We are filling the fields with onions, peas, broccoli, kale, cabbage, carrots, salad mix, peppers, eggplant, zucchini, and summer squash. Our first meal from the fields will be here before we know it!
It feels like winter outside but in the greenhouse we are getting ready for summer; re-potting peppers and eggplant today. The cabbage and kale can't wait for warmer weather, they are ready to go in the field
An early spring on the farm. We are plowing the fields for the early crops, the first seedlings are popping up the greenhouse, we are doing the finishing touches on the cropping plan & crop rotation, the garlic is peaking through the straw mulch, and piglets are running around the barn. The 2016 season has begun!

Some of our sheep pastures are far from our barns along the creek. We often hear coyotes at night so we need a livestock guardian animal to protect the sheep from predators. We tried using livestock guardian dogs but with so many visitors to the farm, the guardian dogs barked too much. So, we were lucky enough to have Liz Neumark, from Great Performances Catering company who owns Katchkie Farm across the road from Roxbury, give us a llama. We picked up the llama yesterday, her name is Cassiopeia. In this photo the young steers and heifers are trying to figure out what kind creature she is.
