November Newsletter

Autumn’s pageant has already passed, leaving drifts of red, yellow and orange confetti as evidence of that somber parade, only to disappear promptly into the bellies of makeshift plywood box trucks.  Fall in New England, once signaled by the tang of smoke from burning piles of leaves, the gentle sound of raking, morning frost […]

Hutchins Farm Closing Date and Bulk Orders 2014

This brief e-mail is the official announcement that our annual signup for bulk carrot and potato bags begins today, Sunday the 5th. As usual, carrots will be available in 25 lb bags, and we have such an abundant and beautiful crop this fall that we’ve decided to drop our price back down to $25.  […]

Concord “Ag” Day and Apple Update

August was feeling like September, but September has rocked us back to July. Just a reminder that summer crops are still abundant! We’ve got tomatoes pouring in from the fields, and winter squash is starting to make its voice heard in the farmstand. We also want to remind everyone about Concord Ag Day on […]

2014 Mid-Season Newsletter

July has ripened into August and the trinity of soil, sunshine and water is working its yearly alchemy, transforming itself into the variety of leaf, root and fruit that we recognize as food. It is humbling to contemplate the paradoxes that underlie our operation (really our entire enterprise as humans)-that the systems we are […]

Farmstand opening Sat, June 7th for the season!

Our official farmstand opening will be this Saturday the 7th of June, at which point self-serve sales of produce will be discontinued.  We’ll open (as usual) each day at 11AM, close at 6PM, and the stand will be closed all day on Mondays. Although the weather has warmed somewhat, many crops are lagging behind […]

Hutchins Farm April 2014 Newsletter

Although the weather makes it seem like the growing season is a long way off, signs of spring are slowly appearing, and the untidy remnants of winter are receding into the shadows where we still stumble on them unsuspecting, grateful for the warmth, light and life that are surely coming. 

            Among the […]

Hutchins Farm End of Season 2013 Newsletter

As winter nears, the sun’s daily visits shorten to the point where it barely seems to have risen before it begins its descent.  Crazy fluctuations in the temperature keep us from settling yet into winter mode, but surely we know that 60 degrees on a mid-November morning in Concord, Massachusetts is an anomaly, and […]

Hutchins Farm October Newsletter

For those of you who simply want to know about our closing date and sign-up sheets for bulk produce without reading a whole lot of blather, you can skip to the penultimate, pertinent paragraph which begins with a sentence in BOLD CAPITALS.

Although it has yet to cool down, the shorter days and changing […]

Hutchins Farm 2013 August Newsletter

The middle of August marks, roughly, the middle of the growing season in this part of the world. The sun is still hot and high, the days still long, but they are shorter than they were in the heady days of late June when all things seemed possible, when the unfolding summer seemed as […]

Hutchins Farm is opening on Saturday May 25th

We usually use the first ripening strawberries as our cue to open the farmstand, but the relatively cool spring weather has delayed them this year. We’re ready to open, strawberries or no, so if you visit us this weekend, you’ll find our doors open with limited hours (11-4), with an admittedly slim selection of […]
