May 2017 Newsletter – Opening Announcement

Near weekly nor’easters and cold cloudy weather have characterized this spring, with one brief heatwave to keep us guessing. After two dry springs, our comfortable assumptions of where we might be able to plant our early crops have been punctured, to the detriment of our beautiful, orderly planting plan, now shredded and mingled with […]

Spring is Coming - April 2017 Newsletter

                    Spring is an uncertain season, full of promise and betrayal in equal measure. Never more uncertain, it seems, than this season, with expectations confounded, concerns about whether the world actually works the way we thought it did, suspicions that something fundamental has shifted-a tipping point has been passed, the rules that […]

Closing Day Information 2016 and Potato Bulk Order Sign-up

Just a short note to let you all know that our annual bulk potato sign-ups will officially begin today, Sunday the 9th of October.  We usually have a sign-up for carrots as well, but the difficult weather in July when we were seeding our end of season carrots resulted in poor germination and thin […]

May 2016 Newsletter - Opening for the season!

The long, slow warm up continues—I usually conceive of spring and fall as transitional periods, but the year seems to have stalled and settled into endless spring:  Cold mornings, winds with an edge of winter, slowly unfolding buds and leaves, the sun, already high overhead, yet stingy with its warmth. And, as was the […]

March Newsletter 2016

With the weather wildly careening from warm to wintery, the calendar tells us it’s time to think about the growing season. Already, we’ve taken advantage of the dry, temperate weather to get some fields worked up, and our greenhouses are starting to fill with eager little plants. Last year’s persistent lack of precipitation means […]

Farmstand opening for the 2015 Season on May 30th

We’re nearing the end of what is shaping up to be an uncommonly dry spring, to say the least-we rarely have had our pumps up and running quite so early, and we’ve seen more attrition of recently planted crops than is usual. Nonetheless we persevere, with a fine coating of dust deepening our fashionable […]
