Do offer produce year-round? 

We aren't quite there yet but we are working on extending our season further into the winter months. You can check out our Produce calendar for an estimate of when our produce will be available. 

What do farmers do in the winter? 

The short answer is that we get to do everything we didn't have time to do or we know we won't have time to do during the growing season.

Yes, resting and a vacation (or "staycation") is usually in the schedule, but the rest of the time is taken up by lots of planning. A well thought out plan is essential to ensure a good harvest, especially as we increase complexity by increasing crop variety. I get to work on crop plans, field plans, seed orders, supply orders, finances, budget plans, grant applications, hiring plans and I usually take some professional development courses. There are also usually some degree of upgrades or repairs to do on our machinery or buildings each winter. Before I know it, March is around the corner and we start sowing the first crops in the plant nursery. I enjoy the seasonality of my work and am grateful I get to do what I love.
