Since fall is perhaps one of the most beautiful times of year here in Floyd County, what better time to visit the farm and retail store? Seven Springs is hosting customer appreciation days on Friday, October 14 8am-5pm and Saturday, October 15 8am-12pm. We are featuring a 10% discount on on-site purchases over $50 of stock items. We are also offering a free 1/2 gallon of Brown's Fish Fertilizer with purchase, while supplies last! This is a great opportunity to purchase cover crop seeds, garlic planting supplies, season extenders, fencing supplies, and soil inputs. Some recommendations for additions to the land for gardeners and farmers alike to enhance soil performance and cover crop production are: compost, kelp, alfalfa meal, feather meal, crab shell, azomite, gypsum, phosphorous, Humic DG and Biochar. Adding a soil life enhancer such as Inocucor, Actosol, or EM-1 will greatly benefit your soil and help with spring prep. Stock up on animal products such as Kelp, Redmond Mineral Salt, Redmond Conditioner, our new Selenium Blocks, and Diatomaceous Earth to keep those animals thriving through winter. We have plenty of heavy-duty T-posts, deer fencing, bird netting and other fencing supplies available at 10% off; stock up for those fencing projects!
Dr. Mark Schonbeck will also be offering free consultations from 10am-12pm on Friday, October 14. He will give accurate, informative, and helpful recommendations based on soil test results, soil type, field history, and goals. He can help you choose the best soil-building techniques, inputs, cover crops, crop rotation, and soil-friendly weed and pest management strategies. Mark has helped many, many farmers save time and money, while enhancing overall farm performance. Bring your soil test to be interpreted and analyzed. Ron Juftes will also be available during both customer appreciation days to answer gardening and product questions and make recommendations based on your specific scenario. So, grab that soil test and come on up for a visit; we look forward to seeing you!
