Hey there White Barn Farm Fanatics!

Get Ready! Saturday, May 4th will be the first farmstand of the season! 10am to 2pm

We will be back to our usual spot under the tent on 1A and we can't wait to see you!  It has been an awfully cool spring, so things are just trickling in, but thanks to the High Tunnel we put up last year there is a little produce to be had! Our new hens are laying eggs.  We have lots of collaborators to round out the offerings . . . and it's time to begin the habit of shopping at the farmstand :)

We expect to have:

  • From our Fields and High Tunnel: Scallions. Spinach. Bok Choy. Arugula. Mizuna. and more?
  • Our own eggs and Puddingstone Organics eggs
  • Iggy's Bread, including pastries
  • Sheldonville Roasters coffee beans
  • Franklin Honey
  • Maple Syrup from James & Sarah at Liberty Farm in Poultney, VT
  • Jordan Brothers Seafood
  • Organic Seeds for your garden from High Mowing
  • MacEnroe Organic Potting Soil and Compost
  • and maybe a sneak peak of plants for your garden


We will be open again with the same lineup:

Saturday, May 11th. 10am to 2pm.

during our Plant Sale, May 18th and 19th. 10am to 4pm (Farmstand & Seafood - Saturday only)

Saturday, May 25th. 10am to 2pm.


Regular Summer Hours* for our Roadside Stand begin Tuesday, May 28th:

Tuesday through Friday, 2pm to 7pm

(!!!new this year: Wednesdays we will open at 10am. for busy parents, night-shifters, and traffic avoiders)

Saturdays 10am to 2pm

*at this point, Jordan Brothers Seafood will start coming Tuesdays and Fridays, 2pm to 7pm.


Thank you all for waiting all winter long! We would not be here without your support!

See you soon!

This may be the time of year you begin to wonder what ever happened to your farmers? What are they doing? Is it Spring yet?

Yes! Despite the snow lingering in the shade and the chilly winds, the Vernal Equinox has come and gone and the days are now longer than the nights! Chris and our faithful farm crew, Laurene, Dylan, and Ben, have been at work in the greenhouse, getting things started.  The high tunnel we put up last year has new seeds planted in all the beds and there are all sorts of seedlings up in our heated greenhouse.

SHARES AVAILABLE IN OUR CSA (COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE) PROGRAM.  We are expanding our CSA for 2013. We are offering 100 shares this year, up from 75, and adding a new pick-up day, Wednesday. We finally got through our waiting list and still have a few openings available for Tuesday or Wednesday pick-up. If you are interested in joining the CSA, reply to this email and we can make it happen. Read all about the CSA under the CSA Menu on our website, http://whitebarnfarm.org/

PLANT SALE. May 18th and 19th will be our Fifth Annual Plant Sale! Mark your calendars! We grow starts for your gardens in our greenhouse using organic potting soil and feeding only with organic fish and seaweed fertilizer and sunshine, of course. The sale is 10am to 4pm both days.

NEW HIGH TUNNEL & MORE CHICKENS. We are going to have a new high tunnel (basically a greenhouse) for cut flowers this year. It will be used for overflow plant sale plants in the late spring and season extension for cut flowers in fall and early spring. It has been almost completely assembled by Chris and Eliot (who is Christy’s Dad, aka “the farm wizard”). This structure is taking the place of the farm's first greenhouse, which has been uprooted and moved to house our new flock of hens. They have merged with the survivors of the old flock and only an intermittent squawk has been heard since they met. We are hoping the larger flock means we will have a better supply of our own eggs this year. In fact, the five eggs a day jumped to nine yesterday so maybe the new ones have started laying? The only thing is that they weren’t that small like first eggs usually are.  We might need a laying box stake-out to get to the bottom of this.

BABY GRAHAM. Our son, Graham, is now five months old. He is such a mellow, happy guy and ridiculously cute. He was an intrepid traveler this winter as we visited his great-grandparents and great-aunt and uncle in Texas, his grandpa in California, and his grandma, cousins and aunt in Arizona. The house here in Wrentham is grand central station for our family and farm family so he sees lots of people every day and gets loved and held by so many folks! He does not enjoy farm work yet, however. I can thin about half a tray of seedlings with him in the Baby Bjorn before he is ready to move some more. I have been struggling with being more of a mom than a farmer so far this season.  For years now, my identity and confidence has been derived from my work, so being inside while the crew works in the greenhouse makes me feel somewhat conflicted. At the same time, I had no idea how attached I could become to my adorable baby boy and the last thing I want to do is leave him. We do have plans for a babysitter during the summer . . .  For now Graham is in charge of PR.

