Spring Planting

Hello from Blue Rock Farm!

I would have liked to type sooner but it’s been busy for me as a full time Spanish/Biology student not to mention your neighborhood farmer. I spend all my time either in the greenhouse or library without too much time to think of other important things…like keeping in touch with you all! Once my semester ends in May I will be better at updating. It will be like you spent your day in the field with me(strange yeah? But with this day and age anything is possible!)

I won’t go into all the details but since I typed last I have been running around all over the county. To Rohrer’s for seed, to LancasterAg for soil, to Mr. Bill’s for fish scraps, to David Dietz’s farm in York for some monthly farmer hobnobbing, to Lowe’s for a sprayer, to Stauffer’s for boxes, to Kristina and Jeff Martin’s for some boards and cinderblock(thanks guys!), to Eastern, Central and Roots Markets, to MU for recyclables,  to the farm to monitor greenhouse heat and seedlings, to ‘The Mart’ in Central Manor for a quick bite to eat, to….to….well I’ll stop here. But I’ve been all around this Lancaster world and even managed to capture some of it on film. I’ll tell you all about it sometime…for now enjoy!

About cmbrady8

Caitlin Brady is excited for the opportunity to work as the farmer in residence at Heritage Creek Farm this coming season. Caitlin spent her childhood and teenage years on a diversified family farm in Northwestern Missouri. She has worked on a variety of farms, ranging from the bountiful fields of tobacco, grapes, corn and soy in Missouri, to the coffee cliffs of Guatemala, organic heirloom vegetables in Silver Spring, PA, and organic cranberry bogs of Cape Cod, MA. In 2010 she rode the train to Lancaster, PA and witnessed for the first time the rich agricultural heritage this county has to offer. It was love at first sight and in 2011 she settled in among the bountiful farm fields of Lancaster County where she started Blue Rock Farm, an organic vegetable farm and CSA. Blue Rock Farm is committed to being a good neighbor in our community and a careful steward of the land. We grow healthy, tasty vegetables without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Our gardens and greenhouse are Pennsylvania Certified Organic.
