Around The Farm
What’s Happening on the Farm this Week?

Pictured above is sweet corn that is starting to tassel in the Gardens! We are so excited about this and can’t wait to share this delicious sweet corn. As the rhyme goes, “Knee high by Fourth of July”, you can see we are way ahead of that. We hope to harvest more broccoli and sun gold tomatoes this week, along with cucumbers and peas.

We have also redesigned our microgreen labels! This has been a work in progress but we finally came up with a fun, creative design. These labels are on all of our future harvests of microgreens. We hope you like them!

Product Highlight

We have two product highlights this week. The first one is coffee by Santa Martha. The coffee beans are bought from the Mt. Meru Project of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and then roasted locally in Randolph, Minnesota. Santa Martha‘s coffee is always carbon negative, planting one tree for every fourth bag of beans roasted. If you are conscious about sustainable growing, harvesting, and shipping, switch to Santa Martha. Different sizes, flavors, roast types, and decaf options are all located in the Farm Store.

The second product highlight this week is coffee by Trail Creek Coffee Roasters. They are located out of Kasson, Minnesota and carefully source their coffee from all over the world. Trail Creek Coffee Roasters roast their coffee beans in small batches, meaning that when you order from them, you order is most likely being roasted at that exact time.

The Farm Store stocks 12 oz bags of different flavors, roasts, decaf options, and whole beans or ground.
