A Tour of the Farm

Welcome to a tour of our farm.  We had so many people who came to pick black raspberries that wanted to look at the farm, so we thought we'd share a little tour with all of you.  Double A Family Farms is located at the end of the road the Albert house is on. 

Here is the barn.  It is on the left side of the road.

We have a cooler up and running behind the barn. 

Leaving the barn, across the paved road starts a dirt road that runs alongside the black raspberries.

At the end of the black raspberries, the road keeps going, and on the left is our produce.

To the right, on the same side as the black raspberries is our corn.

More produce on the left...

And our produce ends with the tomatoes.  So produce on the left, corn on the right....and the corn runs the whole length that the produce field does (which means lots of corn!)

Now, if you were back at the start of our tour where the berries were, to the left of that road is a large field of wildflowers, and then you can see our rows of potatoes.  The large field that looks like nothing is growing in it is pumpkins, squash, and canteloupe.  (We just planted it last week and it is growing.)

So this is somewhat the layout of our farm.  If you are still unclear, come and visit!  We's be happy to take you on a tour.  (Bring gloves.  You may be asked to weed.)

Summer Salad

Ooooh, summer salads are so good!  Here is an easy one:  Start with lettuce or lettuce mix (especially good from Double A Family Farms--the mix has lettuce, spinach and chard).  Add some strawberries, black raspberries and feta cheese.  Drizzle with a purchased raspberry vinaigrette dressing and enjoy! It tastes so light and fresh.  To make this a main dish, you could add almonds and grilled chicken. 
Yea summer!
