Irrigation Going Live

FAC member Carl Prizzi and I (with the help of Mike, another volunteer) actually connected drip pipe and pressured up the system today in field 2 over the bio-intensive raised beds. We're in production and we feel pretty good about it. Today we pulled the header pipe out of its shallow trench, drilled holes with the special auger bit, pushed in rubber gaskets, attached valved feeder lines, and connected the 50 foot drip hoses. Things did not go smooghly at first. We kept getting leaks around the gaskets in the PVC pipe. We learned that we needed to drill the pilot holes slightly bigger to avoid excessive pressure on the gaskets. If the fit was too tight, the gaskets were ripping. After a

We are also looking for those of you with an artistic flair who would like to paint signs that are needed in many areas around the farm. If you are interested in helping out please contact our Farmstand Coordinator - Danielle at danielle@nassaulandtrust.org and she'll schedule some time to get you helping out as soon as possible. You can work as little or as long as you want, we're always grateful for the help you provide. The farm thrives on community support. We look forward to seeing you soon! Thank you!

Revving Up for Spring

We had a wonderful opening day with record attendance and a good time all around. It's always a joyful and festive kick-off for the new season at the farm. We thank all who helped and everyone in our community for coming out to welcome in the new season. After a symbolic ribbon cutting presided over by Malverne's Mayor McDonald, the afternoon was filled with music, events for the kids, hay rides, animal visits, vendors, and a little food -- and a glass of beer or wine for the adults. But now it's on to farming. The greenhouses are full, the fields are filling up, and the animals are thriving. We had four baby goats born over the winter, and three more kids last week. This week a lamb w
