Grumpy Goat: Weblog Entry
So we are preparing to take some goats to their new owner/goat show in Iowa this weekend! Wooohooo. And though I’d like to say our goats are in pristine tip top shape, I think they have figured out our plan and continue to get as dirty and hay covered as possible. Relatively speaking we will be the ones in the “working gear” while everyone else are in their “evening gowns”.
That being said we will not have veggie/bread pick ups available on Friday or Saturday. We will be open next Tuesday as usual. Feel free to stop out and get eggs anytime as we still have many many dozens!
We should have our first tomatoes available this week – I’ve listed them as mixed baskets until they are in full swing and may include: Blush, granadero, speckled roman, and cherry bombs. And we will have all three of our eggplant varieties. Two (traviata and ping tung) are listed already and Rosa Bianca will be available for in store pick up depending upon how many ripen in time!
We’ll be back and open our regular hours the following week. Thanks!
Heritage Farm : Farm Truck update.........

Springdale, AR: Canning Season
