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 Mar 1, 2020

We have not been running an active market for February, but now time is coming to invite you back to the farm for our winter storage vegetables (squashes, potatoes, onions, carrots) winter greens (collards, kales, chards, parsley) and soon, rhubarb and the first salad greens from the greenhouse.
I’d like you to come and meet Nick LaMarsh, who will be taking over the market garden and store from now on. He’s got lots of ideas for what to grow, how to cook it, and even preserve it by lacto-fermentation. He’s raising rabbits and broiler chickens first in the greenhouse and later on pasture. You can post your questions here on the blog, ask himi about Korean Natural Farming for instance.
We’re still keeping the Lynchlineback cows for breeding family milk cows and pastured beef. There are two animals in the freezer now as of Feb 1st. Nice selection of steaks, roasts, organs and ground beef.

Healthy Eating,
Ian, Cami, Nick and Angie
