Field Notes

You can feel autumn in the air now. The leaves are beginning to change color and fall. At Serious Farms, we’re also changing gears. This will be our last Selinsgrove Farmer’s Market for the season. We’re looking forward to spending more time searching for a new farm to call our home and getting details together for next year’s Serious CSA. We visited a few potential farms this week, and we’ve begun talking to banks about farm financing. We also visited Marcia and Giles at Mystic Springs Farm, and they helped us to bend some pipes that we’ll use to extend the season by building low tunnels. Hopefully they will look something like this:

Low tunnels help extend the season by keeping crops warm.

As if we’re not busy enough, we’re getting married in two weeks! We’re both thrilled and looking forward to celebrating with family and friends.

So come celebrate all of the good news with us at the Harvest Festival on Saturday! Details can be found here. We’re looking forward to live music, a scavenger hunt for the kids, and an apple pie baking competition.

Our Recipe of the Week is Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes. This recipe got rave reviews on our dinner table this week. It’s a great harvest dish, and easy to make.

See you on Saturday from 9am-1pm at the Selinsgrove Farmer’s Market. Questions? Comments? Please email
