Chef Patrick lead us on a culinary adventure Wednesday at the farm. Utilizing what is in season he was able to create a beautiful menu that highlighted the CSA offerings. Thank you so much Chef Patrick for your enthusiasm and creativity. We were honored to have you join us and hope you will come out to the farm and treat us again!
Last week Saint Stephen’s Episcopal School came out to the farm to learn about local agriculture. They toured the farm and harvested some delicious green beans!
Then we got to hang out with them at their school to teach them all about pickling! Loving the farm to school connection!
Thanks for having us Mr. Moran!

#poppysfriendjuniper Hello, everyone! We just wanted to take some time to introduce you to Poppy’s friend, Juniper. You may have seen her hanging around GCF or at the Phillippi Farmhouse Market on Wednesdays. Today is Juniper’s 2nd birthday. She is a Beagle/American Foxhound mix from Ruff World Animal Rescue in Winter Park, FL http://awos.petfinder.com/shelters/FL887.html Juniper is a little shy by nature, but just as sweet as can be once you take a little time to say hello. Poppy has had a great time showing her the ropes around the farm.
Thanks for being such a good friend, Poppy!
