Now is the time to be thankful for a bountiful harvest at MJ Habadashary. We have had loads of bad news and bad weather but the land has overcome most of them. The Hemp is big and beautiful. This plant loved the heat and the dry weather some will refer to as a drought. The grasses are growing back in the horse pastures lush and renewed. The Bees are alive and well, and the horses are all on home made horse CBD oil.
We've also doubled our Bee hives this year and have 4 total! This is exciting as we will be able to add fresh, local honey to the CSA this year. We also love keeping bees because they will make the garden's flowers larger and more plentiful. They also help to dramatically increase the yield of the vegetables and plants that require pollination to produce fruit. Bees aren't just
good for our garden, they also help the wild plants in the community! Just one bee hive is enough to dramatically increase the number of flowers within gardens for a mile or two around their hive. So they help to beautify your entire neighborhood.
Continuing to clean our portions of the land here has also been a top priority, as much of it was overgrown with Buckthorn. We've saved several apple trees and gained a vast amount of space which we are integrating the soil with cover crops to help reintroduce nutrients and carbon into the soil. Fiber hemp plants are an important plant for crop rotation for a number of reasons. Firstly, despite it being an annual crop, hemp’s roots reach deep down into the soil. This both helps to hold the soil together, reducing erosion, and to loosen the soil, allowing more delicate plants to grow afterward. Secondly, hemp produces high quantities of biomass (a matter which returns to the soil and decomposes, feeding nutrients back into the ground).
We've definitely been running things a little bit different due to quarantine and social distancing, but the farm and land are as active as ever. For our CBD and product orders, we've arranged for more shipping and also have the option of contact-less pickups. Let us know if you have any questions about either. This is one of our favorite times of year and watching the world awake again with green is something magical that we'll never get sick of! There's so much beauty in the growth and change of things.
Peace & Love,
This is why God gave us fears. Because it feels so great to overcome them! Here we go MJ Habadashary is ready to roll into your town. I was a little gun shy on hauling horses because years ago I got in a little fender bender. So I bought a horse. and a horse trailer. and practiced. I asked for help from my sons..(pretty cool alone) and then did a little safe trip to Lake Elmo Park reserve. Now its family and friend trail riding every week. No Limits.
