2016 Growing Season

February 16, 2016

Our CSA model has changed. In place of a prepaid subscription, this year we will send a Fresh Harvest email to announce what is ready to harvest. Vegetable and beef orders may be made by reply to this email.

Fresh Vegetables

We will have fresh vegetables from May to October and will harvest them every week or two.  Vegetables include cool weather crops such as spinach, broccoli, cabbage, beets, lettuce and greens, onions, leeks, peas, chard, potatoes, and kale.  Warm weather crops include beans, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, melons, peppers, summer squash, tomatoes,  winter squash and sweet potatoes.

Oak Hill Beef

Our new beef inventory will be ready around early August 2016.

Vegetable Transplants

Are you planning a garden this year? If so, you can get a 1-2 week head start on the harvest by planting transplants compared to direct seeding.  Oak Hill has  grown vegetable transplants for our own market gardens for the past 15 years.  We can now grow vegetable transplants to your order. Deadline for transplant orders is March 15. Details about our transplants appear in the next post from Feb. 16.

Vegetable Transplant Orders 2016

February 16, 2016

Are you planting a garden this year?  If so, you can give it a head start by ordering vegetable transplants from Oak Hill Farm. Transplants are young plants that are well rooted and ready to plant in your garden.  Using transplants can give you a 10-14 day faster harvest compared to direct seeding.

          Grown to Order

We grow transplants to your order and we can help you select the transplants that meet your growing schedule and budget.  We start your transplants from seed in our greenhouse, some as early as February. These plant babies thrive in our organic media and nutrients, sunlight and natural spring water for a period of 4-10 weeks (depending upon the vegetable type).

When your transplants are ready, we contact you with pickup timing and final cost. Payment is due at pickup. Pick up is at Oak Hill Farm.

          Transplants Available

We grow both cool and warm weather transplants.

Cool weather types, include beets, broccoli, bulb onions, cabbage, leeks, lettuce, kale, parsley, spinach, and Swiss chard.
