We practice sustainability at the farm. Crop rotation, use of drip irrigation and re-using the flower water each week are some of the ways we are being kind to the earth.
As of March 11th we are sold out for our coming season of harvest boxes. If you are interested in joining us for 18 weeks of our beautiful flower share, please email Lorrie at shadymaplefarmcsa@gmail.com. We have 3 flower shares for the season available.

Our harvest boxes are on Tuesdays with pickup between 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Farm. 8005 Portland Rd. N.E. Salem, Oregon.

Family work day at The Farm

My very crafty sister, Lisa, designed and crafted this unique quilted banner, just like Dad's many years old stationery.
Orchard, April 14
A beautiful day for a work day on The Farm.


Stretching to the blue sky.
So delicate and pretty.

















Come on guys! I want to go
outside and help, too...



Me too, I can pull carrots with the best of  'em.




A close look at a spring
pulled carrot, "see?"



"Looky, my handful of carrots!"  
They both have a snack for lunch time.




More helpers all suited up and ready to
 work on the raspberries.


"Before" help arrives.


Family to the rescue.



This family knows how to work
and get things done.



af
"After" so much progress in so little time!
Trimmings headed to the burn pile, the rather large burn pile. More onions that were growing in the greenhouse being planted in the background.
Work break to pick
some posies.






3rd wave of lettuce
being seeded in the
greenhouse.

The girls planting blue and lavender
sweet peas for the cutting bouquets. Dad loved sweet peas. Grew them all over his yard.
Grandpa/Great Grandpa would have
loved to have seen this.
"What is in the box?" you might say.
 "A caterpillar with leaves and twigs, of course."
All tuckered out after a day's work.
