Half Acre Farm

Just last week, we discovered a u-pick vegetable farm about a mile away from our house. We tried it last weekend, went again this weekend, and I have a feeling we will be stopping by regularly through the end of the season. Half Acre Farm is located within Boxx Berry Farm, so it's very convienent to get an ice cream, a few berries, and then stock up on veggies for the week. We have some veggies growing, but definitely not enough to sustain us. Until we can grow that much, it is way more fun to go to Half Acre Farm and dig up our own veggies!  Seriously, have you ever gotten to go dig up your own potatoes and carrots?  Chop off your own cauliflower? Way more fun than getting them from the grocery store!

Here is what we got this week: cauliflower, fingerling potatoes, and carrots. As an added bonus, the carrots were even free if you promised to spread the word. So go check it out, you won't be disappointed! When we get back from our trip next week, I have great plans for stocking up on all of our veggies!
