Here's a vid of our New Idea corn picker. We pick a few hundred bushels dry feed corn to feed our piggies every year. We picked up this well running little picker back in 1999, for $1,000 at a farm auction, what a bargain, just keeps working; gets only 1 day of use every year, then back in the barn. We modified an old JD manure spreader into a nifty self unloading trailer. #dadsprideandjoy
A week ago, our asparagus shoots had barely broken the ground. Today we brought in the earliest of the crop, which barely lasted into the afternoon.

We’re continuing to carry off-Island asparagus, as well. Read More
We’re pleased to introduce Mi Tierra Tortillas to Martha’s Vineyard. These organic, gluten-free tortillas are made in Western Massachusetts using locally grown corn from the fertile Connecticut Valley. They have no GMOs, no preservatives and no additives — just organic corn, fresh water and slaked lime, combined in the ancient Mexican process known as nixtamalization. We are offering Mi Tierra tortillas for sale at the farmstand, and our kitchen team is using them to prepare the popular Farm Beef Tacos take-home entree. Please let us know what you think of them.
