Photo of the Week

Some of our more enthusiastic young shoppers getting their veggies at the farmstand! We love sending our healthy, fresh veggies home with everyone, but it does warm our heart an extra bit to be feeding lots of young growing kids. Thanks Zoe, Graham and Becca & Nathan too!

Spring Salad Greens are PLENTIFUL!  Salads at every meal, don’t underestimate the potential for a breakfast salad.   Our favorite new salad topping…frozen blueberries and we are restocked from Spotted Dog Farm. Our road has more rutted spots.  Not bad if you have clearance, challenging if you don’t so feel free to place an order and […]

Turkey & Spinach Curry: Mark Bittman

Photo by Evan Sung for The New York Times Curry…what a nice way to celebrate these longer, yet still crisp days.  And if you have leftover turkey or chicken, what an easy meal! You can cook turkey just for this meal or roast a turkey breast or thighs and use the leftovers.  Would also work […]

Green, a popular color

This week, farm life, is brought to you by the color green. Granted we can’t really see any green in our outside fields yet…just the very first hint where the snow has melted.  And of course where the first chervil plants are poking up..it is that time of year! But we are flush with green […]

Dreaming of Summer Fruit

This has been a week to get further inspired about our maturing orchard.  Yes, we do have a small orchard.  Our farmstand offerings have been modest thus far, a few offerings of fresh apples, plums & currants, applesauce, plum sauce, black currant coulis, elderflower tea and a few other specialized items. But our (and the orchard’s) […]

Saag Gosht

Greens are in a great abundance for this recipe in the next few weeks.  We had heard the description of this recipe for a several years from one of our Farm Share members and it always sounds so good. Last year, Molly typed it up during spring greens season.  Here it is back, just in […]

Back to the Farm Room

This week included some time back in our farm processing room.  The results are tasty and satisfying.  We have let the room be quiet for some time this winter to allow farmers time to rest, reflect and get to some other projects. But it has been calling, promising more sausage, soups, pickles….and we answered the […]
