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 Berries and More this week
We’ve got a good crop of raspberries, first round of picking last week, still coming ripe as I expect for another week. Currant abundant for making syrup and dessert toppings; great source of anti-oxidants.
Come any day, helps to call ahead if its your first time so Cami or I can show you the area.
Also new crop of veggies: carrots, chicory, cukes, green onions, NZ spinach, lovage, collards, kale, chard, rhubarb.
Meats: beef by the cut or 20lb mixed lot for $187, Pork good selection but the cut or side.
Eggs; buy 2 get three dozen.
