What a beautiful day for a farm tour! We couldn't have asked for better weather. This tour, sponsored by Kenai Soil & Water Conservation District and Kenai Local Food Connection in collaboration with Alaska Farm Tours was the special kick-off event for Harvest Moon Local Food Week.
We had over 30 people in attendance!
Abby started the tour off in the pavilion telling everyone about the farm. 14 greenhouses are here and what is grown in them. About the hydroponics and the greenhouses that are heated so she can start in January/February for the growing season. What is involved in the CSA program and when/how that started.
She talked fondly of Carol Martin and the help He gave in the begining (and continues) of Ridgeway Farms. How her first well was dug because of him.
Than it was off to each greenhouse. What is being grown, why, how, and how they got their names. The trial and errors that have been made. Most of all how much has changed and why.
Thank you so much for coming. We look forward to seeing you at the farm!
