The Farm

We are residents of Hidden Springs planning for the agricultural areas in the community. Our focus for 2016 is on row crops, perennials, pumpkin patch, and a corn maze. We want to bring back the vitality, production, and sustainable features of the agriculture that allowed this community to exist and thrive. The farm draws people to our community. It is a source of pride and sets Hidden Springs apart from other developments, it is a place of wonder for our children, a space for nature and people to coexist harmoniously.

We will be working at the farm this Friday, 8-10 AM.  Hope to see you there.

Upick corn and flowers will start on Monday.  Once upick starts you are all still welcome to pick corn and flowers on our normal work days, Mondays 7-9:00 PM and Fridays 8-10:00 AM.  We are limiting corn harvest to 6 ears per family until we see how much demand there is for upick and how fast the corn ripens.  We are going to offer upick on both work times because corn needs to be picked frequently.    In addition to the sweet corn we also have decorative corn this year, not edible,  for home decoration projects.  That you to Gina and Alisa for offering to help with upick. Here’s the announcement that is going out to the community.

Upick at Hidden Springs Community Farm

Please do not pick corn from the corn maze area, this corn is NOT for human consumption.   Upick is located next to the split rail fence at the farm.  Farm group members will be there to help you.

We had a great turn out for the first night of corn and zinnia  upick.  Thanks to all in the farm group who are making upick happen.  We will continue with corn and zinnia upick while supplies last.  This year we are also experimenting with a Friday morning upick since both those crops need to be harvested more than once a week.  Farm group members, that’s you, are welcome to pick corn and zinnias when you come to the farm to work.   

The harvest last night was varied and plentiful:  squash, eggplant, cucumbers, beans, chard, beets, tomatoes, peppers, corn and flowers.   We will be working again this Friday morning, 8-10AM to continue with harvest and spot weeding.
