The wildflower patch we planted in front of the farm is now full of Black-eyed Susans and the honeybees are buzzing all over them! With thirty-five honeybee hives now on the farm, it takes a lot of flowers to keep the bees fed and making honey. We've planted a lot of clover and wildflower seed in order to keep our bees here at the farm as much as possible--away from farms and lawns that may apply pesticides--as bees will travel up to five miles each day in search of pollen, nectar and water.
As always, we have our hens' fresh brown eggs for sale. Our flock is composed of Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orphingtons and Barred Rocks. These are hens that are not only great egg layers but also have a track record of handling Virginia's cold, blustery, winter weather! We feed our hens only organic scratch/feed and we never give them antibiotics. You'd be hard pressed to find a fresher or healthier egg in any grocery store.
Oh, and one last thing! We have successfully mated our Nigerian Dwarf Goat, Ariel, so this August we will have at least two more bundles of joy out frolicking in the pasture and the goat's new playpen!
NEW SUMMER HOURS:
We will be open sporadic weekends throughout the summer, so give us a call before you come to make sure we are open. Prior to any weekend opening, we will post signs on Carrico Mills Road (front of the farm) indicating the days we will be open that weekend. Farm hours are always 10 AM - 4 PM.
We will be open every Saturday and Sunday in October from 10 AM - 4 PM.
We will open the day after Thanksgiving (November 25th) and remain open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 AM - 4 PM until 4 PM December 23rd.
Plan on spending part of your weekend here playing with our baby goats--bring your kids to meet our kids! New this year: pony rides! We have two ponies just waiting to give your little one a ride! In the fall you can pick your pumpkin from our pumpkin patch, take a walk through our Christmas tree fields and reserve your Christmas tree while the weather is cool and crisp. Afterwords, shop in our farm store and cook a S'more over our fire pit...it's all good!
We can't wait to have you back!
