Spring came early this year and as a result the harvest began 2 weeks ahead of schedule. CSA distributions began the first week of April and our first farmer's market was Saturday, April 7th.
CSA harvesting and packing takes up a good bit of our time these days, but everything is looking really great. It is a difficult time of year because we harvest 4 days a week and are still busy with maintaining spring crops and planting summer crops.
A new market opened up in Tuscaloosa right on the river. The facility is very nice and we had a good turn out for the first day. We will be selling produce there each Saturday morning from 7am to noon. It is located right across the street from the Tuscaloosa Public Library. Thursday, April 12th, begins the Homegrown Alabama farmer's market. We will be selling produce there each Thursday afternoon from 3pm to 6pm. It is located on the grounds of Canterbury Episcopal Chapel on the corner of Hackberry Lane and University Blvd.
