Aw Snaps: Immerfrost Farm

Every week our friends at Real Time Farms feature the top photos of farms, food artisans, and farmers markets shared on their site.

Farmers are a dedicated bunch, but it takes an extra level of perseverance to farm in Michigan's Upper Pennisula. Farmer David Eagleton says they chose the name Immerfrost Farm for good reason, "The weather can surprise you in the U.P. Just because you're past the average frost free date doesn't mean you won't get a hard frost at the end of June, or August for that matter. Growing plenty of cold hearty crops like leeks helps." ("Immerfrost" is German for "always frost.") So what are they planting more of next year? "Okra." Okra? "Yeah okra, weather permitting of course. Who knew they liked that stuff up here?" Click here to see more, and then add a photo of your own - you might be featured here next week!

What's all good? Marybeth Otte's farm, that's what. Her hens are pasture-raised, and their diet is supplemented with organic feed and leftover produce from nearby farms. Marybeth believes her farming techniques are good for her "girls," good for the environment, and good for her customers. Consequently, her Oswego, Illinois farm was named, "It's All Good." Click here to see more, and then add a photo of your own - you might be featured here next week!

Aw Snaps: Great Road Farm

 

Every week our friends at Real Time Farms feature the top photos of farms, food artisans, and farmers markets shared on their site.

Farmer Steven Tomlinson cradles an armfull of freshly dug turnips on his farm in Skillman, New Jersey.  Also an independent artist and designer, Tomlinson describes the photo as, "...trying to cature the human element in food production. It is important for people to know how much work is involved in small scale agriculture. So, when selling a bunch of turnips for $3.50 at the market, that is actually a bargain for fresh local food. Food needs to be valued more evenly."  Click here to see more, and then add a photo of your own - you might be featured here next week!
