Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

Last week Friday Angela Orshinsky Department of  Plant Pathology visited our farm and took samples to identify plant diseases that we have, will take about a week to identify and get back to us. She will help us with  selecting plants that have resistance to the diseases that she can  ID along with Providing Organic Products recommendations that should work to Prevent the Disease from spreading.
