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 Oct 20 Election week
We havested our squashes this weekend: have a good variety to choose from. Greens as usual: kale, chard, collards; rootcrops: carrots, potatoes, celeriac, beets, onions.
Herbs: thyme, basil, oregano, lovage, spearmint
Meats: beef, pork and stewing hens
Fruit: apples, cherry tomatoes.
I’m putting hay and straw in the barn on wednesday and could really use a few hands. If you can come for a couple hours in the morning or afternoon, I’d really appreciate it. (Barring rain of course)
Cider Day: this sunday we’ll be doing our traditional cider pressing with on farm apples or your own if you wish. Start 2pm, to 5pm. Also making lard and serving hot squash soup.
