We love the beginning of a new year. Everything is fresh and new. Especially all the seed catalogs that fill our mailbox. The year is wide open. We can grow anything. We can peruse all the seeds and decide what we want to take our chances on this year. It is a time full of potential, and we love it. Seed catalogs are just whole books full of potential and they make us happy. We aren't worried about the amount of rain we are or aren't getting. We aren't worried about how to keep those bugs off of our precious plants. We aren't trying to find extra time in the day to take care of all those now grown seeds that we bought with big ideas. No, we are just dreaming and planning. We like all the seasons of a farmer's life, but there is something about seed ordering time that carries an excitement all it's own.
And we are ordering those seeds to provide for you - our CSA customer! We are now accepting applications for 2015 CSAs. We have limited space and the registration and deposit deadline is March 1. You can find all the information and an application on the CSA page here on our website. We would love to be YOUR farmer this year. Thanks for connecting with us!

We are pretty horrible at this website stuff - when there is a garden to tend, it is hard to sit down at a computer! As afar as the garden goes, this season has been pretty good. We have a family of great CSA customers and have been able to provide them with bountiful shares each week.
New on the farm this summer are our bee hives. We have two hives and hope to be producing enough honey to add to CSAs and sell next year. The trick will be keeping them alive this winter! Although we are on a CSA break, we have been busy planting new fall crops. making jelly, preserving vegetables, and playing with cows. Life never slows down here!
I hope to be blogging here a little bit more - it is a fun way to communicate. We will share some of our favorite recipes and pictures of what is happeneing here on the farm!
Hope all is well!

We are upgrading the website and getting ready for the 2013 season. New Dawn Farm is a busy place these days with all the changes! We are excited to be able to use the website more efficiently and look forward to our new little blog - though we may not post as often as we'd like. Stay tuned to see what the garden and the website have in store!
