So we have 4 new high tunnels that are ready to have the plastic put on them. And we have two other tunnels already up and running on our farm. All of these high tunnels can get confusing when trying to communicate and differentiate among them all. So we decided they need names. We have 6 tunnels which need their own names. So we thought maybe there was somebody in the CSA with a creative mind to come up with some great names. Any suggestions?

If you would like to come help, please, please, please RSVP and give us an idea on what time you plan to arrive. Thanks 

Hooray, we finally had drainage installed in our fields a couple weeks ago and while it created quite a mess we are hopefully it will help our vegetables grow more happily.

Event tonight:
Local Food Fest at the Union Hall in Corning from 5:00-8:00. We will be selling our usual supply of vegetables and promoting the CSA. Come on by and join the summer CSA tonight.Or just pick up your CSA share. I believe there is an admission fee but it is all for a good cause - Cornell Cooperative Extension's promotion of local agriculture.
Also: Saturday we will be at the Painted Post Farmers' Market at Union Hall on Steuben St. from 11:00-3:00. Yes, I know its supposed to be cold, but it is winter after all even though it hasn't felt like it before now.

Two dairy goat does. One is approximately 3 years old and is purebred Saanen. She is somewhat skittish but should be a good milker. The other is a 5-6 month old doeling with Saanen mother and Oberhasli father. Both good dairy lines. Her mother regularly gives us 3/4 gallon/day of milk.
Can be sold bred if preferred. Dairy goats make a great hobby and are great at grazing brushy areas. $250
