2016 CSA Sign Ups!

2015 was definitely an interesting year. We as a family, as a farm, and in our CSA community faced a number of challenges. We had chicken thefts (darn foxes), infestations, seed failures, a late Spring and thus late start to the season, some family illnesses, back injuries, and the like.

Despite our challenges we have had a number of successes in 2015 too. We got to meet new CSA sharers, new people at market, and maintain a relationship with many wonderful people. We grew delicious beets, better kale, more herbs - not to mention a crazy amount of dill and beans. We also had our first beautiful crop of strawberries come in.



 Every year comes with its ups and downs. We are looking forward to the year 2016 and have begun our planning and preparations. The fields were prepared this fall so we have a jump-start come this spring. With our review of what worked and didn't work last year we are doing up our wish-list of seeds to buy

Our registration for 2016 CSA is open. Now is the time to get signed up and start making payments so we can have early-bird access to more seeds and better prices. We have set a goal of March 15th for initial payments to be made. We are open to payment arrangements.

For this year we have slightly changed how the shares are set up. We now offer 16 week shares in 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and Full share sizes for $10, $20, $30, and $40 respectively per week.

Fill out registration here for yourself, or to give as a gift (we can provide gift certificates)!

Yum yum blackberries




Giant beets! Great for all uses.

RJR Farm New Direction

After over 6 consecutive years of our direct-to-your-door delivery CSA model we are taking a new direction with RJR 100 Acre Farm. We will no longer be offering the CSA. We are working on developing a new plan for the farm. Thank you to all of our customers who have shared in the land's bounty with us over the past years. We look forward to continuing these relationships that we have built as your friends and local farmer.

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few  batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.

RJR Delicious Red Tomato Salsa

We always like to make multiple batches of this to keep us through the year. Tomorrow we're going to try out some green tomato recipes. RJR's  Salsa First chop all of the vegetables 7 cups of tomatoes chopped 2 cups of onions chopped 1-2 cups of green peppers chopped 1/2 cup of cilantro chopped OPTIONAL 6 Hot peppers - chopped Combine all of the chopped ingredients in a large cooking pot and add the following. 1 Tablespoon of coarse salt 1 Teaspoon of ground cumin 1 can of (156 ml ) tomato paste 3/4 cup of white vinegar Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours at a low simmer. Taste and adjust seasonings, we like granulated garlic and freshly ground black pepper. Pour into sterilized jars. If you like a smoother  salsa  chop finely or after cooking pulse in a food processor if you like a chunky  salsa  rough chop the vegetables.
