Santa Claus is Coming to White Barn Farm!

Posted 12/7/2017 12:05pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.
Farmstand Hours this Weekend:
Friday: 10am to 6pm
Saturday & Sunday: 10am to 4pm
Seafood Truck: Friday 2-6, Sat & Sun 10-2 

Santa Claus will be at the farm on Sunday, December 10th, from 11am to 2pm. Bring your little cuties to come meet him. They can sit with Santa on the old Model T - bring your camera! Don't miss this amazing photo-op amidst a little slice of Wrentham history. Bring a couple cash dollars to donate or a non-perishable donation to the food pantry to go to Studley Elementary School in Attleboro.

Also on Sunday: Wood-Fired Pizza!! Marty Pearson is driving his wood-fired oven on a trailer right to the farm. The fire will be getting started around 10am and fresh pizza pies should be ready by 11am. Now this is a great outing. $10 cheese pizzas!

If you don't have your tree yet, come to White Barn Farm to pick one out!  We have beautiful Fraser Firs: 6'-7' for $55 and 7'-8' for $65.

There are custom decorated wreaths for sale, too. We had so much fun at our wreath decorating workshops last Saturday & Sunday so we are cutting more greenery and Laurene is creating Holiday Centerpieces that will be available this weekend for $20.

 

Now back to why you all started coming to the farm: Food!!

There will be plenty of carrots and beets, potatoes, onions, butternut squash, leeks, winter radishes, and yummy sweet potatoes.

Now that it is getting truly wintery cold, soup is a lovely meal for warming yourself through and through. Leftover soup is a welcome lunch pick me up, too. Here's a link to Martha Stewart's Curried Carrot Soup recipe. A rich warm casserole accompanied by a salad with bitter greens is a nice balance at this time of year. Here's a decadent recipe for Potato and Celery Root Gratin with Leeks from Bon Appetit. If you didn't get enough pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving - make some of that pumpkin spice magic happen starting with roasting sugar pumpkins:

We will have freshly cut spinach, bok choy, and pea tendrils available and we have ordered some salad greens from the superstar growers at Upswing Farm. Brittany and Kevin will be replenishing our stock of green cabbage as well. This is a great time of year to do fish tacos with the traditional cabbage for crunch. Also great time of year for pulled pork with slaw.

Pat's Pastured did not have enough eggs to send up our order this week. So limited supply of eggs this week. 

We will, however, have some little bottles of eggnog from Wright's Dairy Farm. Chris and I were feeling a little wild when we were ordering from Farm Fresh RI's Marketmobile this week - little bottles of coffee milk, chocolate milk, and nog will be on hand. I guess I could just picture kiddos visiting santa and enjoying chocolate milk!

We sold out of the Franklin Honey soaps last weekend so we have ordered more and Lauren is putting together little gift baskets with a little jar of honey and two soaps. We have our WBF pint glasses for sale as another gift idea. We even have some packaged with a gift card inside!

Thanks for all the support, everybody. You each matter so much to this little farm! Thank you and see you soon!
