January Update 1/7/19

Happy New Year! 

With the New Year we've made some seasonal changes and adjusted our hours.  

Our Farm Market: During these shorter, colder days in the beginning of the year most of the crops grow very slowly. Due to this, we have closed the market for the month of January and most of February. We will RE-OPEN as the days get longer and warmer and many of the plants reach a growth stage that allows us to harvest. 

The ICI: Starting this week (Jan. 10th) we will be back at The International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach at Market Common! This market is on Thursdays from 1:00 - 6:00. We have harvested some Shiitake Mushrooms that showed up during this recent mild weather we've had. The Micro-greens in the greenhouse are ready to harvest, as well as some of the cool season Turnips, Mustard, and Tender Greens

In the Field: We have baby beets, baby radishes, little spinach plants, and tiny turnips growing in some covered beds in the field. The cover protects them and allows them to grow a little more quickly than otherwise this time of year. We also have lettuce plants and onions in the field that we're looking forward to harvesting once they grow big enough. 

In the Greenhouse: In addition to the Micro-greens we've been growing in the greenhouse, there are more beets, kale, chard, and onions growing in trays until they are big enough to go out to the field.

Spring is Coming! 

We're excited about the changing season as we plant more lettuce, seed trays with warmer season crops, transplant tiny tomato plants into larger trays and protect the earliest strawberry blossoms from frost. 

We've harvesting a rainbow of crops from bright red radishes and dark green spinach to carrots and colorful chard. 

I've already seen a few red strawberries and can't wait for Spring to arrive with buckets of juicy berries!

We have several Market Locations, each open on different days, with different hours. See the bottom of our Home Page for the details on each.
