm starts. I have so much work ahead of me to finish in the next handful of weeks, days even, and I am feeling the pressure. It’s also the greatest and most valuable work I’ve ever done in my life (besides being a mother!). Are you excited to get to planting or to already be out there? I am so ready!! Maybe next year we’ll finally have the field pre-prepped enough to plant early For now, we are three weeks ahead of schedule from last year! Phew!! #UATRgreenhouse #farmreality
Throw back to when these three big kids were little, and Norah’s hair resembled Shirley Temple’s ringlet curls...They still love helping around the farm and we’ve added an extra little girl to the crew that loves to help as well. It’s hard to believe we’ll be getting our spring chicks soon when there’s still a blanket of snow on the ground. If you’re interested in farm fresh local food and would like to hear more about our CSA program, head over to @underatinroof for more information. We had a blast partnering up with them last year and are looking forward to another great year of providing quality meats and veggies to our members! #uatrxwildfarmcsa #springfever
My weekly flowers straight from the farm never disappoint! We’re in the middle of our summer CSA, and are excited to offer fall shares as well. If you’re interested in signing up, check out @underatinroof for details. #uatrxwildfarmcsa ... (My comfort zone 1/2 face photos always inspired by #wilsonwilson )
