Horn Farm Happenings – March 22

You know about the Horn Farm Vegetable CSA, but did you know you can also get meat, eggs, mushrooms, and flowers delivered to the Horn Farm beginning this spring? This season we are a pick up location for three other local farms: Betsy’s Flowers at the Farm, Hippy Homestead, and Rising Locust Farm. Contact these farms directly for more information!

Betsy’s Flowers at the Farm sells both freshly cut flower bouquets and buckets of flowers. Contact Betsy for more information!

We’re about to graduate our first cohort of Woodland Stewards. woodland-stewards 18-19Their hard work, enthusiasm, love for the land, and willingness to give their best have been truly inspirational and the reason for the success of the program. We have them to thank for clearing acres of degraded woodlands, planting over 1000 trees, building three ponds, and for showing how a few dedicated people can accomplish so much good! Thank you to Andrew, Joey, Kelsey, and Heather and to their amazing teacher Wilson!
