End of Season Newsletter 2018

Short, windswept days, frosty mornings and the beginning of the endless drone of leafblowers are the sure harbingers of fall in historic Concord, and the end of our growing season. 2018 was a challenging one for us at Hutchins, with a variety of circumstances seeming to conspire against our success. The spring started out […]

Concord's Food, Farm, and Garden Fair - This Upcoming Weekend!

August has ended, and summer is on the wane, but the weather doesn’t seem to agree. The heat continues this week and so does our challenging summer. The field crew has been putting in an enormous effort this year in this unrelenting humidity, and they continue to work in overdrive – our endless […]

July 2018 Newsletter – High Summer is here!

                You are receiving this message because Hutchins Farm is very excited to have begun picking tomatoes (along with other faves like corn and blueberries). The current flow of tomatoes has been characterized as a ‘trickle’, which means that we don’t yet have a consistent supply every day, but we should by sometime […]

We have decided […]

November 2017 Newsletter

With another season at an end, Hutchins Farm prepares for our winter lull, the enforced leisure the northern vegetable grower feels- and chafes at a bit, but appreciates in contrast to the hectic bustle of the rest of the year. Not that complete hibernation is an option, or even a month-long Hawaiian vacation. […]

Closing Day Information and Bulk Order Sign-up 2017

 

 Finally a frost to break the sultry, tropical weather we’ve been having. We welcomed it with relief rather than the usual panic as a normal event (even if it was late in coming), a comfort in these roller coaster days of mayhem and uncertainty. And this tardy mid-October frost found us ready-not to […]

Concord's Food, Farm and Garden Fair - This Weekend!

Concord’s Food, Farm and Garden Fair This Weekend! August has ended, and summer is on the wane, but our crop variety and abundance are on the increase. Summer crops (apart from cucumbers) like corn, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers are still coming on strong, with the late summer/early fall veggies like broccoli, winter squash, […]

August 2017 Newsletter - Mid-Season Update

                  Just a brief note to update you all on the season in progress-in a word, it has been wetter. Which might seem like a positive thing, but definitely not an unmitigated blessing: many fields have remained too wet to work until recently, foliar diseases have appeared earlier than usual on tomatoes and […]
