We are experiencing yet another surge in COVID! Please stay safe and know we will be here to answer any questions about the farm, the farmstay and provide contact free holiday shopping.
It has been a year filled with many challenges. We have faced many like everyone else…..but at this time we are most grateful, and thank you all for your support.
The COVID challenges were met with a great blueberry season. Even with all the changes to our processes and scheduling, we were able to share the farm with many old friends as well as meeting lots of new ones. We so appreciated all your patience and understanding with the scheduling and hope that most were able to enjoy berries from the farm this year. If you weren’t able to come see us, we hope you will keep us in mind next year as we look forward with new hope for next year.
In the spring, AAA travel ran an article about farm loops in Oregon and we were mentioned for having Pugs and yacon….the exposure was great, and brought a lot of new visitors to the farm, along with new found interest in our yacon! Thanks AAA!
In addition, NetFlix also ran a series called “Back to Earth” where yacon was mentioned in one of the shows they did in Peru! Again, great exposure for yacon and lots of new customers!
During the summer, we also distilled our first ever lavender harvest. In addition to the U Pick lavender, we were able to offer several lavender products to our farm friends. Essential oils, hydrosol (lavender water), culinary lavender and lavender rosemary salt. These items are listed on our website and can be purchased by mail or direct pick up!
As the blueberry and lavender season came to a close and the heat was upon us, we were faced with our next hurdle. Following the dry winds and storm damage, we lost power, found a water leak under our home and then reached level 3 evacuation all in a matter of 3 days….We left the farm not knowing if our home, farm and beloved farm animals would survive.
Over the next days we were able to evacuate the animals with the help of a couple of angels with grit! Our animals were taken and cared for up north, safe and away from the fires. We spent the next 10 days in a hotel room with 4 dogs and an outdoor cat. Ted returned each day to turn on the generator at home, run a bit of water and grab and item or two.
Other News at the Farm
We were finally able to return home and begin the clean up. Thanks to all of the prayers and good thoughts toward our home and farm everything survived! We were never so thankful to have a mess to clean up!
The yacon harvest was beautiful and crowns are being processed for shipment. They are much better that we anticipated and looking so healthy. Tubers look great and we have begun to process for syrup.
IIn addition to being a powerful prebiotic, this amazing tuber offers many additional health benefits. As a natural sweetener, it does not affect glucose levels, providing a mild flavored sweetness to salads and smoothies. Some of the additional health benefits of yacon include its ability to regulate blood sugar levels, lower “bad” cholesterol, help with weight loss, lower blood pressure, improve the health of the liver, prevent certain types of cancer, boost digestive health, and strengthen the immune system.
We offer yacon tea, yacon syrup and plant products so you can grow your own special yacon garden. Our crowns are being shipped now with more stock than we anticipated. Plant starts will be shipped in early spring. Please feel free to reach out as we are likely able to fill your order for crowns now!
This amazing plant is resilient and hung in there for us to provide a beautiful harvest.
We enjoyed our many guests at the farm stay this summer and look forward to continuing to share the farm with our new “Yonder” guests. This new booking service specializes in offering outdoor experiences focusing on environmental stewardship. Check out our listing on Yonder.
Stay warm and enjoy what winter has to share with us all as we enter into the holiday season. Please share in this time of gratitude and hope.