OPENING DAY/SATURDAYS IN MAY. We will be open on Saturdays beginning May 4th, 10am to 2pm. Jordan Brothers Seafood will be joining us for those Saturdays. We will have a produce stand at our Plant Sale, May 18 & 19. Then we will be open again the following Saturday, May 25th and then the regular season begins Tuesday, May 28th! That means the CSA starts up and the Roadside Stand is open five days a week: Tuesday to Friday 2pm to 7pm and Saturday 10am to 2pm. At that point, Jordan Brothers will start selling seafood on Tuesdays and Fridays (no more Saturdays).

MORNING FARMSTAND. Due to popular demand, we are going to try opening early one weekday a week to accommodate the schedules of busy parents, afternoon traffic avoiders, night-shift folk, etc. It will probably be Wednesday at 10am. Stay tuned for the official info.

SLIDESHOW AT THE LIBRARY. In 2007, the year before Christy started White Barn Farm, she took an odyssey through Europe, working on farms in exchange for room and board (WWOOFing). She is showing pictures and sharing stories about these travels for the Sohoanno Garden Club of Wrentham on Tuesday, March 26th at 7pm at the Wrentham Public Library. No charge but donations to the food pantry are encouraged!

DINNER & DISCUSSION AT ZEBRA’S BISTRO. The other day we got a call from Wrentham resident and owner of Zebra’s Bistro in Medfield, Craig Neubecker. He has gotten many of the plants for his kitchen garden at our plant sale and sometimes stops by our stand to pick up produce for the restaurant. He asked if we would lead a discussion about sustainable food at the Chefs Collaborative Earth Dinner on Wednesday April 17th. Food is our favorite topic, so we are proud to oblige! It will be a 3 or 4  course set menu based on locally sourced ingredients (as much as possible in April). If you are interested in more details, visit http://zebrasbistro.com/ or facebook.com/ZebrasBistro.

Hello Again Farm Supporters!

Two weekends left for White Barn Farm Season 2012! We hope your dinners have been enhanced by this year's extended season of fresh produce availability.  It has actually been pretty fun to have an extended season of seeing you all and to enjoy the ambiance in the barn.  Feel free to come park in the parking area in front of the barn. On Friday evening,  we are there until 6pm even though it is dark and the barn door is closed to keep in a little heat - so come on in! Come by Saturday morning from 10am to 2pm for seafood (and all the rest!).  Saturday the farmstand will also be featuring pottery made by the talented Karl Zielgler.  AND Friday, Franklin Honey is dropping off a selection of their soaps that make splendid gifts. I'd say that locally produced soaps, honey, and coffee are truly special gifts - perfect consumables for people that don't need another thing.

Hello Faithful Farm Supporters!

For the last four years, you may have noticed one random December Saturday that White Barn Farm has been descended upon by millions of cars with bike racks on top, a wild course made of fence stakes and caution tape winding around the fields, and thousands of spandex wearing bikers. This is an event put on by my cousin, Thom Parsons, and his cohorts called the Ice Weasels, it is an official CycloCross event and it is a fun and spirited blowout and it is happening this Saturday, December 8th. In the past, we've never been open in the winter, but this year we have too many vegetables to be closed during the races. We are going to be open Friday afternoon from 2pm to 6pm. There will be unimpeded parking and zero chaos during that time.  Feel free to come park in the parking area in front of the barn. If chaos is not your bag, visit us then - we are there until 6pm even though it is dark and the barn door is closed to keep in a little heat - so come on in! If action and excitement is your thing, or if you just plain will stop at nothing to get your fix of fresh produce and seafood, come by Saturday morning from 10am to 2pm.  We're asking the parking coordinators to reserve an area for farmstand shoppers directly across from the front of the house (in front of where we had sunflowers growing this year for anyone who recalls that) - that is , on the side of the street where the tent usually is.  Be patient and take in the fun-loving culture of cyclocross. There will be a couple of food trucks at the race, too, if you feel like having a picnic.

Hello Good Food Lovers!

We hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous. We certainly had a tremendous feast. Now it is holiday spirit time, when we decorate with lights as the days grow shorter and shorter! These short and chilly days really call for comfort food. Warm roasted vegetables, hearty stews, braised meats, rich soups, and sauteed greens. It’s a great time for pumpkin pie with whipped cream – that was my triumphant contribution to the feast this year. It was an Alton Brown recipe with a gingersnap crust – outstanding! Of course it’s also a great time for carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, apple crisp, and beet chocolate cake or cupcakes. All of these delectables can feature locally grown produce.

