Harvest Begins

Like clockwork, fall delivers foggy mornings, shorter days, and chilly nights. It also inspires a keen awareness among our team that every step counts as time marches us swiftly toward harvest. In the weeks leading up to what we affectionately refer to as our “busy season” — as if there were such a thing as down time on a farm — we find ourselves preparing all of our work spaces including our new barn at Black Jack Acres, lining up our ever-growing crew, brushing up on our safety trainings and protocols, and checking in our crops’ root development on the regular.
