First Hay Crop
This corner used to be a swamp. In 2004 we roughed in a serious raspberry planting that froze out the first winter. Since then it has been untouched. The grass was higher than the hood of the tractor when we mowed a couple of days ago. This one plus acre yielded 23 high density round bales. Its a good thing we had plastic because this was not a drying day and the raindrops started as soon as we got done.
This also represents the end of the 2017 hay season.
The driveway to the farm is almost hidden so we solved that problem by planting a 24 foot carrot at the entrance. You can learn more about Wolverine Farm at www.wolverinefarm.com

The Ralph and Maxine progeny have evolved into a family with international roots that include Korea, Scotland, and India. In like fashion, the products of Wolverine Farm have expanded from potatoes and dairy to carrots, beef, eggs, berries and a broad spectrum of products. It has morphed from a sole proprietorship to an umbrella that covers a variety of businesses that market directly, through farmer's markets, and through commercial outlets.
