Holidays and Changes at the Farm
It seems that winter has come early this year, with two days of snowfall already under our belts and another big storm in the forecast for Friday. The crew is still working on getting the fields and equipment ready for winter; straw was delivered this morning and will be used to cover and protect the strawberries from the cold.
With all this wintry weather, it can be tempting to skip ahead and start preparing for the December holidays. But Thanksgiving, arguably the best holiday of the year for food, is next week and we have everything you need for a local, organic Thanksgiving feast. (This week leading up to Thanksgiving we’re open every day from Friday to Wednesday!)
Have a local feast
In preparation for the holiday, the kitchen crew has been cooking up a storm, as always. They’re making special desserts and delicious seasonal sides, which you can special order online or in the farmstand by noon on Sunday, November 18 and pick up during open hours Monday-Wednesday.
Limited quantities of the special order items may be available prior to Thanksgiving, along with pre-made hors d’oeuvres and ingredients for you to make your own desserts and sides. Think: fresh greens, organic produce, pie crusts, pumpkin puree, two types of bread cubes, etc. We even have organic dried herbs!
Decorate for the holiday
As always, our farmstand is filled with beautiful plants and festive decorations for your home or dinner table:
- Fragrant harvest bouquets
- Fresh herb planters of rosemary, sage, and thyme – look and smell wonderful, and can be harvested straight from your kitchen window
- Gourds – fun to mix into dinner table decorations
- Grapevine wreaths – hang in your breezeway, kitchen or hallway, or add them to your dinner table
They also make great gifts for your host or hostess. And Michelle and Marnie made lovely dried flower greeting cards, too!
New horizons for Cedar Circle
Some exciting new changes will be taking place here at the farm as we go into next season, our 19th year! We will begin a process of transitioning the structure of the farm from an LLC (farm business with a social mission) to a full on non-profit organization. Part of the excitement is transitioning leadership from the original founders to the next generation of farmers and educators who will focus on climate resilient farming. Our eye is still on the planet and the future generations who will inhabit it. Read more here.
