Last two weekends in the barn!!!

Posted 12/15/2017 12:31pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hey everybody! Sorry for not getting this reminder out sooner - we have been caught up all week with the bi-annual New England Vegetable and Fruit Growers Conference in Manchester, NH. These meetings are such a source of inspiration, ideas, innovations, exchanges, and socializing with farming community members that have spread out all over New England. These meetings provide better understanding of how to prevent disease, avoid insects, build soil and derive fertility from cover cropping. Fabulous vegetable varieties are discussed, marketing, business management, grafting, high tunnel management, microgreens production etcetera!!! So our minds have been full!!!

HOURS
This weekend (12/15 - 12/17):
Friday 10-6, Sat & Sun 10-4
 
Seafood Truck is here Friday 2-6, Saturday 10-2.
**No seafood on Sunday this weekend or next!**
 
Next weekend (12/22 & 12/23). same hours, but closed Sunday.

We still have some fresh greens for you to enjoy:

spinach

frisee

sugarloaf (white radicchio)

pea tendrils

baby kale

plus winter darlings:

watermelon radish - bright pink confetti to jazz up your bitter greens salad!

leeks - excellent for cheesy pastas and essential for winter soups!

rutabaga - roasted or mashed. sometimes called a yellow turnip

celery root - try it in a chicken soup, beef stew, medley or roasted roots, mashed with potato

beets - traditional beet red, golden, and chioggia (candy-striped inside, usually fading to pink when cooked)

carrots - 2lb bags are $4 this week

Upswing Farm has still got us stocked up with sweet potatoes, winter squash, and bunches of kale this week.

Sparrow Arc Farm delivered a whole new round of organic potatoes. It's been too cold to wash them so you will have to hose 'em down in your sink.

Lots of Hot Italian Sausage to fry up with some garlic and onions, kale, and white beans. 

Pat's Pastured just dropped off plenty of eggs for the weekend. Plus pork chops for the two customers who were asking earlier today :\

Lots of fresh-roasted coffee beans arrived this week from Sheldonville Roasters!

Holiday centerpieces made with fresh evergreens are available. We even have a few Christmas trees left for anyone who has been waiting to decorate.

Hope to see you this weekend! Don't forget to bundle up!

Your frigid farmers (only in the most literal way), Christy and Chris
