Local, homegrown, small farm awesomeness
Silver Forge Farm will be operating as a CSA in 2014. Each share will include pasture raised eggs, organic vegetables and fruit as well as farm sourced items such as wool products from our Shetland sheep. We are sold out for shares of the 2014 season but we will be taking names for a 2015 waiting list.

Part-time farm help wanted:
Silver Forge Farm is looking for part time help, ideally on Saturdays. We welcome agriculture and animal science students looking to gain experience on a small working farm. Experience with vegetable production and livestock helpful, but not necessary as long as you are reliable and willing to learn. Farm chores vary, but include seeding, plowing, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, egg collection, feeding and caring for poultry and sheep, as well as assembling weekly CSA shares. We're looking for someone 4-8 hours a week and offering $10 an hour. Message us if you are interested, and please pass on the info to anyone you know who may be interested!

My brother got a great shot of the duck flock today - you can see our Cayuga drake quacking to the right. His ladies are two Blue Swedish (the gray girls), two Khaki Campbells, two young Cayuga girls (solid black), an older Cayuga hen (black with white spots), and a Black Swedish (black with a white chest)

April showers may bring May flowers, but they aren't helpful in getting the market gardens plowed. We are spending time raising seedlings and prepping for the hens' arrival on Saturday in the meantime. Here's hoping for some much needed sunshine!

A hourglass pieced design is bracketed by other fabrics in the collection, including a pretty floral, a great stripe, and a chocolate colored kona cotton. Quilt is pieced by machine and heavily stipple quilted in a coordinating chocolate colored thread. The binding is in the same chocolate kona cotton. Fabric, batting, and thread are all 100% cotton. Overall measurements are 32" by 43". Machine wash on the gentle cycle as needed, and let air dry.

Cool article about the state of the modern CSA in America. Interesting history about how they started in Japan and other products available through a CSA model (Bourbon was very interested in the farm to bowl dog food CSA). Did you know we are the only CSA in Monmouth County?
