Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

The March storm was not what we expected, usually it’s Snow. Well we survived the hail, rain, and the storm wind gust. However the 36 hours of sustained wind gusting over 55 mph did damage the high tunnels. Parts are coming this week Friday. We should have them repaired by end of next week.

Good news we have fired up the wood boiler and Green house #1 is up and running.
