Valentines Day is Coming!

As we prepare for this year’s Valentine’s Day Celebration, we build our prep lists which will guide us through the chaos. A crazy flurry of cooking and chopping and cleaning and discussing ends at 6:30 p.m. as the first guests show up at the Farmstand. Hopefully all of our preparations lead to a flawless romantic dinner. Thanks to all who plan to attend our celebration.

Happy Holidays and Welcome to 2013

White Peacock Kale

Here’s a bright Peacock Kale for the solstice! Today marks the official beginning of winter, but we’ve already had our first snow on Tuesday, and the river made a brief foray into the parking lot yesterday. There are plenty of gray, rainy days ahead, but we know we’re beginning the journey back toward more sunlight.

We’ll be at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds Farmers Market tomorrow with a lot of late-season veggies! Then we’ll take a holiday break on December 29. The Portland Winter Market begins January 5 at Shemanski Park; the Hillsdale Market resumes January 6; and the Corvallis Indoor Winter Market begins January 12 at the fairgrounds.
