We’re looking very official!
Not only do we have tremendous progress to report on the growing side, we’re also proud to show off our official Primacy Farms logo. After all, we are a creative and marketing agency – we couldn’t go on forever without branding! Without further ado, here’s the new Primacy Farms logo:
On to the growth – the fence around the garden is complete. We expanded the area slightly – we’re now over 2,300 square feet of garden space. Teams have lettuce, kale, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, and basil ready for picking. Our community plants that are located around the property – cantaloupes, watermelon, squash and zucchini – are growing strong!
We now have 12 chickens on the property with 14 more coming in the next two weeks. They live adjacent to the garden in a 450+ square foot run with netting over the top to protect them from predators. We had a quick meeting with the seven people who will be tending to them to discuss basic duties, safety, egg collection, cleaning the coop, and acceptable levels of “why did you cross the road?” jokes. All in all, we’re really happy to have them here – they make a wonderful addition to the farm.
Pest preventionPests are a natural part of any garden – and we’ve already got a variety to deal with. Cabbage worms, striped cucumber beetles and aphids to name a few. We’ve been focusing on all organic pest prevention methods to keep our plants healthy:
- Companion plants to deter insects or attract beneficial insects
- Beneficial insects that will naturally take care of the pests
- Organic pest control sprays or treatments – from the garden center variety to the do-it-yourself options like garlic water or soapy water
