Transitioning to Fall

 

We are starting to transition to Fall Planting mode and so far the weather has been great. Temperatures have been much lower and that allows the fall plants to grow in nicely.

It is hard to believe that we are thinking about fall, but with schools back in we know that Fall is fast approaching. There is a lot of work to be done at The Farm, and we are truly grateful for all of the people in the community who have helped out along the way.

Thankfully, things are starting to come back to life at The Farm; however, the affects of the Summer drought and heat will remain for at least the next few weeks. We are still grateful for the recent rains that have brought much needed relief to our plants.

 

Our Amazing Community

 

Our community has continued to amaze us, and we are truly grateful. We know as school, soccer, football, and everything else begins, time becomes precious. We are still in need of people to lend a hand to make sure we can finish our year strong. So, if you’re able to spread the word about opportunities to serve at The Farm, we would be very grateful.

We loved having students from the youth ministry and Central United Methodist Church in Rogers.
They learned how to harvest green beans and field peas. They collected four lugs of beans that will go to local hunger relief efforts!

We are also thankful for Fayetteville’s Youth Wrestling Team who helped plant fall veggies.

Production Update

For the fall season to we have planted  broccoli plants, cabbage plants as well as various salad mixes with much more to come!

We have a lot more plants to put in the ground and will continue planting over the next few weeks. We’ll keep you updated, but so far all is on track.

The Farm is still producing limited crops including okra, peppers, tomatoes, and  peas. This is due to the drought and heat this summer. We appreciate your grace and understanding during this time.

Our season to date harvest is exactly 10,025 pounds with 57% (or 5,946 pounds) of the total harvest being given to local hunger relief in Northwest Arkansas!
