Hey Folks,

CSA info for 2015

This is the last week for our Fall CSA. We have had a great season and met a lot of new customers. Many folks have asked about the CSA for 2015. We are in the process of tweaking it and updating our website at the same time with a new website designer. As soon as we get all of the info together and the kinks worked out, we will let you know. Thanks for helping us have a great season and we look forward to 2015.

Up to our Ears in Corn! "How sweet it is!"

Sure enough, that's how it is just now.  Sweet corn all around...in the fields, in the bins, in the wagons, in the CSA crates, up at the market and piled up on the farmhouse kitchen table being prepped to go into the freezer.  As Jackie Gleason once said, "How sweet it is!"  Now I'm dating myself for sure...anyone out there remember the TV show "The Honeymooners"...man, how hard we laughed at the antics coming from that show.  That time of laughter helped relieve the stress from the day and at times, we could see ourselves in some of what went on.  Many of you are s

It's a "Corny" Sitaution!!

Although we are growing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, it seems as if the sweet corn has taken over the farm.  I just got back from a "walk about" and it seemed like everywhere I looked ...there was the sweet corn...and then there was more sweet corn!  So what is going on at Miller Farms anyway?  Mr. Ben has been planting corn every week so that the sweet corn is ongoing and plentiful.  Last year we had the situation of sometimes running out of sweet corn; Mr.

The Sun is Up...

The sun is up!  Pick your own berry patches are open with the blackberry patch offering the most ripe berries.  Fresh corn is being pulled, melons are being gathered and tomatoes are coming in from our fields.  Other produce like peppers, eggplant and a variety of squash are coming in on the "gathering wagon".  Summer produce is in full swing and there are many choices available for your week-end "grillin" and "cookin".  Load up your car and take a little drive into the country; we are here ready to help you.  PS...don't forget the butter for the sweet corn and

Just a little drive in the country!

That's us...just a little drive in the country.  Our farm is nestled up against the Wilderness Battlefield in western Splotsylvania county.
