Hoop House Hoopla!

The past few weeks have been dedicated to the construction of a 16×32 ft. greenhouse at the farm. They say there is a ‘first time for everything’ and this has been one of those times for all involved. Thanks to many helping hands, brains and bodies we have managed to construct a very stout and strapping structure if I do say so myself! However, it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings(oh dear, I am on a cliche crusade tonight!). Hopefully she hits the glass shattering high note this coming weekend because I am ready to get in there and fill it full of flowering flats! For now a few pictures of the process. I will post the final photo as soon as we have stretched the plastic and bolted on the doors!

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.
