I have exciting news…we are on for strawberries this year. We weathered through last years blow from Hurricane Mathew and are thankful for the field we have growing for 2018. The plants are well established in their beds and are looking fabulous. I am scheduling field trips NOW for schools, scouts, church groups, etc. This years trip will also include a video presentation of planting to picking.
Since we didn’t have strawberries last year, many of you may have missed our addition to the farm – July 2016 ground was broken for the first Solar Farm in Virginia. It went online in December 2016.
I took pictures throughout the construction process-from the last field of cotton in 2015 to completion with an overhead shot of the farm. I compiled them into a video presentation to share with school age students and would love to show it to your class. Please contact me directly for more details.
