Apple pies available on Saturday!

This Saturday we will have Concord’s own Pam Palumbo Templeton from Pies from Kitchens Past selling her old fashioned apple pies made from Hutchins Farm’s apples. They will be made with all organic ingredients!

Pam comes from a longtime Concord farming family- you may remember her father Joe and her uncle Frank from Palumbo Farm out on Lexington Rd. She started making apple pies using her mother’s recipe, and our awesome apples. We think its a match made in heaven!

Pam will be at the farm stand Saturday morning with her pies, come say hi!

Phil flies the coup

For those of you following the saga of Phil, our little barn swallow, we have a happy ending!

After being reunited with his nest-mates by an intrepid crew member, Phil enjoyed a few days of family bonding. Today, he (or she) successfully left the nest of his own accord, and joined his brothers and sisters catching insects. (Hopefully doing a number on the aphids!)
