Video: 30 weeks of Local Food at Wishful Acres Farm!

I hope you all enjoy this video I put together!

Each week during our 2014 CSA season, I took a picture of the CSA member share.  I have now compiled all of the shares into a short video, entitled "30 Weeks of Local Food".  It's so interesting to watch the season progress, as reflected in the type of food that is in season here along the Illinois / Wisconsin border!

Here is the video!

What's growing here now in January? Lots!!!

The Wishful Acres Farm microgreens CSA program is in full swing!

Our USDA Certified Organic micro-greens are grown in indoor greenhouse conditions all winter long, right here on our farm on the IL / WI border.  It may be below zero outside, but we're growing!

Our Winter CSA members have been receiving fresh micro-greens biweekly since early December, and the program continues through late April.

A large microgreens CSA share is pictured below:

And a small microgreens CSA share is pictured here, below.  These bags contain half the microgreens of a large share:

Now you know what's growing right now here at Wishful Acres Farm!

Lots of storage vegetables, so our farm members can continue to "eat fresh" from our farm well into the winter.
