We’ve been getting plants ready for Farmers Market, which opens in May. This process includes planting seeds, transplanting seedlings to larger containers, and verifying they get the best treatment possible to ensure strong, healthy plants for your garden. If you have any questions, or want to order some plants, text me(Farmer Jean) at 612-245-6271, or email at csa@mymnfarmer.com.

Mankato Farmers Market opens the first Saturday in May, see here for more details. We do our best to be at the market each time it is open, but if the weather is bad, or we have something important going on, we may not be there.

The nice weather this past week has allowed us to put plants in the ground! We have radishes and peas in a hightunnel, lettuces, kohlrabi, kale, chard, and more planted in a couple other hightunnels, and I was even able to seed plant a few rows in the field today. 🙂  Yay for Spring!

Two more important dates to add to your calendars.

Saturday, March 27, we are having a photoshoot opportunity here at our farm. Our baby animals and a professional photographer make for some super cute pictures of your kiddos. Appointments are required for this event. Set up Your Appointment

Tuesday, April 6, is the next delivery day. We have hamburger, various packages of beef (e.g. steaks, roasts, shanks, etc), various packages of pork (e.g. bacon, pork chops, ham, pork lard, etc), stewing hens, eggs, granola, and more. See our store to place your order.

We have an official date for Farm Party! Sunday, May 16th, from 2pm to 7pm. Hopefully we won’t have to worry about the coronavirus by then, but we’ll wait and see. 🙂  I’m looking forward to it though. We should have lambs, calves, chicks, and possibly piglets and baby bunnies. Along with cows you can hand feed, and farm tours typically given by me, (Farmer Jean) my husband (Farmer Dean), and the older of my two daughters (Farmer Abby). Most farm tours involve seeing some of the hightunnels, our greenhouse, bunny tunnel, chickens, sheep, cows, our field for plants, and sometimes we’ll see the barn cats running around the farm.  For anyone who wants to see our farm, but can’t make it, I’m going to try to do a virtual tour on Facebook on May 16th.

We’re staying busy around here. School, planting, caring for animals, prepping for the chaos of Spring and Summer, and remodeling a rental house is plenty to keep us on our toes. Our lamb count is close to a hundred, we’ve had a few calves, and Daisy’s puppies are getting cuter by the day. 🙂  Three of the lambs are currently being bottle fed, along with one calf. Facebook has some more pictures if you’re interested.

Lots of baby animals around here! Last I checked, we have around fifty lambs, seven puppies, and a few calves. We’re about halfway done with lambing season.

We’ve made some updates to the website. As you can probably tell, the links in the header are different, and some pages are in different drop down menus. I hope it isn’t too confusing to get the hang of. 🙂

Lambing season has started. I even got a video of one of our ewes giving birth. Check it out on Facebook. It’s starting to feel like spring again.

Happy New Year! Our farm looks a lot different in the winter than it does in the summer, so I thought I’d share some pictures.

Blessings on your year! 🙂
