High Ground Farm on the Eastern Triangle Farm Tour September 18-19

Carolina Farm Stewardship, Eastern Triangle Farm Tour will be September 18-19 this year, and High Ground Farm is, again, one of the 24 farms, which will offer a tour, and goods for sale from the farm. It is a wonderful way to connect with the many farms that supply the delicious vegetables, eggs, fruits, meats, and cheeses for local markets, restaurants, and grocery stores in the area.

A ticket may be purchased online, at a Triangle Whole Foods Market, or on the day of the Tour at the first farm you visit. It is a celebration of farm life, and all the wonderful produce brought to you by the farmers and the land. A lovely day of adventure for you and your family and friends!

The Summer, a Flurry of Produce !

The summer is a flurry of activity: Tomato gathering, cutting basil from the kitchen garden, gathering eggs from the soft and gentle hens, washing, and packaging the bounty...and taking them to the waiting Chefs, and Whole Foods! My kitchen is more often, than not, littered with basil leaves, tomatoes waiting for me to freeze for the winter; jars, baskets, labels, and ribbons.

The usual events of country living unfold daily: Hens sitting on eggs, Thomas stalking mice in the barn, a Copperhead spotted in the Periwinkle thicket, crows whooping down on the maize yellow pears high in the ancient pear tree, the sound of a Bobcat cry jolting me from deep sleep, a face to face meeting with a coyote in the back pasture, and of course Calum always at my side to see it all.

There is such wonder and beauty here!
