Agritours of the Farm

We are offering a chance for school children and/or Families to come to the Farm and have an experience they won't soon forget.

Fun on the Farm

     I remember growing up as a young teenager in Salt Lake City.  Every year the schools would organize a " Career Day" where people from the community would come in and tell what they did for a living.  I remember hearing from Doctors, Lawyers, Mechanics, Firemen, Police Officers, Armed Forces Recruiters,  Dentists (my Dad), Engineers,  Teachers, Businessmen,  and many other professions.  So far in my life I have tried out several of those careers and have enjoyed them and learned a lot.

HOOPS!! The Hoop House Loses it's Top!

Thursday, April 7, the winds gusted another powerful storm through the Farm.  A huge burst of wind whipped the wood and metal fixtures from the west side of the Hoop House, so the top plastic ripped off!

 

 

The Many Faces at the Farm!

Vegetables, herbs and ShareHolders Baskets are not the only things growing here!  Summer and Joshua and Pepper, the dog, join the plants to happily bloom each day on the Farm.

A Peek Inside the Farm "Houses"

Within the Hoop House, winter crops are lush and vibrant.  Within the greenhouse,

 Lyndy nurtures tomato, pepper, cucumber and other warm season crops for Spring

Preparing for Spring

Balmy winter days:  Warm sunshine and gentle breezes are perfect outside-work-in-the-garden opportunities! 

We've filled the greenhouse with new seedlings:  several varieities of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, cabbage, broccoli, along with okra and eggplant and a few melons and herbs.

So What If It's Cold? Meadow Valley Farm Is STILL Green!

     Luscious and tasty tidbits!  Chinese Cabbage(photo), along with carrots, cabbage, radishes, beets, green onions, broccoli, kale, spinach, collards, cilantro, baby lettuce, green beans and sweet peas fill our 30 x 100 foot Hoop House.

2011 Honey Harvest
