Food for Thought...
“…the care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope.”
(The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry)

First signs of Spring!
The month of March is another of those most intensive for farmers as we see the last of the winter products and transition into the first of the spring crops. Stock up on the last of the apples and sweet potatoes and frozen whole chickens as once these are gone we will not see them again until fall.
Forrest Green Farm will have extra winter greens available for only a few more weeks. It is that time of year when we transition from growing nutrient dense greens in the ground of our greenhouses to potted plant seeding.
By mid March we plan to start offering plants for sale.
