Rain or Shine, we’re at the Downtown Farmer’s Market

I feel like I’m in Oregon again. The air is clear, and it smells SO good!

Ok, enough of that… it’s Downtown Farmer’s Market time, and yes, we’ll be there even in the rain.

Today we’re bringing lots of beautiful broccoli. That’s our major crop this year and it’s standing up to this difficult weather very nicely. The heads are totally awesome.

We’re also bringing our baby spinach, arugula, leaf lettuce, and our unique salad bowls. You’ll see these salad bowls have had a hair cut, but are growing back very nicely. Simply give them a good home with sun and water and you’ll have lettuce for weeks.

Also from the garden this week are zucchini squash, rhubarb, onions, and tomatoes.

We’ve got herbs to accompany your fresh veggies. You can get a variety of basil from us, something that no one else has at the market.

Four Country Gals passes Certified Organic inspection

UDAF Inspector carToday was another awesome day, as the Four Country Gals once again passed their Organic Certification with flying colors. All the paperwork was in good order, and the inspector really liked how we grow so much in so little space.

New this year is the Aquaponcis system. His only question is the “paperwork requirement” that may be unique to aquaponics. There are no written standards in Utah, so we will have some important input in that area.

Inspector with BevIn  all, our inspection took about 90 minutes, and that included a tour of the entire farm, from the compost area, to our animals (not under inspection, but still of interest), through all the gardens, into the aquaponics greenhouse, and finally stopping at the chicken coop.

We’re allowed the same inspector three years in a row, and are hoping this guy will return next year to see the changes as we begin a full year with  the big garden completely under the cover of two hoop houses.

Cedar City Downtown Farmer’s Market Update

Here’s the latest on the Cedar City Downtown Farmer’s Market.

New location: Right across from Mike’s Tavern (how convenient). The new location is in the parking lot at 50W and Hoover St. Now, Hoover is one-way coming off of Main St. 50W is a two-way street. We’re occupying the entire NW section of the parking lot. There are several large trees providing shade for most of the market from the time we start.

The set-up is a bit different this year. Those of us considered “truck farmers” are all in one row, with our booths facing west. We’re on the east side of the market and we will have our trucks roped off, so there is no access between us. Depending upon who has what, we’ll expand the length or contract as necessary.

On that row, you’ll find Randy, a truck farmer from Enoch (also the UDAF inspector),
