What's in season in January 2018, and
other timely information:
Notes for January 2018: Strawberries have a very brief season;
and they start in early April in the South, May in most of the US, and early June in the North - don't miss them: See your
crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops.
And see our guide to local
vegetable festivals, such as
strawberry festivals and
blueberry festivals. Cold weather crops, like spinach,
some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and
early onions being harvested in all but the coldest regions. Many farms and markets still
have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.
You may noticed the new appearance to the website! Simpler, cleaner and
mobile-friendly! I'm rolling it out, page by page over the next 2 months. Everything is still here; you can access it from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.

"I have picked over 100 pounds of berries each of the last 3 years at
Illers. I just received a notecard from them today about opening soon. They have
pick our own or prepicked available. Just wanted to update you about them as I
plan to return and pick 200 pounds this year! My husband has a fruit smoothie

Click here for our Facebook page. Our farm is a collaboration
between three guys: Andrew Bachmann, Jacob Bachmann and Bryan Meyers.
Andrew and Jacob are knowledgeable farmers who are the 4th generation
on their family farm. Bryan is a newbie with more interest and
enthusiasm than experience. Together we are raising grass-fed beef in
Perryville, MO and working to improve and protect the farmland in the
process. We also meet customers in Webster Groves, MO to pick up their
orders and have package options as well as shares available for
purchase. Please email us for a price list. We sell directly to
grassfed beef fans and to reach out to select markets and restaurants
who will appreciate our product and our approach. For individual
buyers, we can walk you through the process with clarity to take away
any uncertainty about buying beef in this manner. We will be happy to
show you the farm before you make any buying decisions, or take you on
a tour the day you pick up the beef. (ADDED: September 30, 2013)
