The Weblog

This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.

You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.

Old 99 Farm, week of July 30 2017

As of July 30th , we can offer the following crops: new harvest chard and kale, purple potatoes, black currants, aronia berries, tomatoes, cucumbers, zuchinni, sorrel, New Zealand spinach, rhubarb, lovage, sweet cicely, scapes, arugula, chives and peppers.

I’m taking orders for beef quarters and halves for pickup in November, $100 deposit secures your order, roughly 100lb of meat.

Also I will take orders for roasting chickens, minimum 5 birds, deposit $25.

So far Cami and I have not decided on getting more pigs for late fall; it would help to hear from any of you that enjoyed your pork from O’99 last year, that you intend to repeat.

Work day this saturday with daughter Kelly’s friends. We’ll load some hay in the barn, cut some dead ash trees for firewood and biochar and have a bbq. Interested? give me a ring.

Here are several important news items related to climate change and species extinction.
