More Potato News!

We just packed up boxes of our colorful organic potatoes and delivered them to the Crittenden Tap Room where they'll be on the new Bar Food Menu this weekend. It's wonderful to be part of a growing local food movement. Providing delicious produce to local restaurants has been a goal of our farm operation from the beginning!

What will the 2014 growing season hold? The Farmers' Market group has been meeting to plan for the weekly market in downtown Coudersport. (Friday afternoons from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. beginning May 23 and continuing weekly through October.)
In addition, there's been an interest from Charles Cole Memorial Hospital to offer a farmers' market there. Plans call for twice-monthly visits by our group beginning in late June. Details will be announced.
What do you want from our growers? It's not too late to let us know as we continue planning for the season.

Potato Diversity

I was chopping potatoes this morning to add to the soup pot and grabbed the camera to capture their colorful beauty. This is what you'll find in the bags of spuds that we're selling at Costa's ShurSave Food Center in Coudersport and at Schoolhouse Natural Foods (near Eldred).

Today is the day I am putting my first seeds in their cells - first plantings of peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli so stay tuned for updates.
