Field Trip to Lattin Farms
Woo hoo! I took a field trip to visit Lattin Farms in Fallon, Nevada. This is where the magical veggies in my weekly CSA box are born. It is about an hour from my house and the area is a mini greenbelt for Nevada. The fine folks at Lattin Farms host all kinds of events throughout the year. It is a fun, little farm to visit on almost any day. And, even when the crops aren’t all going, you can drop by for a quick bite to eat from the country kitchen.
There was a ladies luncheon going on when we stopped by to the visit so the staff were very busy. After we went inside and asked for permission to wander around for pictures, we were told to make ourselves at home. It’s a pretty friendly place. There was a box of freshies on the porch just like my CSA box where I noticed this and I definitely think it shows what kind of family farm it is:
It is still very early in the season here in Northern Nevada so there was more going on in hoops and greenhouses than in the ground but it was still pretty fun just the same. Later in the year, there is a bigger store for all of the produce and a area where I they do events, classes, etc. My favorite time to visit is actually in the fall for the corn maze. Stay tuned for that one in October. Lattin Farms does this up right every year!
In the meantime, here’s what they are growing:
