Plant List 2018

We’ve survived some frigid weather this winter and while we are thankful for it as it only helps to rid the area of the pests that do so much damage, we are very much looking forward to Spring with its warmer temperatures and opportunities to be back in the dirt! We have placed our seed order just this week, and now we can publish our Plant List so that you all can start planning your gardens with your Harp & Shamrock Croft plants! Take a look: Plant list 2018

Stay tuned for information on our Backyard Gardening 101 Class where we will show you how to get started growing your own chemical-free food! Stay warm!

Now Open for CSA 2018 Sign-Ups!!

We’ve got exciting news! Since so many of you enjoyed our inaugural CSA program (approximately 150 in fact!), we are bringing it back for another season! If you don’t know what CSA means, it stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it is basically a weekly subscription to our freshest chemical-free produce. Each share for Spring and Fall costs $20 and will contain about $23 worth of produce; Summer costs $25 per week and will contain about $27 worth of veggies and/or eggs. What a great value, right?

And an IndieGoGo We Go (Again)

Hello, Everyone. We hope that your snowy weekend has been enjoyable.

Two weeks into the Campaign and everything has been going great. So far we have reached 29% of the goal. A few of the footers for the 30’x12’x50′ donated frame went in this week, so we hope to be done and have the frame fully in place soon.

The funds raised through the campaign will help to buy the 6mil plastic, end walls, side venting system, and door.

Can you please take a minute and look at our Campaign by clicking on the photo below and share with your family, friends, co-workers, etc. The more supporters that we get the faster we can get to work for 2018.
