Getting Excited About 2022 Farming

The earliest seedling plant starts get sown in the greenhouse this month.

By the end of next month we expect to be breaking ground in the fields.

We know there’s many of you who have enjoyed the Big Branch Valley Farm CSA (community supported agriculture) over the years. We also know there’s quite a few others who have inquired about joining for the first time in 2022.

When we are operating your farm for the first season right now, we’re sorry, we’re afraid we just can’t allow you to make that great a commitment to us. We’ll see about doing it in 2023.

In the meantime we will continue to produce your favorite fresh produce selections. The tentative schedule for ala carte produce is Union County Farmer’s Market on Saturdays and the farm stand at the farm on Tuesdays.
