Strawberry harvest season is about three and a half weeks here at NMF. The brevity is balanced by the intensity. For these three weeks, we will schedule almost every other activity on the farm around strawberry harvest, which is itself scheduled around the weather. It's a lot of work, but the results are delicious.
This past week we've been busy pulling together the last of the details to start our sheridan market this Saturday. Our first year apprentices are getting their first taste of the routine of Sheridan market. The first years have been involved in almost every detail of preparation. We've been carefully harvesting crops, prepping supplies, checking equipment and coordinating with all our wonderful neighbor growers, cheese makers, and bakers. We are excited to have a great selection for Sheridan market this Saturday!
