Hi Friends & Farm-ily,

We hope everyone has made the smooth transition into September – although it still feels like summer in the air!  We hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend as we know school is starting back up for the little ones and the change of season will be upon us in the coming month… it’s definitely a time of transition.  


September is one of our favorite months here on the farm.  The days are still holding on to the light but the nights feel cool enough for a light sweater.  Those pesky flies lessen and the cows are much happier for it.  The summer crops give their heaviest bounties in preparation for the gray days ahead.  The kitchen slowly becomes the place to be again..with thoughts of roasted veggies and soups lingering in the distance. Autumn is our favorite (especially mine, having grown up in New England) what with the leaves on the trees all changing color, the squashes and pumpkins ripening, the root veggies & kale plants becoming sweeter, things slowing down just a little, with cooler mornings and warmer days and on and on and on…

Our not-so-little Miss Maribelle turned 1 on the 1st and we expect a new baby calf sometime in the next week or two.  Truffle (uffagus) is due with piglets on the 28th.  If all goes to plan it’s about to get pretty rowdy up in these parts.  Stay tuned for updates on all our sweet gals.


Movie Night on the Farm.  We’re happy to announce (thanks to some awesome members) that this Friday (September 6th) we will be showing The Princess Bride.  A classic fairy tale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and yes, some kissing (as read by a kindly grandfather).  Movie starts around 8:15pm but feel free to come a half hour early to enjoy our beautiful new farm along with the sunsets.  Make sure to bring a few layers with you for when the sun goes down, as well as some snacks and a blanket and/or chairs.  We’ll be at the new farm 7705 SW River Rd. Hillsboro.   Let us know if you’ll be joining us so we know how many people to expect!



Picnic ‘n’ Potluck.  On Saturday, September 21st from 11 – 2pm we invite our members to come visit with us at the new farm and to celebrate the start of the autumnal equinox.  This will be “picnic” style potluck – members should bring either a picnic blanket or chairs, a potluck dish and their own set of forks, knives and plates as it will make clean up easier for everyone.  It will be a great opportunity to visit the new farm before we make the big transition over this Fall & early Winter. 


Our Fall CSA.  We’re almost a month away from the start of our Fall CSA and have a handful of shares available!  Check out our Fall CSA page here.  Your farmers will be available during the CSA pick ups if you have any questions.  

Just a reminder about TOMATOES!  The time is now!  We’re offering them at a steal of a price, in bulk for canning purposes.  If anyone is interested in purchasing 10, 20, 40, 60 + lbs of tomatoes please let us know.  They make great sauce, soup, sundried tomatoes, ketchup, jam and more for filling up your pantry or giving as Christmas gifts!  We just finished up our last quart from last season with homemade pizza… mm mm mm!

We look forward to seeing you all this week.  Enjoy the start of September and we’ll see you all soon!

with regards,

your farmers
