Every year we need helping hands to get our shiitake inoculation done. Come out and volunteer on the farm and get your hands dirty! Everyone will learn about shiitake inoculation, see the farm, get fed lunch, and take home an inoculated log of their own at the end of the day. This is a work party involving power tools and hot wax! For their safety, no young kids allowed, and please leave your pets at home. Wear closed toed shoes and work clothes. Registration is required, so we know how many to expect and feed. If you woul...

It has been public knowledge for quite some time that the Market Square shopping center on  Timberlane Rd. was sold to developers. Although they have yet to decide exactly what they will do with the property, it is safe to assume the Farmers Market will be kicked out. The Tallahassee Farmers Market at Market Square is the oldest in Tallahassee and one of the oldest in the state. The area surrounding Market Square has been deemed the "Market District" thanks in part to the Farmers Market's longtime presence there. It is an...

We are excited to announce that as of Tuesday February 14, 2017, Damfino's Cafe & Market is officially open for business! The project was inspired by Quincy's lack of healthy food options and the growing abundance of locally grown food in the surrounding area. Farmer Katie's parents, Fred and Lucy Harris had dreamed of opening such a shop for years, but the timing wasn't quite right until a year ago. Before they got very far they met Max Gross and Cassandra Rayne, two enthusiastic food entrepreneurs who both graduated from...

In an age when we can buy whatever we want at the click of the mouse, or in a single trip to one big box store, why is there any interest in the CSA model at all? As growers we have a unique perspective and one thing is certain, interest is growing.

CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a subscription type model where customers prepay for a share of the harvest for a set period of time. Because our season here is so long we do three month CSA seasons and skip summer all together. In most CSA models (although they vary qu...

Every late spring we harvest our elephant garlic with the help of folks from the community. In the past we waited until June, but this year decided May was the time to get the job done. It was the right decision! As with all storage alliums (onions & garlic) dry weather leading up to harvest is ideal. This helps jump start the curing process because there is less water in the outer leaves to start with. This year we had a week of rain leading up to the harvest! What can you do? We managed to get it all out of the ground, c...