The Annual Thanksgiving Sale is Upon Us! So suddenly!!!! Time flies when all you do is breastfeed.  We will be holding our sale in the barn again and we will be there both Friday and Saturday. We've collaborated with some other local farms to sweeten the deal for you! Hopefully we can facilitate a one-stop locally grown food stop for all your holiday needs! We have bought in organic cranberries, carrots, sweet potatoes, and parsnips for all of your Thanksgiving Classics. We will also have apples for your pies from Wrentham's Big Apple. We will also have the usual treats: the bread, eggs, coffee, and honey; plus bee products, dried flower wreaths and seafood on Saturday.

We count on your patronage for this important fall sale. We hope our produce makes your feast that much more special and delicious. I know we love to look around our table and point out everything that has come from the farm or a friend's farm. People think we are good cooks, but we have a huge head start because everything is so fresh and was raised with care.  Since we are late as usual advertising our sale, we would greatly appreciate it if you would forward this email to anyone who you think may be interested in picking up some produce for the feast or just mention it on facebook or by the good old-fashioned word-of-mouth.

Park either in front of the barn or at the side of the house in an orderly fashion or park at the Roadside Stand as usual and carefully cross the road.

IMPORTANT!!

The farmstand will be IN the White Barn for the rest of the season.

You may park in an orderly fashion in the driveway in front of the barn and by the side of the house, or you can park as usual by the Roadside Stand and carefully cross the street.

Be Careful! Hardly anyone will stop for you - sometimes not even for an obviously pregnant lady with a wheelbarrow in a thunderstorm!

HOURS for NOVEMBER & DECEMBER:

 Saturdays from 10am to 2pm (Except the Saturday after Thanksgiving - everyone's stuffed)


PARTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS . . . . .

Floyd says he will try to come down from Barre with pastured pork from his farm, Burnshirt Valley, and grass-fed beef from his neighbor's farm, Caledonia. Let's hope so! Ground beef and italian sausage make such good meatballs. Sausage goes so well with bitter greens too . . . .

there is a CERTAINTY of:

  • Jordan Brothers Seafood. Bobby Jordan called earlier this week to report that he would probably not have any fish to sell Saturday due to the storm - all the fleets were in and the seas remained rough for days after Hurricane Sandy. But! Lucky us, he called today to say some boats have gone out and he will send a truck with what was looking good. That does mean, most likely, a limited supply.
  • Iggy's Bread & Pastries. I should not know how delicious the sticky buns are, but I do . . . 
  • White Barn Produce, Of Course! Chard, Kale, Lettuce, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Turnips, Rutabaga, Radishes, Beets, Cabbage, Potatoes, and many other treats. Fresh Delicious Stuff! Stock up for the week! Fresh stuff lasts long.
  • Sheldonville Roasters Coffee
  • Puddingstone Organics Eggs
  • Franklin Honey
  • From Asparagus to Zucchini cookbooks
Thank you, as always, for all of the wonderful enthusiasm and dedication you all have to good food and our farm! If you feel like browsing some nice recipe ideas, look under the recipe menu on www.whitebarnfarm.org

That is the end of the official news. Now for anyone who has been following the progress of the farm baby:

Baby Graham is doing great. We are probably prejudiced, but Chris and I think he is the cutest thing we have ever seen and we are totally in love with him. The amazing lactation consultants at Sturdy (basically breastfeeding coaches) have me on a healthy path to feeding him well. He is growing and doing just what he's supposed to. We are learning fast and loving every moment. For anyone who missed our earlier announcement, Graham O'Neill Kantlehner was born at 1:15 am October 26 at Sturdy Memorial Hospital. He weighed 8lbs 2oz and was 20 inches long. Although I tried to give birth naturally all day and night Thursday, I did end up having a C-section so we didn't get home from the hospital until Tuesday, October 30. He was a little small for his Halloween costumes, but he did wear his pumpkin hat to celebrate. Hopefully tomorrow there will be a moment between feedings and diaper changes when he can come chill at the farmstand. But mommy did hear about an incredible warehouse clear out "fill-a-bag" sale at Zoolittle kids consignment shop (on 152 in Plainville) from 10am to 3pm. So we may have to zoom there to stock up on some cozy stuff for the winter ahead right at 2pm.

Here is the only picture I can manage to upload at this instant. I can hear Baby Graham waking up and he'll be hungry!!

GOOD MORNING FOLKS, our newest sprout has arrived!!! It's a boy! Graham O'Neill Kantlehner was born at 1:15 am October 26 2012. He is super healthy and cute, he must take after his mother. Mama farmer is doing great!!!!

Our new little family is still recovering at the hospital, but you should  come celebrate the fall harvest at white barn farm today from 10-4 for the 3rd annual Harvestween.

But don't miss Franklin Honey's Farmstand, the 4Paws Bake Sale (treats for people today!), Karl Zeigler's Pottery, Jordan Brothers Seafood, and all of the White Barn Bounty. Just bring your own cup of brewed coffee :) Thank you so much for your support!
