Up Close and Beautiful: Our first harvest of 2017 in pictures

We're back at it: another year of harvests!  As we begin our ninth year of harvesting what we grow, it is still amazing to see the beauty and strength of the plants that are our food.  We love what we do and are excited to share it with all of the people who support our farm and eat the produce that grows here.

Lucky for us that we have an aspiring-professional photographer working on the farm this year!  I'm so excited to share with you the scene of the first harvest through the lens (mostly) of Rachel Whitten.  In addition to helping us bring in our largest CSA harvest ever, she also stepped back to capture the goings on throughout the process.  Gene did get his hands on the camera long enough to snap one shot of Rachel herself harvesting scallions (see below).  The 2017 farm crew pulled it all together and a huge thank you goes out to all of them (Sarah, Sara, Sam, Rachel & Trisha). 

So, here it is in pictures: Harvest, wash, pack, final product (CSA share).  One week down and fifteen to go!

  

And that's it folks!  A quick peek at what all goes into getting those veggies from the fields to your farm share boxes.  It is as good as it looks!

By the way, like what you see?  Also, check out Rachel's other work in portraits and nature photography on the web at:
