Fall Harvest!

Harvest is going great this season.  Now, that's easy when you've got stellar help like we've got!  Our helpers are awesome! And this brings peace of mind when you happen to be chasin' kids around all day long! Ben and I came to the realization that the best babysitters in the world are mom and dad. period. So it's completely awesome when when you can rely on helpers to pull together the crops and help maintain the farm you've built up over the years.  A team you can completely trust! I will say it again - every farm business needs reliable workers. period. And we love our crew!
Speaking of help, my buddy Tanya Fraser is another super helper, friend and an amazing holistic nutritionist!  I encourage all to visit her website and engage with her! She is SO happy and cheerful and awesome around my kids!  Even offered to babysit and dance and play now and then so I can hit the office or escape outside! What a gem.  It's her lifestyle and what she EATS that I swear makes her a pleasure to be around.  This winter should be a very happy, cheerful one around the farm!  We all love Tanya! 
Our fall carrot harvest is going well.  We are removing tops on the majority and binning them up for winter storage but will run with the tops as long as we can. Cabbage continues to be harvested.  Cauliflower is still sizing and will be a November treat. All potatoes and onions are now up and in the barn. Fresh field treats include Leeks, Kale, Swiss Chard, Carrots, Beets and even Heirloom Tomatoes are still being harvested. 
The days are long and awesome around here.  And we wouldn't have them any other way! Surround yourself with the best people possible, and things just seem to fall into place.  The kids are spending more time than ever in the barn this fall/winter which is great too. 
We are already planning next year!  Can you believe it? haha....
This field above has a lot more to offer so continue looking for fresh at the markets and get ready to enjoy Sosnicki Organic Storage (SOS) all winter long!
