The news is that Rock River Perennial Garden and Greenhouse is now GAP certified. This is a USDA program focused on food safety. New fencing, packing station, traceability process, water protection and of course loads of record keeping have been keeping me busy. This allows the farm to sell culinary herbs to just about anyone. It was hard work and thanks to the support of the Marquette Food Coop managing the USDA pilot study and the other 9 farms who participated, all of the farms received GAP certified for one year. This recertification and on site visits and trainings are required annually. Congrats to all the farms.
Seed catalogs are coming in...oh I just love that. Soon I'll know what I'll be offering that's new.
The snow has created a mess around the hoop and greenhouses. There's been a lot of shoveling going on around here. Glad I put up extra wood as well since the week of November Indian summer never came.
Happy Holidays to all.
