🥝Meet a Farmer Monday🥝 JB returns to NMF for his third year, after a winter spent farming and traveling. After a dose of Florida sun to kick off the month of March, JB hopped on a plane for Salzburg, Austria where he spent three weeks volunteering on an organic dairy operation. He's excited to be back this year serving as the assistant field manager and Saturday market manager. When not farming, you can probably find JB hanging with his dog, Charles, experimenting in the kitchen, or firing up the pizza oven he built this past spring.
Flowers, cherries, summer squash and all the other lovely things in the world are here at Sheridan School Market. Swing by on this sunny Saturday for your weekly dose of farmers market festivities ☀️
We'll take fresh over fast any day. Don't @ us ✌🏼
From our fields to your table 💚 come pick up this gorgeous zucchini today at the Sheridan School Market, 3:00-7:00 and be sure to wave hi to Jen, our new Tuesday market manager!
🌶 Meet a Farmer Monday 🌶 A recent graduate from Virginia Tech, Casey arrived at NMF in May with a degree in horticulture, and experience working on a number of small farms around the country from Common Goods City in Washington DC, all the way to Spring Creek Farm in Palmer, Alaska. She's excited to be working on a larger scale operation this season, and will be managing rhubarb, arugula, fennel, garlic, overhead irrigation, deer fences, as well as assisting our head manager with upholding GAP standard protocols. When not farming, you can probably find Casey baking up some tasty treats in the kitchen, reading, or hanging out with her cat, Buster.
Cute as buttons, and tasty too! We have beautiful heads of lettuce today at the Sheridan School Market, ready for all your salad, smoothie, and wrap needs 🥗
Balloons are the new scarecrows 🎈 but actually. This 36 silver helium balloon does an excellent job at keeping the crows off our corn, which should be ~sky~ high by Fourth of July 💥
