Giving back with KCAO
We were happy to team up with Kings Community Action Organization to teach children about farmers markets this past week. KCAO put together a mock market where children could come and use fake money to pay for their produce. They had the opportunity to ask growers questions and get free, quality organic food for their families.
We Have a New Tractor!
Last year, we saw the end of the big red tractor that plowed the fields and sculpted the beds. We were not sure what to do and were looking at renting tractors as we needed them. Months of research later, we decided on the BCS 749 with electric start.
BCS tractors are the vegetable farmer's go-to work horse and are used in many small acreage applications. The small size and heavy duty engine make it ideal for bed maintenance and landscaping tasks around the farm. It has a collection of attachments that customize it to whatever job is at hand. The machine is Italian made and should last us for a very long time!
