This week on our #TentTalk Farmers’ Market Podcast, we learned a lot from our guest, community activist and farmer Karen Washington of Rise & Root Farm • @riseandrootfarm • She has spent decades promoting urban farming as a way for all New Yorkers to access fresh, locally grown food. Karen shares how community activism got her interested in farming, how Rise & Root found their product niche for the farmers’ market, and her hopes for the next generation of farmers. Listen all the way to the end for Karen's insightful advice on getting young people interested in agriculture! Tune in to #TentTalk on @itunes , @stitcherpodcasts , or wherever you get your podcasts! 🎧 🎙

So many jobs to do on a farm. Add the snow and it is more challenging. The ATV was very handy hauling hay around. Cattle are getting hay now supplemented with Timothy and produce. They love pumpkins. Had to throw a bale away from the gate in order to get in as they always hoover around when I drive up. Snuck up on the pigs in a blanket. They look like sausage links in a skillet! The melted snow is turning their area into a mucky mess. I have almost pulled my feet out of my boots numerous times. The farm yoga move is called a “muck up”. Similar to a push up only with muck. They seem to love it. The hens are not wanting to go outside in the snow yet. Egg collection is more frequent as I check on them often on the way to see the new chicks. It is always a good idea to check their combs to see if any got frostbite. 23 new chicks have feathered and have moved into the princess coop. Another 57 going in on Saturday. This is their temp home until Feb. The older hens will graduate and move on to other duties. The next @foothillsfarmersmarket will be on 12 Jan 2019 @newgrassbrewing. #localbeef #grassfed beef #nograin #localfarm #fresheggs #organicfeed #happypigs #happycattle #happychickens #gottobenc #localvegetables #localfruit #foothillsfarmersmarket #newgrassbrewing #clevelandcountyhappening #uptownshelby #localfarmer #supportlocalfarms #smallfarms #smallscalefarming

This littlle yellow duckling hatched yesterday & it seems that he has arrived a few days ahead of his brothers & sisters. They are still making their way out of their eggs in the incubator. We have popped this little guy in with our 3 week old ducklings to keep him company. Can't believe there is only 3 weeks between - they grow so quickly! So it looks like we are going to have LOTS of ducklings for our school holiday tours! 🦆👧👦🦆

Are all of the crops you grow worth growing? Can you grow them all well? Could you grow better crops by growing less crops. You only have so much time, focus, and bandwidth. It’s always easy to take on more, and it takes a lot of wisdom to slow down and pair down. One of the topics Elliot Seldner @fair_share_farm talks about on today’s podcast. Listen on iTunes or by searching for Farm Small Farm Smart wherever podcasts are played. . . . . . @diegofooter #paperpot #paperpottransplanter #smallscalefarming #marketgardening #marketfarming #marketgardener #marketfarmer #smallfarms #urbanfarming #theurbanfarmer #farmsmallfarmsmart #farming #farmequipment #cooltools #growyourownfood #notractor #modernfarmer #farmtool #saveyourback #easiestjobonthefarm #appropriatetechnology #letthetooldothework #nomorebendingover #makefarminggreatagain

So lets talk maple syrup 🍁. I will likely do a few posts on this because there's a lot of info! First off, one of the most frequent questions I get is "when do you make maple syrup?" Maple sugaring season typically starts in late winter/early spring. So think end of February through March, and finishing up at some point in April, depending on the weather, and your location. The temperatures are a key factor for making syrup. It must be above freezing (32° F) during the day and below freezing at night. These temps act like a pump causing the sap to run up the tree trunk during the day and back down at night, giving you the most sap flow during the day. On a good day you may have to change your buckets multiple times. Maple sap is clear and thin, just like water. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make just 1 gallon of syrup! Needless to say it's a lot of boiling down. It's best to do it outdoors, or in a sugar house, which has an open ceiling, because of all the steam the evaporation creates. Trust me, it will gunk your walls all up. Don't ask me how I know that.😉🤦‍♀️ Once the sap boils down enough you must watch the temperature closely. It turns into syrup at exactly 219°F, and will violently boil over and burn very quickly above that. Again don't ask me how I know.🙈 In the sugar house we not only watch the temperature of the syrup but we also check the density with a specific gravity hydrometer. To legally bottle and sell maple syrup in the US and Canada, it must have a minimum density of 66.9 brix, which means it's at least 66.9% sugar. 🥞 #maplesugaring

Merry Christmas! Our field seed order is in, and it’s the most wonderful time of year! It looks a lot different than it used to. In our first year I remember packet upon packet of a seeds, with tons of varieties. Going into our third year we know what we like to grow and we just wanna grow more of it! Can’t wait to get them in the ground, but unfortunately, for now, I have to. Here’s to spring! . . . . . #local4local #smallfarms #farmersmarket #eatlocal #youngfarmers #springtimeisfuntime #marketgardner #roseburg #pnw #oregon #investinthefuture #supportlocal #merrychristmas

Don't you love getting awesome stuff in your mailbox? . Today was a good mail day. We got a box of candy coated pecans as a gift, a #pottywatch to remind our four year old to STOP playing and go potty AND this awesome seed catalog I've been waiting for. It would have been a perfect mail day if someone would have shoved dinner in there as well! I've been reading all about the Gettle family and I can't wait to buy seeds from them and make a new garden plan.

The gardens are asleep, so we've been focusing our energy on all things "homesteading" lately. 😉 . Like stacking rows and rows of firewood to keep us warm, rendering tallow and lard...and butchering a deer. . Last week, we finished up processing the buck my husband shot during hunting season. . We're looking forward to lots of venison burgers during the summer of 2019! We grind the venison with pork fat from Woodbridge Dairy Farm, since the venison is too lean on it's own. We call them Bacon Venison Burgers.😋 . Butchering a deer is a LOT of work... but watching the freezer fill up is incredibly rewarding! . Now if only my egg basket would fill up. 😣 Between molting their feathers and the short days(egg production goes waaaaay down when there is not enough day light), the ladies are SERIOUSLY slacking!🐔 . I'm getting a little crabby because it's baking season and I need eggs to make Grandma Hamm's Peanut Butter Cookies!🍪 . You're going to want to make them too. 😍 You can find the recipe by clicking the link in my profile. 🙌 . Do you have a favorite cookie recipe? Do share! . P.S. This is an old photo, in case you were wondering why it says 2016 on the butcher paper. 😂 . #threeacrefarm #homesteading #winteriscoming #homesteadlife #smallfarms ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Winter time on the farm is for growth -- of infrastructure that is! We are so excited to see the frame of our new high tunnel up at the seed farm. 🎉 This tunnel will help create a more controlled environment for our seed crops and our farm crew can't wait to get growing in there. Fingers crossed for calm winds and clear weather later this week when we hope to "skin" our tunnel, aka put the plastic on. 📷 Photo cred goes to Farmer Steven. . . . #organicseedfarm #farmersteven #seasonextension #seedcrops #organicseed #winterfarming #winteronthefarm #hightunnel #organicfarm #smallfarms #hudsonvalley
