Thank you for supporting your farming community.

News from  the farm

Dec. 4th

We have made our first Delivery to Madison since the market quit. It was good to see everyone since Russell sees everyone during the season and I see folks in the winter. It was a nice day this next weekend looks like it will be cold  next weekend as well as the whole week. We have been at times a full 10 degrees cooler than the predicted temps for our area and the plants have gotten cold and have frozen but have withstood it. So we will see what makes it even as we cover them for the next week. Crops in the high tunnels are coming along well, still babies ,and it takes them longer to grow in the short day lengths. 

Just to remind everyone. The store is edited every Monday so you will have the most updated list of products available.  I also posted the store on our Whirlwind Farm Facebook page you will have to go to the products tab to see it.

Delivery times to Huntsville/Madison every Saturday is 9:00-10:00 am Lathum, 10:30 -11:30 am Madison.

Tuesdays in Collinsville at Dr. Frannie Koes office from 3:00-5:00 pm. 

On a different note we should have the outside of our cabin finished by Christmas Yeah! Will post pictures. See you all later.
