Sautéed Kale-sparagus

Sometimes Mari’s ideation gets us in trouble, sometimes it opens great doors.  This week was the latter. We introduce a Spring ephemeral on the farm – Kale-sparagus.   Tender, succulent, delicious fast growing shoots of the Kale plant heading to flower.  This is no ordinary kale stalk, and Mari knew it when she saw it.

Embracing THIS Vermont Spring?

As farmers we have somehow learned to work with and around the weather.  We obsess over the weather, truly, and sometimes wish, hope and even plead for certain circumstances, though we know it is one of the many things over which we have no control.  This winter has tried the patience and systems of many, […]

Uncle!

The sun is getting so much stronger and days longer… but darn some of the days and lots of the nights have been severely cold! We’ve got some wonderfully bouncy and big goat kids but their early hours have required much more of us than usual. Lots of hypothermia bucket baths and blow dries and […]

New Beginnings

Spring and its new beginnings are blooming at the farm.   This past week has seen several new beginnings including: potatoes, tomatoes, peas and the first carrots in the ground!  Glance into the near hoophouse (that just a few weeks ago housed goats and hens) to enjoy the site of tomatoes happily in the ground!
