Farm Happenings for November 12, 2019

Posted on November 10th, 2019
Dear Farm Friends, When I (Sarah) looked at last week’s message (Conner) I wasn’t sure what more there was to say this week. What a season it has been! It had all the required ups and downs. There have been crops that worked well and others that didn’t.  More than anything... read more »

Farm Happenings for November 5, 2019

Hello Farm Family Well it finally happened - a real hard freeze. This signals the end for some parts of the farmscape and the beginning for many others. We've officially said goodbye to peppers and field lettuce. The fennel and celery too, though cool loving, are not built to withstand hard frosts.... read more »

Greetings Farm Friends,  We hope this finds you well.  **Please make sure to check that you have everything in your box at pick-up. Squash often does not fit. We will post a sign and put it in a bin. It has come to our attention that people have not been noticing this at pick-up. Please keep... read more »

It's official. Fall is upon us. We're saying goodbye to peppers, watching tomatoes melt into the ground, seeding our cover-crops for winter and spring, and transitioning our energy into the covered spaces on the farm. The greenhouse has been cleaned up and organized, the high tunnel beds are prepped... read more »

Hello Farm Friends, The sun was just creeping up over the horizon yesterday morning as I wrote this. Conner had taken off for market with Poz, cold hands, truck full of Fall goodness. It was the last outdoor market of the season. We made it! This week on the farm has been surprisingly warm and dry.... read more »

Dear Farm Friends, We hope this finds you warm and well. This week we've been relishing the sun on our backs and the warmth of our fire. We've been fighting the inevitable back-to-school bugs and appreciating the nourishment from the fields in all forms of soups. Tonight I cooked a bunch of leeks,... read more »

Hi Farm Friends, It's interesting to observe how fall is the complete inverse of spring. In the spring we wait and watch for dry ground and warmth so that we can get out in the ground as soon as possible. In the fall cool weather and rain has us hustling to get xy&z out of the field and sensitive... read more »

Hello Friends! As the light turns to dark on this equinox, the farm is also in full transition to a quieter time. Plenty more work awaits us in the fields and the barn, but the rush of endless fruits and the race against the sun has transformed into a patient labor of filling the larder and preparing... read more »

Farm Happenings for September 17, 2019

Posted on September 15th, 2019
Hi Friends, I'm back! I was in Baltimore all week for a natural foods convention. It was INTENSE and it felt so good to step back onto the farm last night. It was made extra delicious by the fact that I returned home to an amazing stew that Conner had made with lamb shoulder, 1.5 lbs of Jimmy Nardello... read more »
