Fall Produce & Classes: Woodside Farms at Chickahominy Falls
The fall season is in full swing, which means preparing the fields for winter and the soil for spring plantings. We are currently planting about 4800 cloves of garlic that will be ready next summer! Another exciting announcement is ...........
Woodside Farms gained fifty-six new residents this week! Welcome the ladies (chickens) of Pinwheel Farm! They're all set up behind the orchard with their coop, two friendly scarecrows, and electric fence (it is hot so please don't touch!). Last month, we lost all four of our farm chickens in one night to what we think was a weasel, so Farmer Andy is taking all of the precautions to keep his ladies safe. These are the hens that have been providing the eggs for our Farm Stand each week. They'll be moving around the field, rotating to a new section each week to fertilize what will, in the future, be rows of vegetables.
The Farm Stand is open to the public! Here is what is growing now and available for sale.
