News from the Farm:
It’s been a busy two weeks here on Millsap Farm! Since we last spoke, the farm crew has taken two field trips. We visited Schwartz Cattle who supply the meat for the Beef Share, to see their adorable Scottish Highland Cattle (They look like teddy bears. Really!), and also friends who run a CSA farm outside of Kansas City. We enjoy every opportunity to learn from the experience of others!
On farm, we have begun renovations on the basement — increasing the community room space, and sprucing everything up. We had quite the surprise last Wednesday morning, when we woke to find that the black pick-up truck we use to take our veggies to market had caught fire overnight! Thankfully nothing else caught fire, and all residents of the farm (human and animal) are safe and sound.
We are returning to Thursday Night Markets at FMO, now that pizza nights are over for the season. Of course, we can still be found at market on Saturday mornings as well from 9 to 1.
And, as ever, the planting, tending, and harvesting of vegetables continues. After a busy summer season, we welcome the slower pace that comes with cooler weather.
