Swing of Summer!

Wow, it has been a very long time since we posted anything on here... Sorry! We have Spring and Summer have been so incredibly busy, that we've hardly had a minute to sit back and reflect on it all. We just wanted to let you know that we are alive, very well and excited to now be at the pinnacle of harvest, reaping the abundance of our toils and ready to share with you all. We have been busy processing herbs, jams, jellies and other preserves for our pantry and yours. And as always, we use as many ingredients grown here on our farm as possible. The first round of honey harvest is wrapped up and there are many, many jars and pails of fresh, raw honey available for sale. The bees definitely worked their magic this season and provided us with a big harvest of that liquid gold. So thankful for that. The cows are all calved out for the most part, short of 2 of our lowline angus who were bred way later, so we are patiently awaiting their arrival. The calves are all very healthy, especially because the pastures have never looked lusher than this year with all the rain we've had. That made haying more than a bit challenging, but we finally (as of last week) managed to put up all the hay we need for winter.

Anyways, it is another day of harvest, so I better get back out there. We'll try to do a better job of keeping you all in the loop as to what's shakin' out here at Fresh Roots Farm. Oh ya, and if anyone out there is interested in coming out for a visit (working or otherwise), please get in touch with us. We love hosting.

All the best!
