  The weather so often determines whether, when and how. Fortunately, it is becoming more like  growing conditions. Some of the early crops are starting to respond to warmer soils and longer sunshine.

 What does it mean? Well, greens, radishes, turnips, collards , Kale, onions are coming in increasing measure. Garden peas are enjoying this weather too. Potatoes should be breaking through the ground soon. New potatoes may be ready early June. We planted more this year. The organic potato crop is doubled last years planting and has some exciting new varieties. Red Gold should be back this year. It is one of the best and unique potatoes around.

 Strawberries? Yes they are taking to the weather and longer sunshine too. The winter has them pushed back but I think we will be picking about the 14 with PYO beginning about 18. We still can't tell with accuracy, but things are happening in the field.

  Now, don't get confused. We will have Organic strawberries in the market starting Tuesday. I suggest you call and let us hold you some since supplies may be slow to start with. These strawberries were covered during the harsh parts of the winter and are on a more normal schedule. We also have organic lettuce and onions, parsley, some basil. If you want organic I suggest you call and ask to have it held for you.

In general the crops are looking good. There are some good things to look forward to. I haven't mentioned the Bakery or Garden Center but there is much happening there as well. Indigo Strawberries

   It continues to be a rather cold and wet spring. But we have much planted and hope the fields will dry off soon to do more direct sowing. The ground has been too cold for good germination. After this weeks cold spell we hope to be able to set out many transplants we have waiting for the warmer conditions. We are harvesting some greens and eagerly look forward to more crops coming in.

 If you are a teacher or have kids in school you may be interested in our Spring farm tour. It will feature strawberries and more. See Spring farm tour information under the heading Spring Tours.

Check out the items in the garden center and bakery.

Greetings! It has been a long hard winter and still lingers but changes are coming. The cold and overcast days have delayed the normal growth I had anticipated. But we have been actively trying to keep pace in order to be productive as soon as possible. Lots of good stuff growing in trays and even a few items direct seeded but until the soil warms we will be slow to do much planting.

 Good news! we are open. The bakery got off to a good start with not only the set menu of pies and desserts but threw in some new items. Raspberry squares and Magic cookies are now available.

  The Produce market has some greens and cool season items. More farm products will be coming as the weather improves.

  The Garden Center has plants and seeds as well as gardening supplies.

 We look forward to seeing you soon!

  We all here at Indigo farms wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to serving you in the new Year. The market will close this Saturday ( the 21) and we will be open in mid January to sell items still being grown on the farm. We will post times later. Most likely the market will be open for about 4 hrs two days a week. This will be determined later. However if you want greens,  collards, trunips and/or other farm goods please call . We will be glad to help if we can. Meanwhile we will be sharping our "HOE, HOE, HOES".

 The Market will be closed around 1 PM Wednesday but we will be OPEN MONDAY Dec 2.  We should have lots of really good apple cider, fresh veggies and some salanova lettuce! Have a great Thanksgiving!

 Good news. You still have time to place orders for baked goods. Even better news you can get fresh string beans and half runners at the market. Yes, we did save some of the beans from the cold. So fresh really means fresh. How does fresh broccoli sound. You probably are like me. You'd rather taste it than hear it. Speaking of taste, there is kale, kholrabi, collards, cabbage, radish and mustard ( slick, curly and tendergreens ). Plus something many have been waiting for, fresh apple cider ( we should be pressing Friday). So besides all the usual items like sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes, etc. you have more reasons to be thankful. Have a good Thanksgiving!
