The Nitty Gritty Dirt Farm.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Farm. Ahh. Oh how this partnership was meant to be! A bit about the Nitty: the farm is located near Harris, Mn, north of Taylor Falls, Mn and a short walk to the St. Croix River. The farm is a 15 acre Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), certified organic, and home to a variety of animals. Goats, as you have read, sheep, chickens, pigs, a single cow (Reba), two horses (Tess and Buzz), turkeys, and honey bees all share in the 15 acres that we produce and exist on. The farm is own and run by Robin and her partner, Gigi. This summer there are five interns: myself, Karla, Emily, Holly, and Liz. A completely female run organic CSA!
The picture of the colorful veggies are the radishes that we harvested yesterday and the photo below is the crew planting Celeriac. I'm sporting the yellow tee and representing SnoPac, my frozen veggie supplier at the Co-op with my new, not so clean now, cap.
