Farm News
The vegetables that come to you each week are the result of lots of hard, mostly enjoyable work. Seeding, watering, transplanting, weeding, mulching, trellising, harvesting washing, bunching, boxing, counting – always counting – are the tasks that fill our days. We couldn’t do it without good help. This year we are so pleased to be working alongside Erin Link and Melanie Hallstein. They are reliable, steady, engaging, hard working women. We are delighted and grateful to have them here each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Howdy! My name is Erin Link and I have a small farm called EB Ranch just 10 miles from Spring Hill. I raise an endangered breed of goat called San Clemente Island goats, or SCI goats. I use their milk in the goat milk soap I make and sell. You can buy some at Spring Hill or visit my website. www.ebranch.weebly.com In addition to goats I raise turkeys, geese, chickens and ducks, not to mention a small home garden and orchard. Working for Patty and Mike is an exciting adventure for me. I feel very fortunate to have such a short commute time and I am learning SO MUCH! Hopefully I will be able to meet some of you from time to time.

Hey, veggie lovers!! I’m Melanie Hallstein. Passionate about good food and living a full life. I’ve volunteered on vegetable farms around the world for about three years, chasing my dream of growing my own food.
Now I live a few miles from Spring Hill and bike here as often as possible. I have three older sisters, live a vegan lifestyle, and maintain a huge diverse vegetable garden at home. I’m currently compiling a book of my bizarre travel experiences. (It’s a winter project. Summer is for sweat, tomatoes, and mojitos.)
After only a month of working here, I can feel my muscles refreshed, my mind racing with questions, and my heart swelling with pride at the beautiful vegetables I’m helping to put in your kitchens! (And... playing around in the dirt all day with Erin feels hardly like work!) We are lucky to be a part of this amazing community that is Spring Hill. Hope to meet you soon!!

Our daughter Maggie whom many of you have met has been pitching in with lawn mowing and administrative tasks when she’s not working her other job. We appreciate whatever and whenever she’s able to help - and we’re loving her scrumptious baking which you may get to sample too!
