Settling in our NEW LOCATION!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
We love our new, close-in location!
It's a cozy spot with projects awaiting attention, livestock growing & grazing, greenhouses needing installation, and remodeling patiently awaiting. First project is overall design for our land with a little clearing required, so we added a few four-legged tillers... see below for more info!

Food Cave!

You've heard of Man Caves?  Here's my Food Cave!  And it's almost complete!  Welcome 2014 growing season!  A little sunshine please?  Watch for postings here and on Craigslist over the 2014 season for surplus produce available.  I'm so delighted to get my hands back to growing food!

Quote for the day

"The federal government has sponsored research that has produced a tomato that is perfect in every respect, except that you can't eat it.  We should make every effort to make sure this disease, often referred to as 'progress' doesn't spread."  -Andy Rooney

Ready for install

Amazing how little space a high tunnel greenhouse takes up when dismantled!  I'm looking forward to our first crop of 2014 cared for inside this old friend.

Pork available


Would you like quality heritage pork? We have a 2014 spring harvest scheduled. Our pork is raised on all GMO FREE feed, no corn, no soy, pasture, barley/peas, and organic alfalfa.

Reserve a whole or half soon so you don't miss out!

Contact us for more juicy details.


Fall is the season of change, and change for our farm as well. We have sold our property and are on the hunt for a new location!

An organic certification is specific to individual property. In our case, the buyer was not interested in keeping the property certified. Unfortunately our certificate #2504 will vanish! We will have to go through the transitional process to certify our new land once purchased. Check back for updates!

Support your local farms. Please buy local!

Phytonutrients. Get yours in 2012

I admire the folks at http://grist.org/food/. Great information and humor to boot. Here's a quote from a recent article:

The unique biochemical makeup of plant-based foods, however, cannot be replicated in a pill. Not only are there thousands of phytonutrients, but research has shown they need to operate within their original food matrix to be efficient (aka, isolate them and they get separation anxiety and can’t function right). By Andy Bellatti

Select nutrient dense veggies have priority space at Creative Outlet Farm in 2012. Find our produce at http://www.salmoncreekfarmersmarket.com/, http://neighborsmarkets.com/the_story/, and of course, at the farm!

Winter

Winter months may seem quiet around a farm, but plenty is happening. It's decision time. What was learned from the prior season always plays into the choices for the coming season. Catalogues arrive with enticing pictures and mouth watering descriptions. What to choose?

It may be surprising to learn that some seeds are already germinating, protected in a greenhouse from winter's cold. Soon they will become the first transplants of the year.

Spring. It's coming.
