Dan at the beginning of his career

Dan is really good at his job.  Perhaps that’s because he started at a young age!  Aside from the wonderful products that he has developed and made available for purchase, he’s made Elkstone’s kitchen a warm, welcoming, amazing-smelling place that the staff hungrily descends on during our lunch hour.  We are always hopeful that there will be extras, or something that just ‘needs’ to be taste-tested, and he often cheerfully obliges us.  He’s great at taking whatever we have grown, and creatively turning it into something entirely new and delicious.  We sure appreciate it.  Thanks Dan!

Fruit forest has been prepped for winter with a compost and mulch top dressing.  IMG_1410

and, our winter greens are getting established in our unheated hoop houses, along with carrots, spinach, turnips, beets, and bunching kale.
