Want free fall produce?

Turning under our cover crop for fall planting

We are excited to begin our fall growing season, but it’s time to to plant, weed, and harvest tons of food! We need all the help we can get, as we are a small family operation. We have 8 weeks of production left and are looking for a few new, dependable worker shares to join us and learn about how we grow our fall goodies.

We are looking for applicants for our CSA worker share program. This means that you will come to the farm and help us out in exchange for a free CSA basket. This is a great way to be a part of the growing experience, learn more about the food you eat, and get to know the farmers who grow your food. We are only an hour away from Atlanta and it’s a great way to get out and enjoy the beautiful outdoors, or get in your daily workout.

To join as a CSA worker, one day of work per week gets you a full CSA basket on the weeks you work. We would like an 8 week commitment to finish out the year for any new applicants. Please feel free to contact us at salacoacsa@gmail.com if you have any questions about our worker share program or want to join us for the summer growing season.

We are excited to begin our summer season, but it’s time to dig in and get those weeds under control! We need all the help we can get, as we are a small family operation.

Current Happenings at Wolfscratch…

Well, this week has been pretty crazy for us!

The tomato and pepper plants are in the ground, and survived the frost last night.

In the midst of our tomato planting, and all the rain this past week, we have been trying to finish painting our barn. Unfortunately, our 5 goats love to scratch the paint off the siding as soon as we turn our backs…We moved the goats to the back side fo the barn so the paint could cure, but this did not last too long. During the heavy rain this past week, the pasture behind the barn flooded, leaving our goats standing in water! The whole family was down at the barn moving the goats back to their original (dry) home and towel drying them off to make sure they didn’t get sick. Everything turned out fine – except for the barn paint – and we are back to out regular schedule!

Early Spring Season

Cutting in the cover crop

With all this crazy weather, spring has arrived early for us this year! We have been quite busy keeping up with the new plantings and have just harvested our first crop of the year, for the local Jasper restaurant 61 Main. Our French Breakfast radishes will be put to good use at this restaurant!

French Breakfast Radishes

61 Main is a Jasper staple, and is always crafting unique dishes and seasonal, sustainable fare from local farms & skilled artisans. My favorite is the braised short ribs – the style changes, but they are always delish! If you are in the area, this restaurant is a must to sample some of the best local “farm-to-table” food around!

Check out our new blog post at Wolfscratch Farms for some more cool pics of spring at the farm!
