We  hosted a USDA Outreach Technical Demonstration at the farm on May 23, 2017. It rained all day, but that did not stop a good turnout of folks who enjoyed a fine lunch. They also gained lots of valuable information on hoop house and plastic culture vegetable production as well. Representatives from Coosa Valley RC&D, FSA, NRCS, and USDA Rural Development presented info on the support programs they provide to farmers, ranchers, homeowners, and individuals interested in entering agriculture-related activities.

Sneaky Crow Farm was the featured farm in the USDA's blog announcing the 2016 National Farmers Market Week. Above, our wonderful USDA Organic produce was being sold at the Thursday farmers market on the campus of Auburn University.

The Auburn market is NOW OPEN for the season. 

We are busy harvesting the last of the spring/summer vegetables, including snap beans (Rattlesnake), Sun Melons, tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and okra.  Excessive rains during spring and summer months have shortened the life of most of our vegetable plants.

Not to worry, though. We are presently removing dead and dying plant debris and preparing the land for late summer/fall plantings of peas, beans, cucumbers, squash and other short maturity vegetables. We are also preparing our hoop house for planting of cool season crops that will be harvested during the early winter months or over-wintered and harvested in early spring 2018.

Growing in our hoop house in early May 2017 - carrots, Swiss chard, arugula, onions, collards, and strawberries. We also had a couple of rows of snap beans (Contender) growing in the hoop house. The produce was sold at area farmers markets.

The outside collards and turnips bolted (went to seed.) in April. Their beautiful yellow flowers loaded with pollen and nectar served as a food sources for our honey bees, bumble bees, butterflies, wild bees and other pollinators.

As part of our plan to increase items of interest on our farm, we are looking for in-kind contributions of old lumber that we can use to rehabilitate a 100+-year old farm house that was built around 1906.  The house, once rehabilitated, will be furnished with period furniture from the early 1900s and opened to tour groups (schools, clubs, etc.).

The immediate need now is for lumber (planks) that will be used to replace rotten and insect damaged siding.  We would be willing to harvest the planks from old farm houses and/or barns and remove the donated items. We could use some aged timbers to replace foundation timbers.  If you think you have some wood we could use, send us an e-mail with photos of the building or planks to gthornton {at} sneakycrowfarm {dot} com. Thanks.
