summer 2010 crop tour - peas

These are Certified Organic Peas. These peas were sown into this field with the hopes of being a clean crop that we could harvest. Worst case scenario would have been that they came up dirty with weeds and we would have plowed them in as a legume plow-down. They came up beautifully though and it will be a bumper crop of peas for us. They will be used for human consumption in Split Pea Soup or Pea Butter or used for other organic farmers who need organic pea seed for next spring.

  1. John, just found your blog via Eat Local First, and you have a new fan.

    I'm producing a blog-umentary series called 'From Local Farms' [my website should link up when I post this, I hope..] - each episode will feature a different farm, and I'll simply be looking to show the people behind the operation, and what it is they do best. I'd REALLY like to have your farm involved in the project, if you'd be willing. It would take about an hour or two to show me around the farm, hopefully at a time when there's some action to shoot. Let me know if you're interested,
    Kevin
