Warm Greetings!

Growing season is rapidly approaching here at Frogsong Farm. Before we turn our attention to tending our hemp seedlings and transplanting them into the field, we’re busy shipping CBD around the country, working farmers markets, and developing new products (details coming soon).

FIELD NOTES

Over the course of several weeks, we transferred around 100 tons of local horse manure to our main field. This was no small task! Farmers Brett, Reid, David and Chuck took shifts on the tractor transferring and spreading it all. As we often discuss, adding organic matter to the land is one of the best ways to ensure a healthy crop and lasting soil fertility. This will benefit the land for years to come.

APPAREL

You asked and we listened- Frogsong Farm apparel is on its way! Special thanks to those customers who are eager to join in the fun and help represent us out in the world. We took our time since there were a few important considerations when creating this clothing line. First, garments needed to be made in the United States. Second, we wanted to incorporate garments made with hemp. And third, we wanted all cotton to be organically grown. 

It took a while, but we’ve been able to satisfy all of these requirements. We found a surprisingly soft U.S. made hemp/cotton blend t-shirt (60% hemp and 40% cotton).  All our other items are 100% organic cotton and made in the U.S. Expect to see hats, shirts, and hoodies. We would love to hear your ideas and feedback on these new items as time goes on.

100% Organic Cotton Frogsong Farm hoodies coming soon. Stay tuned.

ON THE HORIZON

In a few weeks we’ll be fertilizing, disking and tilling the field, building our raised beds, then laying the drip tape and mulch. After that we’ll be seeding between the rows with our cover crop blend of beneficial flowers, forbs and grasses. Soon after we’ll be ready to tuck our hemp plants into the earth, and the 2019 growing season will be underway! Stay tuned for updates.

Resting season at Frogsong Farm means cover cropping and adding organic matter. The benefits to the soil compound year after year.
