Wanna See What 6,000 Collards Look Like?

We've been BUSY BUSY BUSY! Here are 6,000 baby Collard Green plants awaiting their new in-ground home.

 They are such whiners - only a few days and they were planted, but like all babies, these need coddling. It takes a few weeks for them to adapt to their new home, and then begin growing.

We lovingly nurture each plant, using sustainable farming techniques.

Sustainable Farming Techniques can be interpreted differently by farmers. Our interpretation includes treating the environment with the utmost respect, using as few chemicals as possible, avoiding pesticides, composting with as many organic compounds as we can lay our hands on, and treating our farm animals with great respect and gentleness.

In addition to the collards, we've been busy planting a host of other greens! Take a look at the top of our blog to see what has been planted!

Because of the warmer-than-normal temperatures last month, our Collards may not be ready for Thanksgiving. 

But Hope springs eternal! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I love Beasley's Farm.
I love Veggie Hugs.
I even love Veggie Regards.
But most of all, I love the 'family' that makes all of this possible. Thank you-Michelle
