These guys are making the world a better place and are bringing local grains back to NJ! @rivervalleycommunitygrains You are great partners! And we love working with you! The other day was a long day, but this year’s harvest of rye and now Einkorn wheat is behind us. The Einkorn was weighed and bagged. And it only took us 6 hours. 🤓 Next up is the cleaning/dehulling process.  #negrains #njgrains #coldbrookfarm #rivervalleycommunitygrains #diamondjfarmsnj #localgrain #localwheat #localfood #ruthiesfarm #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #dankorye #dankoryeflour #einkorn #einkornflour

Morning After the Storm.  Our Bio-swale / Detention Basin did its job.  Ida’s 6.5”+ of rain (it maxed out our rain gauge!!) filled it to the brim, but it did not over-top AND our grain field suffered absolutely no erosion due to the red clover cover crop.  #permaculture #permaculturedesign #bioswale #watercatchmentsystem
Homemade gooey, chocolate-y 100% Cold Brook Farm Danko Rye cookies (with Maldon salt on top). Scrumptious and right from milling last night to the mixer this morning! Life is good! Thankful for our good fortune, great collaborators @rivervalleycommunitygrains , and cookies. #rivervalleycommunitygrains #localbaking #cookies #dankorye #coldbrookfarm #newjerseygrains #diamondjfarmsnj
As part of our Permaculture plan, we have a design element called a bioswale to handle water from the gutters, leaders, and elsewhere (the sky) as part of a water catchment system. This is in lieu of dry wells. This area will be planted with water loving plants—plants that can survive in and even thrive in wet conditions. Tropical Storm Henri poured 6+inches of rain on us and came before our plantings, the finishing touches (like top soil) and a bit of sand were in place. The water ended up here while the house was dry! What an amazing engineering achievement!! #permaculture #permaculturedesign #bioswale #watercatchmentsystem #tropicalstorm #tropicalstormhenri2021 #thatsalotofwater

The many-faceted bloom of Asclepias incarnata or Swamp Milkweed. Not only beautiful, but vital to the successful metamorphosis of the Monarch caterpillar to butterfly. It is one of the varieties of Milkweed that is host plant to this gorgeous creature. The flowers are wonderful for nectar for a variety of pollinators, but the leaves provide the food source for the caterpillars. #monarchcaterpillar #asclepias #coldbrookfarm
One of my favorite veggies is now locally and organically grown @ethosfarmproject !!

We tackled this patch of ragweed, that took over a disturbed area, and weeded it by hand. No glyphosate on #coldbrookfarm !! #weeding #organicfarming #tewksburynj
